"The main issue addressed by the "SYMBIOSIS" project aligns closely with the theme "Living Cities Imagining architecture taking care of the milieus". It focuses on redefining urban spaces to foster a deeper integration between natural ecosystems and built environments. The project emphasizes the regeneration of existing structures and the creation of communal, adaptable spaces that allow for a harmonious coexistence of urban and natural elements. This approach contributes to ecological and social evolution by promoting sustainability, community engagement, and a more thoughtful interaction between human activities and the natural world. By reimagining urban landscapes, the project aims to create living cities that are vibrant, adaptable, and in tune with the environment, thus addressing both ecological and social dimensions of contemporary urban challenges."
