Spazio Sangone

Masterplan competition. 1st PRIZE


A. Accotto, S. Bergamo, T. Fracas, A. Pelleriti, L. Serais

The competition «Masterplan del contratto di fiume del torrente Sangone» is launched by the Provincia di Torino in the occasion of the signature of the Sangone river contract. The «river contract» is a spatial planning tool issue from the French experience. It aims at engaging all the City Councils facing a same water basin in a common land and water management.

As in many others parts of the world, rapid industrialisation during the 60-70's has led to a growing disinterest towards the river, often used to unload waste materials.

The masterplan is designed to orient the future development towards the river. After an accurate analysis, the project suggests several local projects aimed at enhancing the role of the river as the « backbone » of the territory.

The masterplan was developed in a mixed-competence team, togheter with agronomy and biology students.
