Gallaratese + QT8

Mialno, Italy

This consists of the improvement of all the green spaces and the present equipment in the zone, which is 4km long and has big affluence of people. Nowadays this area is one of the biggest residential areas in Milan and is used as a sleeping neighborhood. So people can not enjoy the spaces.


This green dorsal spine will be able to gather and relate the different typologies of uses, that allow us to introduce sporty, public, and social equipment: increasing the value of the neighborhood and giving it a new and softer character.


Along with the masterplan, we find circular points or areas that ‘sew’ space. These are the ones in charge of giving a specific use to the area, as there are different spaces with several diameters and uses. The bands are used as common elements of the masterplan, allowing to bring dynamism and new uses to the spine, such as urban gardens, etc.
