In response to the ever-changing needs of the gardens and the river, the overall design is a flexible steel skeleton that accommodate a path bringing pedestrians to experience the river at different layers: vertically, from street, to river bed, up to an overlook to Ponte Vecchio / Uffizi; horizontally, with plants and exterior fabrics as sliding planes revealing and hiding views of the river. It also connects different urban functions along the Arno. Overall, this “garden-river path” is a framework to absorb an endless series of further meanings, extensions and intentions.
