Turin, former capital of the Kingdom of Italy and a major industrial and economic city in northern Italy, will host the IFLA - the world congress of the International Federation of Landscape Architects - for the first time ever, from 20th to 22nd April. ALL+ is to take part as the congress's official sponsor, presenting its new products for 2016.
Architects from all over the world will meet up in Turin from 20th to 22nd April and discuss how to redevelop urban areas and landscapes. This year's edition of the IFLA is called "Tasting The Landscape": participants will be asked to interpret the landscape from a sensory and emotional perspective in order to see and appreciate landscape architecture as a tool that contributes towards quality, towards well-being and towards enhancing the value of resources in urban areas.
ALL+, with its collections of outdoor furniture entirely made in aluminium, will be attending this major event with a dual scope. It will be presenting its new versions of benches and gazebos intended for use in public and urban settings in its booth within the congress area. Furthermore, as official supplier of the urban furniture for the project, it will be one of the leading players at Peccei Park in Turin, a prime example of outstanding urban redevelopment, which the architects will be visiting as part of the congress scheduled events.
Peccei Park, which was inaugurated in May 2015 and named after the former Fiat executive, Aurelio Peccei, is an extensive green area situated in the former Spina 4 industrial area of Turin, which has been object of controversy for years and perpetually condemned to neglect and to the fight against urban and human decay. The area has been tempered and now offers over 27,000 square metres of greenery, over 400 trees, as well as playgrounds and charming artistic trails. The park is an outstanding example of environmental sustainability: indeed, the construction site for the realization of the park worked with zero impact thanks to the planting of new trees; furthermore, the photovoltaic system ensures the park can boast energy independence. Last but not least, the furniture supplied by ALL+ (91 benches and 11 tables from its Loco collection) is made of aluminium, which is an eco-compatible material and, in this case, sourced from recycled material. For these reasons, last year the park won the Città Verde (Green City) award assigned by the Milan Expo. On the occasion of the IFLA, ALL+ will be presenting the new versions of its Filo and Loco benches as well as the new gazebo WZone.
