This project reflects on the nature of spaces between the city and the port, and identifies a new intermediate environment, as an autonomous element, a finite area with its own language and characteristics, differing from the buildings and spaces of the port, as well as from those of the city.
Med Park (Mediterranean Environmental Deck) is the new area in the Port of Naples dedicated to the reception of passengers, travelers, tourists and residents.
The project has three ordering principles: the rationalization of maritime and land practicability; a new urban park as a mediation between town and port activities; and the technological and environmental efficiency of infrastructure networks, supported by the park and oriented towards safeguarding the environment and limiting energy consumption.
