The natural element represented by the stream divides the land into two distinct parts. Thanks to this renewed connection it will be possible to create a solid relationship between work for the completion of the Selargius Linear Park and the new park to be created in the outlying area near Quartucciu’s sports facilities. The two systems of sports facilities, today unconnected, aim to create a single large “City of Sports”.
The strategy of the plan, which derives from a “bottom up” participatory process, features an approach based on the organic unity of forms generated by landscape use, conferring upon this strip of land a special dynamism and a typically connotative character.
The forms, with soft contours, are distributed fluidly along the perimeter of the area, so as also to include in a vaster perimeter the existing sports facilities, for which a formal and functional renovation is foreseen.
The bringing together of the natural elements, the routes planned and the architectural unity with which the plan has been conceived, are the focal elements on which to base the executive plan.
This is a plan grounded on flexible external areas, including fitness and information points, children’s recreation areas, cafés and refreshment stands, a playground, a skate park, sports fields and an aqua park. The sports structure is generated by movement of the landscape and includes the grandstand of the existing pitch.
