The green spaces design originates from reading the historical and contemporary landscape typologies, letting its traces influence the project to create a relationship between nature and architecture.
A mediation between this new architecture and the context is defined by a large green border that’s enhanced by the shape of the ground’s morphology. The new buildings are placed in sequence and define an articulated system of visuals inside and outside the area, completed with rich vegetation of native and naturalized species. Because of this the buildings are cushioned and a pleasant and protected environment is defined by a series of hills and green shields.

KM ROSSO Science and Technology Park, Bergamo (Italy), 2008
- Client: Brembo s.p.a./ River s.p.a.
Jean Nouvel’s Studio designed a comprehensive project for Kilometrorosso, conceived as a landmark alongside the Milan-Venice highway. A red wall along the highway gives identity to the project. The wall also protects the buildings surrounded by the park’s vegetation, while light shines through the transparent geometry of the buildings creating an informal softness of the greenery.
It is a continuous green system, completely pedestrian, that draws the initial inspiration from the Kilometrorosso itself. The strong connection between the red wall, the language of car racing, speed and the high technological vocation of the whole architectural complex all contributed to the vision of this project.
