The project was born in a coastal area which, suitably redeveloped and enhanced, can become the new urban centrality of reference for other similar situations along the south coast.
The P.S.T. it fits in the center of a vast post-industrial landscape (never in operation) characterized by the presence of buildings that have been abandoned for years, at present it is an area of margin inaccessible to the population who cannot go to live this place with an admirable landscape .
It is essentially an area that has the potential to accommodate the maximum urban concentration of: services, research and advanced production over time.
The P.S.T. is a sustainable answer to what they would like to do on the site, that is, a coal-fired power plant which would damage this place again, where there is an admirable landscape, in fact, as you can see in one of the tables there is a characteristic image of the place where you can see the beauty of the landscape but also the contamination of man with liquichimica.
Therefore the SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL PARK of Saline Joniche will be a complex system of material and immaterial, physical and perceptual relationships in a space-time container in constant evolution between development and innovation, ethical and economic.
The landscape is conceived as a life scenario between "functional" and environmental aspects "a complex organism in evolution in which its natural, anthropic, humanistic perceptual matrices interact, not therefore" landscape-museum "but a" laboratory - landscape "in the sense of exchange and mimetic integration.
The project stems from a very close dialectic between "the environment-park" and "the built" where Nature and Architecture travel in symbiosis; intends to be the "protagonist" in a system based on the latest innovations in the field of reducing consumption and environmental pollution, with the aim of integrating the various aspects of sustainable architecture with particular attention to the recovery of solar energy , given the characteristics of the place.
