RELATIONSHIP AND REACTION

Friday, February 17th, 2012

094

A research that explores the ability of different parts of cities to react to change related to the creation of large-scale services. The research takes on and analyses the relationship between the space in the city and the socio-economical conditions of those who live within some of Milan’s neighbourhoods. This research is based on the analysis and cataloguing of the neighbourhoods of the city that was dealt with in the Government’s Plan of the Territory of Milan and can thus be taken as a project and planning system of services at local level. The research is lead by Nicola Russi with Andrea Matteo Azzolini within the workgroup coordinated by Cesare Macchi Cassia in the 2009 Workshop on Railway Yards organized by the Faculty of Civil Architecture of the Politecnico di Milano, and featured in the book “Gli Spazi della Povertà (Poverty’s Spaces)” by Enrica Chiappero-Martinetti, Stefano Moroni, Giampaolo Nuvolati. Editor: Bruno Mondadori Editore.

In 2008 and 2009 Nicola Russi worked for the City of Milan as a consultant for the PGT’s local projects.

The new general master plan for Milan has been designed by a team of architects and urban planners. Our urban design strategy has been primarily applied the development of the city through projects at a local scale. The upshot was a map in which zones are no longer delineated according to administrative borders but rather on the basis of social and cultural identity patterns. These areas have been called Local Identity Nuclei (LIN), a new city unit today in use in all the city planning offices.



COMO GIARDINO MONDO

como3

Place / Como, Italy
Year / 2009
Type / Competition by invitation – SECOND PRIZE
Status / Completed

The world famous Como waterfront has been designed as a new contemporary garden, an opportunity for citizens to experience nature from an aesthetic and emotional point of view.
From the city, our eyes are free to roam until the horizon, following the curves of the garden’s elements. A rhythm set by the progressive use of materials, measures, and shapes that are different one from the other, and which distinguishes both the architectural and the garden’s projects, bringing that complexity typical of a mansion’s garden to the scale of a whole city.
