The project comes from the request of a new railway station in Mendrisio, according to the new regional infrastructure plan. Infrastructure is a link in one direction but in the other one can be a deep cut in the urban texture. The purpose is to use the implementation of a big infrastructure as an oppurtunity to make a regional pianification. Town and infrastructure scale are linked through two strong heads (the railway station and the amdistrative centre +highway link). The directional axis for pedestrian and cars link the two towns. A new urban texture, adapted to territory, improve density and makes the plan unitary.
