Navigli canals
Milan


How Italy's financial city will change its face.

A plan to reopen Milan’s canals prepared by Milan’s Polytechnic University outlines a network stretching for 7.7 km. It’s a diagonal line that crosses the city and recreates the original routes of the canals as they were during the late 1800s (except for the Melchiorre Gioia stretch, which was closed much later, in the 1960s). The new infrastructure would not only embellish Milan with a navigable canal, but would also allow to connect the city with the Adda and Ticino rivers.

Economists Roberto Camagni and Flavio Boscacci of the Polytechnic University of Milan estimated that the project would cost €406 million. The study demonstrates that the city would gain important economic benefits from the expense, both in terms of returns coming from the construction work (jobs and productive activities), and on a broader scale.

The architects suggest that the project should take from 7 to 10 years to be completed, with periods of construction spread out over this estimated time, so as to limit the impact on public finances and on redirecting traffic.

The longest stretch (3.8 km) is that of the inner circle, which goes through some of the city’s historic sites, like Piazza Cavour. The study by the Polytechnic University foresees two possible solutions for this area, one of which calls for a small basin, that would hold a pond in the center of the square.

The time needed to sail on the canal section that goes from Cassina de’ Pomm to the Darsena is around 2 hours and 20 minutes. And another 20 minutes are required if traveling in the opposite direction (which is uphill, but overcome by a system of locks).
To avoid having to change the traffic circulation, the number of locks was increased. The project envisages a total of 10 locks: two are historic, two to be rebuilt and five newly built.

The timing for each lock mechanism varies between 7 and 10 minutes. And the functioning mechanism hasn’t changed from the historic locks, it’s the same designed centuries ago by Leonardo da Vinci.


The big environmental project will give back the historic identity of Milan. A challenge toward a more sustainable and smart city.

That's an open call for international investors to invest in the Navigli reopening in Milan. Due to the rethinking of the whole area, there'll be a revaluation of the area that will bring one billion euros of budget surplus...anyone interested?

Fund for Urban Development: Milan's new plan

The first trial of the Fund for Urban Development in collaboration with the European Investment Bank and so far adopted only in London will start in Milan. The Fund for Urban Development involves the collaboration between public and private entities to make investments in sustainable urban renewal. It is primarily aimed at “patient” capitalism, not interested in speculative or highly profitable investments, but in those profitable in the long term and of high social value.

The Fund - established by the Milan City Council in collaboration with the EIB (European Investment Bank) - is intended for the realization of renovation and conversion projects in abandoned or underused areas, social housing and energy efficiency improvements in buildings. The heart of the project is the close public-private alliance, which will be reflected in the governance of the fund. The Fund will start with a budget of €40 million, but the goal is to get to investments worth between €80 million and €100 million, said the City Councilor for the Budget Francesca Balzani, referring to the case of the London Green Fund, which has resources for £100 million.

The profits generated by the Fund will be reused to maintain the financial equilibrium of the Fund and fuel new investments. In the coming months, the City and the EIB will proceed with the mapping of the projects to be financed, finalize the structure of the Fund, and then identify the managing authority. The deputy mayor assured that within 10 or 12 months at most, the Fund should be operational.

The Municipality has already identified an initial package of projects in the city area, from the reopening of part of the Navigli (the Viarenna Basin), the rehabilitation of the former institute Marchiondi, up to the redevelopment of the Adriano district, part of the Bovisa and the Porto di Mare areas. In the future, new projects will be added. And the deputy mayor has not ruled out the possibility that the Fund may also contribute to the redevelopment of areas and properties outside the city limits.

Milan's former rail yards should get approval in July for conversion to parks and residences

The former state owned railways company Ferrovie dello Stato's rail yards are now the biggest challenge for Milan in the field of real estate. The rail yards are an area of 1.2 million square meters slated to be converted to parks and private residences, explained the City of Milan's municipal councilor for urban planning Ada Lucia De Cesaris.

“Our intention has always been to make it a building zone only for a quality project, and infrastructures,” she said. “The program agreement should be ready to be signed by summer. In San Cristoforo there will be a huge park, in Scalo Farini we will have to study a plan that relates to the context and that will include a portion of moderate rental housing. Here, 50% of the area is destined for public services. After the signature, Ferrovie dello Stato will decide whether to sell part of the areas or to launch tenders.”

As for the other projects active in the Milan area, De Cesaris said that “there are still major projects to close, such as Porta Vittoria, which remains a critical issue. Generally speaking, we can say that real estate has found the ground for recovery in this city, and many stakeholders have realized the importance of renovating existing buildings.”

'Library of Trees' public park
Milan | Zone 9


design: Inside Outside Studio, Jana Crepon, Carlotta Basoli, Agnieszka Zborowska, Mikel Orbegozo, Carmen Buitenhuis, Celin Baumann, Clair Arnikhof
status: U/C soon


The main idea of the competition design was to add a new type of park to the urban landscape of Milan: the Biblioteca degli Alberi, a new form of public park that exhibits a collection of different trees; a park that represents a modern version of the Botanic Garden.

The park – located between Stazione di Porta Garibaldi and Stazione Centrale – will be the beating heart between municipality and commercial offices, fashion and culture related buildings, vital public transport knots, busy streets and quiet residential areas such as the Quartiere Isola.


