piano di quartiere a Yverdon  
Our study consists in a neighbourhood plan and the design of public spaces for the new urbanization of Les Parties, a new neighbourhood west of Yverdon-Les-Bains. Following the motto "constructed park", the municipality is planning to build residences, public gardens, a commercial area, arts and crafts centres and depots for local and regional buses. Of the many areas of expansion identified in the town planning scheme, this neighbourhood will be the first one to be designed: its construction will be based on the concept of 'threshold', providing the town with a new model of development. The term 'threshold' refers to the passage from urbanized to rural territory and it is composed by three elements: the linear park, the axes cutting the park, and the new neighbourhoods that will be built inside it (constructed park).
