Though SantÉlia is situated at the southern point of Cagliari, it is disconnected from rest of the region. Apart from geographical impediments like canyons, there are many reasons why the area is cut off from rest of the land mass. Firstly, it has earned a bad name for its notoriety. Additionally, the social housing project of the 1970s also earned a bad reputation. But a restorative project, that might change all this, is on its way.
Firstly, although the land mass has a unique terrain, it is nevertheless a useful one. The city is located at an exquisite waterfront. It has a characteristic topography, which is a complex amalgamation of interactions and flows surfacing into a series of joints and fields. A plan that uses regenerative patterns promises a new beginning for the city.
An arrangement that suits the topography of the site is being planned. The systemic and developed approach of pattern recognition is being applied to generate sustainable solutions. The nodes and fields on the ground will form the basic framework for this new urban space. The configuration developed will be adaptive and non-programmed. It will have block like structures interconnected by swinging pathways.
This new age multi-modal construction will be quite a landmark. The city will be transformed into an urbane space that conforms to its natural terrain. The changes in the new plan will afford many advantages. The housing project will be revived. A technique to irrigate the land area will also be employed. Also, the city will be reconnected to Cagliari. The suave and well planned project will completely transform the appearance of the landscape.