The surface appointed for the Biblioteca degli Alberi measures approximately 9 hectares and is divided in three zones: the largest zone lies between Via Melchiore Gioia, Via Giovanni Battista Pirelli and Via Gaetano de Castillia. The second zone is on the rooftop of the sunken parking lot between Via Melchiore Gioia and Via Tancredi. The third zone is the linear zone along Viale della Liberazione up to Piazza San Gioachimo.


The practical aims that are given for the park in the Giardini di Porta Nuova area are to CONNECT the surrounding buildings and areas with their varied characters and programs; and to SERVICE the surrounding professional and residential communities, with each their different daily routines, needs and backgrounds.


Only three simple tools to – on the one hand – resolve all technical, logistic and programmatic issues as requested; and – on the other hand – to create enough complexity for the ‘romantic’ garden effect that we envisioned. The three tools together led to a plan drawing that projected a strong yet flexible organization onto an otherwise chaotic and ever-changing environment. This concept of clarity and flexibility still proves to function up to this day.

Linear Paths that efficiently connect the different urban areas adjacent to the park while creating internal circuits for sports and happenings such as markets, shows and exhibits.

Irregular Fields, shaped by the web of paths, are designed as a series of ornamental and architectural gardens, meadows, lawns and small plaza’s for leisure, sports, education, meditation and cultural or commercial use.

Circular Forests form an exhibition of different trees, planted in circular formation. Each forest consists of one particular species that, together, create organized ‘interiors’ with vegetal roofs where people can spend time or where various cultural or commercial events can take place.


There are flower- herb- and shrub gardens, playfields, picnic areas, a maze and various topiaries, bamboo gardens and a natural pond with aquatic plants, water creatures and fish; there are agricultural fields, rose- and herb gardens, a scenting cut-flower garden and a dog garden.

Other fields are seeded with a mix of grasses and wild flowers to form ‘meadows’; or are covered with lawn – both suitable and easily transformed into fields for multiple forms of use These vegetal fields alternate with paved fields that form public squares of different size and shape.

Here and there, a water source refreshes the visitor and, at the north-east end of the park, one of the fields unfolds to become a wide wooden stairwell that leads down to the Stazione Garibaldi.

Post Expo 2015: Transform / Recycle / Reuse
Milan-Rho



The area is located to the N/W of Milan, one of the most dynamic and infrastructured urban regions of Italy and one of the most important in Europe, easily accessible from international airports, underground and high speed railway interchange. Arexpo S.p.A. has issued an international tender for the selection of the post-Expo project. The aim of the Masterplan is to enhance the material and intangible legacy of Expo through the re-use of the huge public investments already made here, in order to build the infrastructure system of the whole site, as a suitable context for the development of the future urban project.

The concept is to limit the resources necessary for the adaptation of the area in the post-Expo phase with a high-sustainability urban regeneration project. The Masterplan has a flexible and adaptable layout and will allow for an on-going process of comparison between the evolution of Expo.

The project seeks a high differentiation of uses and activities, giving priority to the establishment of high value-added services in spaces that vary in morphology, structure and size. This will allow the area to host a wide variety of solutions, which may make use of appropriate spaces and equipment for high quality living spaces and a provision of facilities and services in a recognizable and unique urban landscape.


A large theme park, more than just a wide green area, will be the heart of the new urban design plan, becoming the container of civic proposals for the metropolitan area and for the strengthening of the regional urban framework. This multifaceted theme park will be open to the public and will develop, as far as possible, a close alignment with the Expo them focused on culture, science, innovation, information and education.

KEY NUMBERS
Area involved: 1,1 mln sqm
Multi theme park area: +440,000 sqm
Buildable Surface: +479,000 sqm
Building permit and final deed: December 2016

WHAT TO BUILD?
Some ideas:
- University campus
- Centre for Research, Innovation & Practice
- European Start-up Valley
- Cultural/creativity areas dedicated to young talents and students

BabyLife Kindergarten
Milan | Zone 8


design: 02 Arch > winner of the international contest
area: 4,700 sqm
status: U/C soon


The new CityLife district is an important reference for contemporary architecture of global significance and a significant architecture for Milan. The designers were asked to identify a solution consistent and integrated with respect to the placement of the building and the architectural choices and composition.






They had to take into special consideration: the volumes and the architecture around it (the three skyscrapers, new homes and existing ones, the convention center); the design of the public park; the system of pedestrian and cycle paths and the main roads.

Azzano San Paolo Retail, Hotel and Convention Center
Azzano San Paolo | Milan metro area


design: Asymptote Architecture
status: U/C soon




Adjacent to the Orio Al Serio International Airport there in Azzano San Paolo, Asymptote has designed a mixed-use project that comprises of a new luxury shopping center, a new 300-room hotel, two midsized office towers, a mixed-use entertainment facility and a body augmentation health clinic.




The entire complex builds on the expansive exposure of the site from the vantage point of vehicles traveling by way of the adjacent autostrada as well as from the traffic generated by the many aircraft arriving and departing from the nearby Orio al Serio Airport.




The design concept for this complex sets out to create a new urban landscape by utilizing and incorporating a number of volumetric components in a unique compositional arrangement comprised of both buildings and open spaces. While viewed from the air or from a passing vehicle, the surface patterns and the modulated profiles of the various buildings are seen and experienced as a complete dynamic ensemble, at once a harmonious composition as well as a collection of discrete forms.




This new architectural language for large-scale commercial complexes is critical to the design intention where such a place need not be simply a collection of generic boxes and containers as is usually the case in this area. At grade level this strategy translates into a substantially more integrated relationship between interior and exterior spaces offering an enhanced experience for the visitors.
