Milan, Italy


The proposal for this new park is part of CityLife, a redesign of a district of former fairgrounds in Milan, and adds the finishing touches to what will be a large-scale revamp of the area.

The Parco dei Quattro Nastri was born from the idea of four dancing green ribbons (“nastri”) that interact between themselves and the other buildings on the site to create a playful design that reconnects the city and its inhabitants to the space: returning human presence in the park and creating a space of interaction for its users; returning to the tradition of innovation and marrying the idea of the low0tech with the high-tech, and finally reconnecting the park with the city at different scales. The Parco dei Quattro Nastri will give Milan a model for how to build and re-insert nature onto the city.
