A portal connecting the city and the wood, the urban and the wild.
The artificial and the natural put apart by an almost symbolic, imaginary boundary.
That’s why we made it curvaceous, dodging the trees and surrounding them with a surprising design that plays with spaces; it is inside and out at the same time.
The whole is composed of lines of force and movement, and it distinguishes itself from the landscape by being a continuous element that frames the green and attracts the curiosity.
