waterfront Chillon  
The lake waterfront presents several valuable aspects, such as the views towards the castle, the path along the lake, the natural shore. Opposing these qualities, a massive infrastructural system, dedicated mainly to transportation, compromises the identity of the spot. The intervention is based on three main points: - redesigning the path along the lake. - reasserting the natural landscape in opposition to the infrastructural one. - reorganizing the plot as space for relationships, both visual and functional. The project “d'abord le bord” (..il primo bordo? si puo' mettere tra parents la traduzione virgolettata, ma non ero sicura del significato in francese) sums up these three goals: a new edge for the lake, constituted by a continuous bike and pedestrian path, which gets articulated through natural and public spaces, accommodating new specific functions (cafeteria, bookshop..).
