City of Gardens : Firenze, Italy


Radical Exploration in Vertical Gardening in old Cities

City of Gardens : Firenze, Italy


Radical Exploration in Vertical Gardening in old Cities
My project explores how old cities can adapt to new technological and cultural necessities with minimal impact to the historic locations.

‘City of Gardens’ is a radical exploration in vertical gardening and the ability of old cites, like Florence, to adapt to new technologies. My proposal is for the city of Florence, but the concept could be applied globally to any city. What I am proposing in Florence is a large scale intervention, a continuous wall of vegetation, that adapts to the local conditions of each street and piazza. Other than the gardening aspect, the proposal is a vertical park that links all the significant places in the city. The 'wall' is also a botanical garden and can display vegetation within the structure. For example, a cafe on the piazza, can grow teas and coffee in the wall locally or a library may have a secluded reading space within a rare plants section. The creation of spaces immersed in vegetation promotes clean air and various other gardens give tourist new ways to view old attractions. 'City of Gardens' inspires culture and interaction for all in the community.
