CIDADA | Marco Casagrande
Cidada is a project by Marco Casagrande in a highly industrialized area of Taipei, China. This bamboo structure is placed in the middle of a park between roads and highways. It’s a kind of oasis, where visitors can relax and forget the stress of modern life. Bent bamboo frames were built slowly, weaving like a big basket that emerges from a base of gravel, dirt and rocks. At the base is vegetation planted which gradually rises and weaving its way through the bamboo grid. The grid has skylights to allow the entry of air and giving an insight into the moon at night, while during the day there is a magic atmosphere created by shadows and sunlight.
