Milano is the largest Italian metropolis. Despite the economic uncertainties of the last decades, it remains a city in constant transformation and in close competition with other European capitals.
As for the latter, the future urban development of Milan – its ability to renew itself and to attract new talents – will dramatically affect its first periphery, where former industrial areas have been reconverting into creative districts.
Within this context the design proposal aims – with new enthusiasm – to provide bold and efficient solutions to the challenges set out by the competition brief. The project is based on three key elements: the production of a new public space; the balance between formal specificity and functional flexibility; high energy performances.
