Zighizaghi Urban Garden in Favara

Favarag Landscape Design, Italy – Design by OFL Architecture

Zighizaghi Urban Garden

Design: OFL Architecture

Location: Favara, Sicily, Italy

Zighizaghi

Zighizaghi is a multi-sensorial urban garden created by OFL Architecture that stems from a collaboration with the client Milia Arredamenti and Farm Cultural Park.

Zighizaghi

The project springs from the need to create a welcoming place for the citizens of Favara while simultaneously donating to the city an innovative public space shaped from the perfect combination of wood and vegetation.

Zighizaghi

Milia’s desire to express its link with the field of biology has served as the genesis for the project, which is inspired by shapes that bees are able to replicate: hexagons.

Zighizaghi

Zighizaghi

The project consists of two levels: the horizontal (the floor) and the vertical (the lighting systems).

Zighizaghi

The horizontal level is intended as an aggregation of wooden elements made of phenolic plywood and knots of Okoumè, and is designed to assume different configurations thanks to the modularity and flexibility of its geometry.

Zighizaghi

The vertical level, on the other hand, is composed of six fourteen-sided red prisms, designated Super Pods, made up of a luminous body and a loudspeaker. These three-dimensional elements, created as a tribute to “Pfff” (the inflatable pavilion made by Citivision and Farm Cultural Park), are now used with the aim of “contaminating” the city’s outskirts through art and architecture.

Zighizaghi

Thanks to its interactive character, Zighizaghi transforms its external space into a dynamic environment where music acts as a vehicle between nature and visitors.

Zighizaghi

Social technologies, architecture, and vegetation turn Zighizaghi into an intimate and regenerative setting that is equipped with an automatic irrigation system and Mediterranean plants specifically selected to fit with the environmental context.
