Parco Centrale di Prato

October 10, 2016

EMBT has received the 3rd place (ex aequo with Elemental studio) at the competition for Parco Centrale di Prato with a proposal that mixes the history of the place into the urban area.

‘We have recovered the original route of the old channel that had an industrial use, to turn it into a central element of the park to serve users, citizens and visitors. This channel divides, subdivides, the areas of the park, like a thread that weaves a natural landscape and connects with the urban area of Prato.’ – Benedetta Tagliabue – group leader
