MILAN | Science - Knowledge - Innovation Park | App

Science, Knowledge, Innovation Park
Milan | Italy



The former site of universal exposition Expo Milano 2015 will be transformed into a "Science, Knowledge and Innovation Park" with the aim of creating a place open to the world that can promote territorial excellences, add value to the investments already sustained and to the Expo legacy.


Former site of Expo Milano 2015

The Science, Knowledge and Innovation Park will be a hub of global excellence for companies, scientists and researchers operating in the fields of Life Sciences, Healthcare, Biotech, Pharma, Agri-food, Nutrition, Data Science and Big Data. The park will also host the Human Technopole, the "Science for Life" campus of Statal University of Milan, the IRCSS Treatment and Research Healthcare center, the Social Innovation Hub-Lab.

The Science, Knowledge and Innovation Park will have outstanding architectural features, able to attract investment and generate economic benefits throughout the country with scientific, recreational, cultural, sports, residential, productive and tertiary functions.

By 2025, the project will be regarded as one of the greatest examples of successful delivery of a legacy promise after a major public event.


The challenge of this plan is to:

The overall area is located north-west of the city centre of Milan. The site is easily accessible from greater Milan, its primary densely-populated catchment area, from Northern part of Italy and Europe. Over 9 million residents live within 60 minutes drive from the area. The site is located close to the busy Linate and Malpensa Airports, and the Milan Exhibition Centre, which is the largest trade fair facility in Europe.


Arexpo -the society which owns and manages the former site of Expo Milano 2015- has officially received two binding offers from LendLease Group and Stam Europe, who are leaders of two respective consortia. The public tender concerned the designing of the masterplan, costruction and a concession for the management of the area, which included the granting of a surface right for a period of maximum 99 years.

Consortium 1
Stam Europe, Macquarie Group Limited, Vitali SpA, Condotte Costruzioni, HOK Architects, Progetto CMR, Mobility in chain, Ambiente Italia.

Consortium 2
LendLease Group, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Carlo Ratti Associati, Land Italia, Icom.


A committee, chaired by professor Giovanni Azzone, president of Arexpo, Rector of Polytechnic of Milan from 2010 to 2016, was immediately set up to evaluate the eligibility of bids. The other members are: Andrea Sironi, full professor of Banking and Finance at Bocconi University, where he has been Rector from 2012 to 2016 and chairman of Italian Stock Exchange; Barbara Alemanni, full professor full professor of Banking and Finance at University of Genoa and Bocconi University; Manuela Grecchi, Vice Rector For Lecco campus of Polytechnic of Milan and full professor of Building Architecture; Ilaria Valente, Dean of School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering of Polytechnic of Milan and full professor in Architectural and Urban Design.

The committee will independently carry out the evaluation of the two bids and will communicate the outcomes to Arexpo at completion of its activity.

"A major step towards the transformation of the Arexpo area into one of largest scientific and technology parks in the world has been achieved" Bonomi, CEO of Arexpo said. "The selected private operator will not only support Arexpo in crafting the masterplan, but will also take developer responsibility therefore ensuring the actual transformation of the site".

The Australian group LendLease won the public tender for the conversion of former site Expo Milano 2015 into a Science, Knowledge and Innovation Park of global excellence. The masterplan is conceived by Carlo Ratti Associati, Land Italia, Icom.

In detail, Carlo Ratti Associati is an international design and innovation office based in Torino, Italy, with branches in New York and London. Drawing on Carlo Ratti's research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Senseable City Lab, the office is currently involved in many projects across the globe, embracing every scale of intervention. The work of the practice merges design with cutting-edge digital technologies, so as to contribute to the creation of an architecture "that senses and responds". The studio investigates the ways in which new technologies, including digital sensors and portable devices, are changing both the built environment and everyday life.

The buildings hosting four faculties (Agricultural and Food Sciences, Science and Technology, Drug Sciences, Medicine and Surgery) will be recognizable through an unique architectural style. Each building will be accessible, with large windows, porches and covered spaces. All the buildings have to be built considering the enviromental impact and energy efficency.

It is also necessary to strenght the connections with the city center: train network, subway, smart mobility systems will serve the new campus.

"Sciences for Life" Campus:
Core functions
Departmental spaces (studios and offices, departmental laboratories, temporary research-scape , temporary research focus team, networking / socializing corridor); Learning spaces (classrooms, offices, informal learning corridor); Laboratories; Macro-scientific platform; Library; Green areas / Relax areas / Agorà
Other functions
Multi-purpose training centre; Congress Centre; Startup and co-working areas; Sports plants (including football/rugby field, swimming pool, running track, gyms, etc); Student Residences with services; Guesthouse with services; Cafeterias; Food / Commercial / Leisure areas; First medical aid points; Nursery school; Areas for events; Parkings for professors, students and guests; Hotel (?).

