CONCRETE VS SEA
The first part of this project took place at Lignano Sabbiadoro with a workshop in order to propose a masterplan for the waterfront.
This is a city which is mostly characterized by holiday homes.

The lack of community centers and a continuous and anonymous waterfront has led to the need to bring the sea in town : “il mare dentro”. The theme of the project is the construction of a bathhouse and public utilities made in concrete.

The design concept has also been translated into experimentation with concrete in order to create a dialog between the concrete construction and water.
