Another planned stadium :)

Cagliari Arena (24,000 seats - expandable to 30,000)
Cagliari, Sardinia
Design Sportium, Progetto CMR, Manica Architecture

The old Stadio Sant'Elia, once hosting several matches at the 1990 World Cup, doesn't offer sufficient requirements today and it is scheduled to be demolished. The site will host a new state-of-art stadium. Project was chosen through an international archtitectural competition.

The concept design was inspired by the words of Italian novelist Grazia Deledda, born in northern Sardinia, in which she described the fundamental elements that identify Cagliari and her region: the sea, the stone, the cliffs and the Mediterranean scrub. The stadium was designed for the fans to promote the best view of the game and to create a wall effect that can intimidate the opposing team. However, football is not the only great protagonist: the new stadium will also include large, complementary and multi-functional spaces, with services ranging from hospitality and entertainment to retail and dining, allowing the stadium to be used and lived all the year.

Morphologically integrated with the surrounding environment, the complex constantly recalls Cagliari's chromatic and material peculiarities. The stadium sits on a paved square which recalls the colors of Cagliari's coast and Sardinian cliffs. The square rises from the sea inward, following the natural lines of the territory, and is transformed into a garden that characterizes the raised rear part, which covers the underlying complementary spaces with the typical Mediterranean vegetation and areas equipped with the everyday sports practice. The garden leads to a path designed along the outer part of the arena, designed as a real outdoor museum that will allow the viewing of art exhibitions accessible to all. The path leads to the top of the complex, where visitors can relax in the pool and contemplate the vast surrounding panorama. With specific reference to hospitality, it is also planned the construction of a hotel within the stadium, with 72 rooms overlooking the playing field, the sea and the city of Cagliari.

Even the material used for the external façade reflects the characteristics of the Cagliari stone and also has the particularity of having a treatment that makes it self-cleaning and able to absorb the smog. A building therefore, whose modern and highly sustainable design is also capable of 'remaining in memory' and lasting over time. The plant has also been designed to be fully compliant with the requirements set by UEFA for such facilities and in full compliance with current legislation in terms of active and passive safety. Finally, the stadium was designed according to the most efficient criteria of modularity, with the aim of making it expandable from 24,000 current seats to 30,000, therefore suitable for participation in future and desired events and international championships.

Apple Piazza Liberty | Milan


Apple today premiered this week's opening of Apple Piazza Liberty in the center of Milan. Set to open its doors on Thursday, the retail location features a dramatic glass fountain that serves as the entrance to the store and a backdrop to the large outdoor amphitheater.

The piazza, clad in Beola Grigia, a stone used throughout Milan, will be open to the public 24 hours a day and will host special events year-round amongst 14 Gleditsia Sunburst trees planted in the area.


"There's no better expression of our vision for Apple stores serving as modern-day gathering places than Apple Piazza Liberty," said Angela Ahrendts, Apple's senior vice president of Retail. "In a city with such rich history of art, entertainment and creativity, it's an honor to establish a space where anyone can be inspired to learn, create and connect with their neighbors."


"To work within one of Italy's historic piazzas is both a great responsibility and wonderful challenge," said Jony Ive, Apple's chief design officer. "We combined two fundamental elements of the Italian piazza — water and stone — adding a glass portal that creates a multi-sensory experience as visitors enter the store through a cascading fountain that seems to envelop them."

The store will employ 230 staff, many of whom have come to Milan from Apple stores around the world, according to Apple.

Milano2030: strategies and objectives behind the new PGT Territorial Plan
Municipality of Milan: Milano 2030 documents
press: repubblica.it | ansa.it | milanotoday.it

By 2030, Milan will be a city increasingly connected to its metropolitan area as well as the globe. At the same time, it will be a city with a local focus, with special attention given to the main squares and transport nodes that are central to the expected growing youth population and the city's middle class. The city will be even more innovative and inclusive. A green and resilient Milan will require the same quality of urban space for the city center as for the suburbs; neighborhoods characterized by a strong local identity. By overcoming the physical, social, economic distances between the city and its periphery, growth will be inclusive, extended to all neighborhoods, and will engender improved quality of life for all residents.


The new Plan provides strategic objectives and measurable indicators. Keep reading to learn more about Milano 2030.

1. Connecting Milan, the metropolitan area and the world
The core of a wide metropolitan area, Milan aims to increase accessibility through massive investments in public transport: the construction of the new M4 metro line, the extension of other metro lines beyond the city boundaries (eg. M5 extension towards Monza and Settimo), and the strengthening of the railway belt, in addition to the development of high speed trains and of the regional railway service.


Milan expects the evolution of the urban form to go hand in hand with the advancement of public transport, focusing on the relationship between future development and mobility. Thanks to a model that integrates built densification and regeneration of public space, transit hubs -- which currently attract millions of people daily -- are expected to become major metropolitan spots. This is underpinned by the logic of urban growth that clusters residents within a short distance from a train or metro stop, to reduce dependency on private mobility.


