AREXPO: A new green infrastructure for metropolitan Milan

Andrea Kuepfer

arexpo land

As officially announced yesterday during the press conference at Cascina Triulza, the Expo 2015 site will find new life thanks to the Urban Regeneration Masterplan developed by the consortium led by Lendlease, of which international landscape architecture studio LAND is a member.

The project proposal envisages the creation of a large 460,000-square-metre theme park, which is respectful of the original setting of the site yet innovative in its character of resilience, capable of generating wellbeing and quality in order to restore a balance between anthropic space and natural space, enhancing the area and increasing the sense of wellness of the people who live there, since - as Andreas Kipar states - “a society’s wellbeing is mirrored in the standards with which it creates and cares for its public spaces”.

Be the change you want to see

Step by step Milan is becoming the city that it wants to be in the future. With the project of Porta Nuova we’ve been working hard for 13 years, challenging ourselves with increasing urbanization, climate change and a new social mosaic. Our “learn by doing” approach brought us to a new standard for a connected and inclusive urban space dedicated to people and able to bring innovation: a green and social infrastructure.

Therefore, looking forward from this achievement, Gioia 22 doesn’t only give people new places, it also offers the right location to do the right thing: such as a little wood to read or think, a place to study, a cycle path or a promenade to have a walk, and social gatherings to meet people, to work or to learn something new.

ca corniani triennale

The purpose of the Competition is to conceive and execute three works of art that should consider the true nature of Ca’ Corniani, what it has represented in the past and what it will become in the future. 

Our best compliments to the artist Alberto Garutti, the winner of the international art competition for theThree Ca' Corniani Thresholds! His works speak to the stratified, complex history of the relationship between man, nature and agriculture, creating a new rural landscape.

Fall colors in Adda Mallero Park

Andrea Kuepfer

adda mallero

The park is near to the city of Sondrio, next to the confluence of the Mallero creek with the Adda river and has a surface of 15 hectars.
Till 2006 there was a working and storaging establishment, with a terrible view from the principal access to the city. The stop of that activity and the start of a urban transformation project made the redevelopment faster. Starting from the main features of the context and particulary from the waters that coast it, the ladscape project defines some concavities that finally recall the theme shore of the river. On that way dips that define particular spaces are formed, interesting views on the alpine context and on the park  itself. The realization of the park is the result of the cooperation between the city of Sondrio and the initiative “Dieci Grandi Foreste di Pianura” promoted and financed by the Regione Lombardia-Direzione Generale Agricoltura and managed by the Provincia di Sondrio-Assessorato all’Agricoltura, this cooperation brought to a 40 hectars forest. The Adda Mallero park is an important part of it. They used only low environmental impact materials and technic valuations like the forestation and the phytoremediation for a new lake system.

Olona Springs: the beginning of a new waterscape

Andrea Kuepfer

Starting from Sunday there is a new place for the community in close proximity to the Olona Springs,  one of the most important Lombard watercourse that arrives in the heart of Milan. In order to give a new identity, we worked with nature-based solutions obtaining ecological, economic and social benefits. So, a portion of forgotten landscape is returned to the society, combining hydraulic functionality and naturalistic and fruitive purposes using best integrated details. Sensibility and force match with this project, careful in respecting nature, focused on historic heritage, making space for people.

Chicago / Milan Sister Cities

RHAM

Yestarday Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala convened at Fondazione Catella in Milan to discuss the state of urban design and innovation in both cities and also the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial.

We are delighted to find again in their vision our mission: rethinking our cities in a more sustainable way, to become a more inclusive community sharing the experince of public spaces. We trust in a future city where more density and more permeability will give identity and quality to everybody. In our opinion, this happens when a green infrastructure becomes a social infrastructure.

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.
