"As the title of our project “Cultivating synergies” expresses it, our project tries to embrace the different potentialities of the site in order to make them resonate together. So the main issue for us was to make the best use of the potential of the site with minimal intervention. We believe that Living cities are built with respect and consider urban planning as a way to enhance the relations between a social, a natural and a built infrastructure."
