Designed by CRA- Carlo Ratti Associati and MIC-Mobility in Chain, the proposed plan for the Swiss city Lugano creates a network of public spaces, that connects the town to the lake. The project puts in place a floating garden and a reconfigurable waterfront. Imagined by international design and innovation office CRA- Carlo Ratti Associati, in partnership with Mobility in Chain (MIC), a transport-planning firm based in Milan, Moscow and New York, the proposal for Lugano’s Waterfront aims to increase the number of connections between the city and the lake. Introducing innovative solutions, the designers created a series of public interventions like a “floating garden island, a new water navigation system and reconfigurable roads capable of responding to people in real-time”, to restore the main traffic artery cutting through Lugano’s shore, and to reconnect the city and its lake.
