GARDEN DESIGN . JUSTICE PALACE IN LUGANO
In the citycenter on the homonymous street is the Justice Palace in Lugano. It is a characteristic building of Ticinese’s architecture of the ‘70s. An imposing concrete building which, structured in dislocated blocks, generate a lovely private courtyard on his inside part.
Today the private courtyard is a car parking zone containing also the main pedonal exchange between the various blocks and the people flow trough this space is totally messive.
The project for the total refresh and modernization of the building [in collaboration with the architectural firm Buletti Fumagalli and Associates in Lugano] clearly translate the outdoor space into a private green park at benefit of the Palace. An important stategy to crate smart paths and connections between the various and different accesses to this building was made togheter with the urban matrix of the entire sector involving more building in the area.
The choice for a green area growing by four big circles which meet and contrast with the mineral paving, are designed to create a balanced atmosphere of the visual space, encouraging a sense of greater breadth and dinamicity.
The essences have been studied in evolution with the season ables to vary during months so that it will be possible from every block to see "a garden in bloom" during the whole year.
