Description Change this

A very simple infrastructure for the pools of Bellinzona creates a complementary landscape with the pedestrian walkaway raised 6 m above the level of the river. It connects the city with the valley of Ticino, Castalgrande hill and the natural environment. The structure is all build in the concrete structure. All functional aspects of the pool have been resolved by subordinating them to a spatial vision, meant to merge the city with the river through a pedestrian walkway, a structure that provides the open expansion of a city character, a projected landscape, ready to accommodate new activities and functions.
