Why waste space when you can do this?

Why waste space when you can do this?

A region of southern Italy is currently calling for sustainable ideas on how to renovate or reuse a stretch of the Salerno-Reggio Calabria highway, located between Sicily and Bagnara, with a focus on implementing a renewable energy into the infrastructure. The old highway will be decommissioned and a new highway is set to be built nearby. Currently the jury is still in deliberation and a winner has yet to be decided for the Solar Park South , but being the sleuths that we are, we came across this fascinating proposal for a parasitic city set to take root on the foundations of the highway's bridges . Although the proposal by Ja Studio Inc called 'Slow Uprising' doesn't actually meet the requirements of the competition, we still love the idea of buildings sprouting on a bridge.
