SCALO FARINI, MILAN, ITALY, 2013



 
 

The area at Scalo Farinin represent a real challange for the future of Milano, because of its central position and because strictly connected with the metropolitan transportation railway network.
The program is focused on the creation of a multifunction environment that forsees: housing, commercial, public and cultural facilities,
all facing the new “Farini Central Park” of Milano.
The masterplan is based on the following determinant issues: the central park must have the central role in the new design of the area, and it will be marked by the presence of suspended pedestrian bridges able to connect the part of the area, separated by the railway; along north-eastern boundary of the park, a
long “rambla” with plaisure and cultural facilities and gardens represents the urban heart of the plan.
For housing, the projects forsees three main
typologies. Along the “rambla”, four residential skyscrapers, that mark, as giant classical-expressionistic columns, the edge of the park; terrace housing with roof gardens near Villa Simonetta; sinous “crescents”, that, through the adoption of pilotis allow the gardens to flows in continuity with the building. Starting from the XVth century Villa Simonetta, now Academy of Contemporary Music, the masterplan creates a linear park -“un giardino all’italiana”- that, overpassing the railway, reaches the central plaza, at the beginning of the “rambla”, conceived as new cultural and urban center of Milano.
