'Falck' ex-steel factory in Sesto S. Giovanni, Milan - international competition
[first prize]


client: ASMM
program: public space
date: 1999



The concept of the park has always been a way to simultaneously evaluate the city and the natural environment. The restructuring process relies on a strategy of sharing spaces. A new space fragmentation leads to new dimensions that are more flexible and adaptable over time. Structure is chosen as the framework to guide the conversion process. The size and direction of the network is connected  to the way the site drainage is achieved : a drainage system oriented along the direction of the water and following the main direction of the plain north of Milan.
S-parkling is a park whose spine is made up of industrial roads that have been shaped by the movement of industrial machinery . S-parkling is then one of the ecologies of the project, together with the porous city , the islands of high technology and ecological linkage of the Lambro river where multiple programs work together. S-parkling won the 1999  first prize in the international competition.
