Study of soft mobility routes (pedestrian+cycle) in the Stupinigi Hunting Lodge Park to connect the Castello di Parpaglia to the IRCCS (Piedmont Foundation for Oncology) analysing the history of the place, the existing routes, the features of the architectural and natural elements, the needs of local and foreign visitors to define a system of pavilions to offer rest, info and to enhance the existing natural and cultural landscapes. Modular pavilion units can be composed in different configurations with various degrees of articulation, opening and transparency to provide intimacy, shade, observation points or invitation to exploration and discoveries. The main bamboo structure, local material cultivated in nearby fields, supports panels which materiality and texture contribute to define the pavilion features along with its location and shape.
