COOL Piazza Vecchia in Bergamo on the DEZEEN Award longlist
The temporary transformation of Piazza Vecchia raised the issue of COOL. It has a double meaning. On the one hand the physical side: the consequences of climate change. On the other hand the light-footed: style, fashion and posture.
Above the Piazza was a cloud of balloons that supported climbers for a green atmosphere: sheltered, embraced and protected from Urban Heat Stress. In the evening, the balloons turned into a sky full of softly glowing moons. In the centre there is a large block of ice that melts and thus makes the influence of climate change tangible.
