following up on our previous coverage of the project, barcelona-based practice nabito architects (alessandra faticanti, roberto ferlito) has sent us images of the recently completed ‘sensational park’, a new public space in the neighbourhood of corso lazio in frosinone, italy. aiming to provide a relational space that fills in the existing social void in a playful, sensorial and interactive manner, the park is the starting point to a masterplan to renew the housing neighbourhood.

conceived as a ‘personal living room in a public realm’, the park features both artificial and natural elements that stimulate the five human sense in a sequential manner. the garden is planted with a variety of different materials and vegetation to relate to a metaphor of the space. the ground level changes in elevation, with a network of winding pathways defining an arrangement of conic protrusions. the walkway encourages visitors to take in the park in parts, incorporating a sense of discovery to the experience.

  • Lipstick on cement; it’s still a pig. While the sidewalk outlay is more interesting than most, the arid patches of sparse grass are typically Italian. As are the sad looking trees buried in cement. Whether Frosinone, or most any Italian town, all that white paint will soon be covered in graffitti. Real green space is sorely lacking in Italy (eco-friendly sprinklering is available). Unfortunately “Un-Sensational.”

    For a greener Italy
  • I it raw cement or painted white?
