Project idea

The project is located in northeastern Timisoara, the Lipovei neighborhood, an area with communist blocks. This area presents the need for a sports area.
The activity nodes in the neighborhood are made at the small playgrounds between the blocks of flats.
This project aims to integrate into contexts, by solving the problems at the community level, namely the lack of space and leisure. It was said that the site is not a private building but to make a connection of an activity node creating relationships between community and user functions.
By the complexity of the activities that can take place in the complex, the social relations develop.
The community is a continuous spectator of the activities carried out in this architecture program.