Masterplan


International design and innovation office Carlo Ratti Associati (CRA), together with Australian real estate group Lendlease, has won the international competition for over 1 million square meter master plan to reimagine the former site of Milan World Expo 2015. The winning team's vision of a theme Park for Science, Knowledge and Technology was selected by Arexpo, the public company that owns the site situated in the northwest section of Italy's cultural and financial capital.


The master plan for Milan will establish a living laboratory featuring offices and research centers, universities faculties, facilities, residences and cultural spaces, areas for urban agriculture as well as the world’s first neighborhood planned for self-driving or autonomous mobility. The plan aims to set new standards for urban transformation processes, creating a verdant neighborhood, rich in public life, where innovation is implemented according to an open-source approach - as buildings can be reconfigured and change their function over time according to people's needs.


"Since cities emerged ten thousand years ago, they have served as civilization's most powerful engine of innovation. Innovation is also at the core of our master plan, by which the former site of Milan World Expo will become a place where to experiment new ways of working, doing research, inhabiting spaces, enjoying life, and getting around - a garden city shaped by the evolving needs of its inhabitants. At CRA, we are thrilled to be involved in the creation of this living lab on tomorrow's Milan" said Carlo Ratti, founding partner of CRA and Professor of the Practice of Urban Technologies at MIT in Boston.

The following features are among the plan’s most distinctive aspects:
ONE-MILE LONG LINEAR PARK: The park draws on the World Expo 2015's landmark, the Decumanus – the east-west road recalling the traditional axes of Roman cities. In the new neighborhood, the Decumanus, previously covered in asphalt, is converted into a one-mile long linear park, one of the longest in Europe, which becomes the social center of the neighborhood.

A CITY FOR SELF-DRIVING VEHICLES: The project's pioneering spirit extends to the field of mobility. The area's streets and roads, starting from the Decumanus, will, over time, become accessible to self-driving vehicles exclusively, in a move that anticipates the widespread changes brought about by autonomous cars. The result will be an increasingly shared approach to transportation, with fewer vehicles needed to satisfy the community's mobility demands, and with positive consequences expected in terms of less traffic, improved environmental quality, and new business opportunities.

THE COMMON GROUND: Following the principle that much of a city's health comes from the vibrancy of its public space, the project proposes a Common Ground - a two-floor high space all across the master plan - animated by a lively mix of plazas, pedestrian areas, shared vegetable gardens, laboratories and retail facilities. People can seamlessly move between public and private spaces or open and secluded areas.

"Building on the heritage of the 2015 World Expo, we set forth to explore social, urban and technological innovation. The master plan will create a city that is both a European scientific hub and a community-oriented neighborhood, fostering economic growth and social progress in Milan and in its metropolitan area" said Antonio Atripaldi, project lead at CRA.

Palazzo Italia and Tree of Life.


Palazzo Italia
Palazzo Italia was also the winner of the 2016 Excellence in Concrete Construction Awards by American Concrete Institute (ACI). The award was given to a project that demonstrates excellence in concrete innovation and technology.


Designed by Italian architecture firm Nemesi&Partners, Palazzo Italia envisages a complex structure whose exterior and some interior spaces recall the shapes of branches in a thick forest. The entire outdoor surface and part of the interiors consist of i.active BIODYNAMIC cement panels, obtained using Styl-Comp technology from the new material developed at i.lab, the heart of Italcementi's research and innovation. The "bio" component is given by the product's photocatalytic properties, originating from the active ingredient TX Active, patented by Italcementi. In direct sunlight, the active principle contained in the material "captures" certain pollutants present in the air and converts them into inert salts, helping to purify the atmosphere from smog. The "dynamic" component is a specific characteristic of the new material, whose particular fluidity allows the creation of complex shapes like those found in the Palazzo Italia panels.


Tree of Life
The hi-tech tree was built in the middle of Lake Arena. Its design was inspired by Rome's Piazza del Campidoglio (designed by Michelangelo Buonarroti). The Tree bears the fruit of Italy's breeding-ground, lifts it up in its foliage and spread it to the whole world as a symbol of dialogue and sharing. The Tree is also an interactive show, made of music, lights, colours and key-words, and is therefore always in transition.




Other national pavilions have been relocated or dismantled.
