May 28: Vnà 2
I thoroughly explored Vnà. It's small enough to walk just about every street in a short time.
A divergence of roads and materials.
Whoo! Quite a workout up here.
Not too shabby of a view.
A curious pavement transition,
and beyond that a very pleasantly enclosed street space.
A rather artistic composition of grate and covers. "Giesserei" means foundry.
The solidity of the walls and the curve of the street makes for such a great feel to the space. Camillo Sitte would have loved this spot.
Another lovely enclosed space. The perspective in the lower left is kind of confusing.
This appears to be Vnà's central square, given the variety of signage.
An unusual (for the Engadin) little saltbox, just hangin' back.
This is what's known in urban design as a "hamster slide."
Garden, parking, roofs, and valley oh and a Blockbau birdhouse omg that's adorable
Are these ducts hay vacuums? I think that must be it. This one is fighting with the adjacent gutter for space between the buildings.
A sophisticated assemblage of retaining walls and inn.
Another hamster slide.
This fountain was having its 100th birthday party with a car, a hose, and a littered bottle.
Welp, guess that's that. (The road actually continues up La Brancla past this turnaround, it just dips out of view for a sec.)
Now this looks like a pretty good avalanche resistor.
I walked up the western road a short distance; here an upper view thence of Vnà and the Engadin beyond.
A curious little plot before some subtle terraces.
