The Mura River once meandered near Radgona, then it was regulated and strengthened by embankments, but it flooded even more. Finally, they built an anti-flood wall, which now had to be rebuilt (climate changes, etc.). The tender was awarded to a regional company that invited us to participate (according to the yellow book). The story began about the prosaic superstructure of the existing wall (by approx. 50 cm), which would further separate the city from its forgotten river.
We architects strove, sandwiched between the state and the contractor, to choose a high-quality public urban space from a bare infrastructure project for the local community (the city of GR) from a 750 m long degraded area. We managed to arrange a promenade (on the city side and partly on the water side) with rest areas, access to the river, lookouts, an amphitheater and a children's playground, an entrance information pavilion ("portal" to the area), uncovered boundary stones that became "historical" sculptures.
