dalla relazione di progetto | An alternative to the current derelict condition of the square is produced by overlapping on the ground a new public presence: the media library. A public ground that can be alienated, but which can also be occupied by a building. Rather than erase one of the two elements, the sum of ground and building produces fusions and multiplications. The building, the functions, the connections and the relationships, determine different pressures. The ground-fault twists and folds up, producing new topographies … A non-square, which could not compete with the nearby squares only by force, finds the energy to revitalize itself through the stratagem of the courtyard. In the courtyards are stored secondary objects, service tools, accessories. The strategy of the courtyard is declined through the accumulation, the juxtaposition, the superposition which multiplies the relationship between the elements.
