Ticino

Two years after the opening of the Gotthard Base Tunnel, two years before the completion of the one running under the Ceneri and with the development of the regional transportation project TILO it seems that for Ticino a wonderful future is firmly on track: as a Città Ticino closely connected with Lombardy and within commuting distance of German-speaking Switzerland. Time, therefore, to take a closer look at the Territorio and its urban planning utopias and realities.
 We enquire about the potentials and about the projects for public space and housing construction. And we analyse the development of the professional environment, from the Tendenza of the 1970s to the in influence of the Accademia and to a young generation which, in a market dominated by commercial developers, struggles on behalf of the culture of building.
