An important route, after it receives the walker from the pavement it leads him into the heart of the square where he comes into full contact with nature.
The planting is placed regularly on both sides of the square which share the same boarders with the pavements. It is also placed irregularly along the sides of the roads to reduce any noise pollution. The grand's materiality consists of linear marble blocks.
Aiming for the core's semantic strengthening, the ground is placed in a way that the presence of the green, which is strong, increases while approaching the center of the square in which it dominates.
Finally, the core is surrounding by four concrete seats, which allow the visitors to defuse any tensions at the public space, cut out from the disturbance of the bustling city.
