VIVI Porto Corallo ideas for the redevelopment and enhancement of the seafront of Villaputzu -Italy

Submission: July 02, 2018
RegistrationJuly 02, 2018
Language: English
Location: Porto Corallo – Villaputzu, Sardinia – Italy
Prizes: Please see details below
Type: Open International Design Competition

 

The overall objective is to enhance the Porto Corallo promenade; the stretch from the mouth of the Flumendosa to the beach of Porto Su Tramatzu. This would create a connection which, starting from the upgrading of the existing coastal road, would integrate it with a system of low-impact, low-speed routes (slow ways), thereby allowing for a more sustainable use of beaches and other areas of naturalistic, landscape and cultural interest.

This system of routes will include public equipped areas, in which both the inhabitants of the place and tourists will be able to enjoy playful, recreational and sporting activities in the open air. The new connection system will have to link up existing services, starting with the marina. However, at the same time it will have to be a framework on which to build any further services that may be implemented in the future.
