The “wings” network
Elevated highways are an ubiquitous feature of ‘burbs across the nation, and many urbanists consider them a blight upon the suburban landscape. Rather than ripping highways down or removing them from sight, the proposed project aims to rehabilitate the aging highway system as a valuable part of the urban environment.
The idea is to develop a “green” network made up by replicable elements that aim to reuse the highway leftover spaces,such as intersections, under-viaduct and setback areas.The green boulevard will valorize the landscape of Italy,will preserve its natural resources,will provide rural population with new activities and will develop the agritourism. But most of all the wings “network”makes you stop and be part of the local community.
