New project for an inclusive waterfront
The idea of the regenerating fleece, of its executive transposition, the Cilento basket, become evident in the very area of the water front. The system includes, as main points:
* Shifting the elevation of the current road auction;
* Construction of a one-way lane for residents and businesses only;
* Partial coverage of the road section with new promenade;
* Extension of the promenade to the sea.
The redefinition of the mobility system with the partial burying of the road section allows not only to leave the road flow unchanged but also to expand the promenade through the system of partial coverage of the road. This will also allow for thematizations of the promenade with the creation of areas that are different from each other in terms of location, tree essences, commercial activities present, and altimetric position.
In addition, always following the metaphor of the fleece and the Cilento basket that partially covers the road, the same system allows the sea-side promenade to be extended with two different systems namely small overhangs that again allow special thematizations and with long floating walkways that cut through the water allowing the promenade to be orthogonal to the shoreline.
Taking advantage of the system developed by Christo and Jeanne Claude on Lake Iseo, The Floating Piers, the proposed promenades allow, thanks to a simple and zero-impact system, to enjoy the stretch of coastline in a new and unusual way becoming a real tourist attraction thanks to their function, their emotional power to the ability to offer a new vision of the stretch of coastline and the entire city of Agropoli.
On the opposite side, the promenade attacks the buildings almost as if it were a vine, healing their wounds and restoring a unified vision of the entire seafront. As if they were roots, the buildings are enveloped by the basket-based system it generates from the promenade becoming a unified space.
