Out-there in the cities of the future sidewalks are the new plazas
Alberto Mattiello interviews Luca Nichetto about his parklet idea
First born in San Francisco as a hybrid between a public park and a parking space, parklets have become an urban answer to underutilized space aimed at bringing the neighborhood together and shape the character of the place. Luca Nichetto presents Baia: a modular system of platforms designed for Metalco that redefines the concept of parklet. By focusing on the habits and needs of living in the city, Baia offers a series of functional elements to create areas that exude cozy, welcoming feeling and where nature inspires and lives in perfect harmony with the design.
