Public space

The magical island has floated upwards in order to improve its relationship with the first phase, allowing a better comprehension and view of the whole complex. The magical island will now be a whole new experience of the imagination in nature, starting from the ramp that will take you down to a subaquatic underworld. from there visitants will be able to experience uncerwater views from the lake mixed with giant screens that will project animations from comics all around the world. a double height space will enlarge the vision and the experience, going from underneath a cluster of waterlillies up to the floating baskets.


The roof will now be an artifical landscape full of trees and green areas, a new experience in nature. a new garden from where to enjoy the views of the white horse lake.
