Olbia Social Centre Project Brief

The layout follows the notion of a curved road with built elements on both sides to contain bookstores, take-away food shops, student clubs, a video shop, a cinema, and a museum, and leading to a 1'200 seat amphitheatre. A water channel flows along the road and links two wider spaces, between which stands a clock-tower.
