Smart cities, cities of the future

Andrea Kuepfer

Yesterday at the Deutsch-Italienischen Handelskammer in Milan we presented our experiences in the 3 top Italian smart cities: Bologna, Genoa and Turin. From grey to green, the LAND expertise in territorial transformation also works in Germany, such as in Essen, European Green Capital 2017. We talked about how the city is changed after this important goal and what we imagine for its future, especially in the tourism sector.

Today we are invited at the Senato della Repubblica in occasion of the publication of the 50th report on the Social Situation of the Country to talk about our international experience in strategic urban development. We need new paradigm discovering again our roots and territory as catalysts of ideas for the future community. In our opinion it is important for the big distribution aspiring to quality not only to repair past inattentions, but also to bring new concepts and innovation to development of territories. Starting from green proposals, our LAND projects aim to improve social infrastructure trough environmental quality.

Today, in occasion of the Milano ArchWeek, we had the opportunity to go deeper in this way of thinking art as acupuncture of the landscape during the lecture “Non solo architettura” with Andreas Kipar and Thomas Schönauer. The interesting dialogue started 6 years ago between the architect and the artist goes on an increasingly challenging way!

INTERNATIONAL ART COMPETITION FOR 3 THRESHOLDS: ART AS ACUPUNCTURE OF THE LANDSCAPE

“Artists are like chinese doctors. They search for the energy spots, interconnect them in order to generate even higher energy. Their sculptural interventions become acupuncture of the landscape.”

Today the artist Thomas Schönauer enlightened us with his words about the deep relationship between art and landscape during the presentation of our  landscape enhancement project for Ca' Corniani, Genagricola’s estate.

Finally after 2 years of work we inaugurated the green wall located at the entrance to Krombach, which will be greened with moss and will bind the accumulating fine dust. Consequently the wall will have the same purifying effect of 4000 trees!  We wonder how the noise barrier will evolve and we want to thank all the participants at the opening party!

Airolo, after 100 years... Back to the future!

Andrea Kuepfer

Airolo is a historic hub in the heart of the region of Gottardo, where the almost uncontaminated Bedretto Valley meets the Leventina Valley. During the years this area was fragmented by different linear infrastructures such as the railway, the  A2 motorway, the canalization of Ticino River or the construction of the Airolo basin. Therefore the connection between the two sides of the valley is very hard. The entire planning concept for the redevelopment of the Airolo valley offers the ideal vision of a restored district where the fragmentation produced by infrastructures is replaced by a vast naturalistic and leisure zone. Airolo can emerge from its infrastructural cage and revalue its landscape trough airy, flat green-fields, new woodland areas, functional and sport fields, an accessible and restored riverbank.

SEVESO RIVER PARK

Con grande piacere abbiamo partecipato al dibattito del 12 aprile a Cesano Maderno organizzato dal sindaco, nonché presidente della Provincia di Monza e Brianza, in cui abbiamo avuto la possibilità di presentare alla comunità gli esiti dello studio per il masterplan paesaggistico-ambientale del fiume Seveso svolto per BrianzAcque e CAP Holding. Riteniamo sia fondamentale confrontarsi con le istituzioni e i cittadini all'inizio di questo processo di riavvicinamento e rivalutazione dei nostri fiumi. Ora è necessario procedere con le applicazioni sul territorio per sfruttare al meglio le sinergie presenti in questa sfida di recupero dei nostri ecosistemi.

Qui il comunicato stampa della presentazione.

Sabato 1 aprile apre al pubblico il primo tassello di oltre ottomila metri quadri del Parco Biblioteca degli Alberi. Il parco fa parte del masterplan Porta Nuova, una delle più importanti trasformazioni urbane a livello europeo della quale lo studio di architettura del paesaggio LAND ha progettato gli spazi aperti, a favore della permeabilità urbana attraverso una maggiore densità e per la mediazione tra la scala della città e la scala della persona. “LAND continua ad impegnarsi a lavorare sugli spazi aperti milanesi, dove sempre più abbiamo il desiderio di indirizzare il nostro pensiero progettuale dalla realizzazione di green infrastructure alla conformazione di social infrastructure”, commenta Andreas Kipar, architetto paesaggista e fondatore dello studio LAND.
