A metropolitan scale public space
The Science Park is conceived as a public green space on a Metropolitan scale despite its size. Aimed as a recreational space for scientific dissemination but at the same time an enjoyment open space for the general population, the park is configured as one more link within a system of public and semi-public spaces that are located in the Palermo Rail Yard.
The project is synthesized in 4 basic operations:
1 – A system of pedestrian paths that intersect along the park.
2 – A south boundary, orthogonally executed with a wooden deck, with permeable soles.
3 – A limit to the north, flexible, executed in reinforced concrete, like containment of the ravine, impermeable.
4 – A system of programs of internal contemplation to the routes and of external interaction to the system of roads.
5 – The natural green landscape extends along the park reinforcing the interaction of all the aforementioned elements.
