It will be a permeable urban settlement, as an open filter. This system doesn’t work on the dualism between “inner private spaces” and “external open spaces”, but on the relationship between space and territory. Working this way we avoid to close the different zones with definite and inflexible boundaries. Infrastructural system is one of the relevant issues in the project. We started from the existing transportation systems to formulate the settlement. An appropriate approach may be to design an infrastructure that includes roads, cycleways, pedestrian path, lighting and facilities and natural elements. The Novi Grad is a place that must offer a GRADUAL interchange between different transport systems. A new system of roads also offer a new design for public and private spaces. We offer a new urban design with distinctive and relevant elements in the scheme. The “NOVI GRADUAL” is nothing but an attempt to create a project to regenerate the area through a series of strategies that go beyond the mere reality of architecture. The project strategy seeks to overcome the urban chaos and spatial disorder of the place, turning them into possible potential for development, at the same time try to highlight all the positive characteristics that are part of it. The urban disorder and the absence of a real network of public spaces, propose a strategy based on some sort of basic urban redevelopment. The urban regeneration is based on “revitalization” of the area. Regeneration to be achieved through the design of focused strategies, capable of triggering a chain of strong and shared decision-making. The project idea has focused on the redefinition of some key points: • Road setting, giving the role of texture, orientation and identification of urban space; • making system of the infrastructural network in order to facilitate the intermodal exchange; • Access and permeability of the Sava river’s bank functional and typological mixitè, able to generate and accept flows; • landscape and environmental regeneration of the area. This series of solutions covers the various scales of urban design. The project moves through the provision of targeted actions, especially on open spaces, offering a series of new architectural elements that can establish itself as the new reference of the urban settlement and reshaping some problematic parts of the urban system. URBAN VISION: Is based on shared and sustainable development, trying to draw a continuous public space.
