A boundary is not that at which something stops but, as the Greeks recognized, the boundary is that from which something

begins its presencing.

 

Building, Dwelling, Thinking, Martin Heidegger, Darmstadt, 1951.

It's the laboratory the place where we work and study. Here, observing and reflecting, we do practice. It's the storehouse in which collect the imprinted signs along the way.

The Darsena Pisana today appears to be an area in constant evolution. A space halfway between the city and suburbs,between industry and nature, between heaven and earth that has lost its designation of place.

The design strategy is based on reorganization and implementation of the dock. The goal of the project is to adapt existent, retraining the full, reorganizing empty and looking for a perfect balance between quiet and activities, thanks to the total permeability of place.

The water in this new configuration isn’t a physical limit but an element characterizing the place.