2. An attractive and inclusive city of opportunity
Milan's youth population is expected to increase by 2030. It is critical that new incentives open the way for the "Fourth Economy" to bring innovative production back to the urban core -- offering new job opportunities to Milan's youth as well as to residents from all social classes, ages, and backgrounds.

Six areas in Milan's periphery, accessible to all and placed on strategic axes, will additionally be developed with the intent of attracting international investment and serving as centers of economic opportunity. These outposts could be used for a range of purposes: from institutional and administrative offices, to structures to support cultural production, hospital facilities, classrooms and university services, incubation spaces for startups, large sports facilities, or depots for sustainable mobility.


3. A green, livable, resilient city
Sustainability and resilience are at the center of the vision for future Milan. Compared to current regulations, the new city plan provides for the reduction of land consumption by 4% -- made possible by a unique approach corralling over 3 million sqm previously zoned for agricultural use or new constructions. The Milan 2030 strategy envisions the expansion of the Southern Park by 1,5 million sqm; the creation of a consolidated Metropolitan Park, connecting all existing parks (including Northern and Southern Park), as well as the city's fragmented network of public and private spaces, into ecological corridors. Overall, the city of 2030 will boast 20 new urban larger parks/gardens.


The redevelopment of Milan's railyards will open up an additional 65 hectares of green space, which will not only house the city's third largest park at Scalo Farini, but will also be the structure of "Green Track" -- a new ecological system that is developing along the railway, partially financed by the EU Clever Cities project. Milano 2030 also include a forestation plan which foresees a considerable increase of trees number in the metropolitan area.


Also important to Milan's resilience work is the new city plan’s increase in environmental performance standards required for existing and newly constructed buildings, through the Article 10 of the Implementation Rules; the new standards demand higher energy efficiency, re-naturalization and de-pavement (including green roofs), and the certification of CO2 reduction.


4. 88 neighborhoods
Milan 2030 outlines several initiatives for overcoming barriers between the inner and outer city. Selective densification is the principle applied to the regeneration of main squares located between the city center and the periphery. These squares currently function as traffic hubs and as gaps in walkability; in gaining a new identity, they will be able to stimulate investment and improve the city’s attractiveness and livability. The redevelopment of 7 disused railyards along the railway belt as well as a project for reopening the Navigli, the historical water channels of Milan, will additionally help forge a unified identity for the 88 neighborhoods.


Milan's regeneration, far from being solely focused on the changing skyline, already embraces public space as a fundamental common good. Interventions on public squares both large and small are being undertaken with the aim of strengthening local neighborhood identities, favoring walkability, increasing green space, and supporting local shops and tourism. They favor safety, cohesion, and social inclusion, building off of widespread services which are designed in particular for young people, the elderly, and the most fragile sections of the population.


5. A city that regenerates
Diffuse regeneration of the urban fabric will be encouraged in specific areas of Milan. Where levers and incentives can be utilized, the city expects them to stimulate the renovation of degraded lots -- thus increasing urban quality, enhancing the functional mix and services, and overall facilitating the economic, social, and cultural development of the city’s most vulnerable sectors. The main target of regeneration is the struggle against vacant areas and abandoned buildings.


To reactivate disused public areas and create new opportunities, firstly, Milan has taken part in the Reinventing Cities initiative promoted by the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group. The city launched an international competition for the regeneration of 5 sites under high sustainability standards, especially in terms of carbon neutrality. Moreover, the plan puts forth obligations for the private sector to either demolish abandoned buildings or to present a recovery project, under penalty of losing the existing building rights. Finally, the city's Peripheries Plan has paved the way for renovating and assigning 3,000 vacant public housing units by 2021.​

New San Siro Stadium
Milan

POPULOUS
"The Cathedral of Football"


The "Cathedral of Football" will be the greatest stadium in Europe, its bespoke seating bowl will bring fans closer to the action than ever before and will create an unforgettable atmosphere. The "Cathedral" will become a global icon — providing a unique home for the legendary clubs of AC Milan and FC Inter Milan. This is not a generic stadium that could be found elsewhere, it is a stadium that draws inspiration from two of Milano's most iconic buildings; the Duomo and the Galleria. It is a stadium of Milano and for Milano, set in the most sustainable sports and entertainment district in Europe. It is a new icon for Milano.






























PROGETTO CMR-MANICA
"Rings of Milano"


Two iconic rings, interlocked and set apart in perfect balance, send the powerful message that the Milanese people are the true link to preserving the legacy and future of football in the district of San Siro. The stadium design tells the story of how two clubs, forever in opposition, are united in their cause to preserve one of Milano’s most storied traditions. The façade of the stadium captures the faces of more than 16,000 fans, and becomes a living element of the building’s architecture and a true reflection of its city. The historic location is reimagined and transformed into a beautiful park-like destination for all of Milano to enjoy. With a design this bold, unique, and unlike any other in the world, The "Rings of Milano" is the most fitting home for these two world-class teams in Milano.
