Buone vacanze

We wish you great summer holidays with a project that we have loved very much, and fits very well with the atmosphere of the days to come: the paysage ludique in Bois-de-la-batie in Geneve.

ma0_yakari_01aThe project for a playful landscape in Bois-de-la-B√Ętie runs along the border between the forest and clear, merge and blend with the landscape thanks to the sampling and repetition of a characteristic element of the rural and mountanin landscape: wood, piled in stacks on the edge of forests, or close to dwellings
Wood, in trunks or boards, is in fact the basic element of the project, simple, recyclable, natural, easy to maintain and replace, able to create diverse solutions for pathways, benches, playgrounds, objects and informal spaces to explore in a creative way, with the exception of a few classics that can not miss in a game, like the village houses, or swings.
