M1&M2 landscape infrastructure
| Mauritius

 

Shifting perspective: from simply Greening and Embellishment to enhancement of landscape identities. The M1/M2 landscape renewal is an incredible occasion for Mauritius to define a trend in terms of landscape interventions. The motorway can be turned into a vibrant infrastructure able to play different roles while reconnecting ecologies and landscapes. Mauritius showcase many different ecosystems and thus the motorways can follow and enhance such variety. The motorway can become a driver for local and global development. In our vision it will be transformed in a continuous monument that enhance cultural and natural diversity, in the form of a continuous 76-kilometres botanical garden.
