Meeting place-Sonvico in Switzerland by Studio Enrico Sassi Architect

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017

Article source: Studio Enrico Sassi Architect

The urban regeneration and traffic calming project for the new Spazio Incontro at Sonvico is part of a wider masterplan for the Dino and Sonvico areas. The underlying concept that informs the general project can be summarized in five points:

  1. Identifying an independent pedestrian route separate from the Cantonal road
  2. Improving and redeveloping the pedestrian route that runs through the entire area
  3. Marking the route with consistent materials so that it is easily legible
  4. Redevelop the public realm and pedestrian routes as tools for mitigating car traffic
  5. Improve, where necessary, the availability of services and urban infrastructure (parking, benches, new public spaces).

Flight Traffic Radar in Paris, France by Barthélémy-Griño architectes

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

Article source: Barthélémy-Griño architectes

A flight traffic radar for Orly airport will be built in a new location chosen to provide the best control service in a high traffic airspace while respecting security requirements. The Paris-Saclay redevelopment project and the ban on objects over 174 metres high within a 5 km radius means the current radar must be demolished.

Podčetrtek Traffic Circle in Podčetrtek, Slovenia by ENOTA Architects

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

Article source: ENOTA Architects

The Podčetrtek Traffic Circle is built on a regional road located between the municipal sports hall with open-air sports grounds on one side and a spa centre with numerous swimming pools and hotels on the other side. It is primarily intended to slow down the traffic in this consequently very busy area as the main accesses to both complexes also connect to the traffic circle. The design of the roundabout’s central island thus references the appearance of both facilities and marks the entrance points to the destinations of the visitors to either of the programme centers.
