Park Associati are pleased to take part in the fourth edition of the Pisa Biennale of Architecture with their MoLeCoLa masterplan. The project fits perfectly into the theme chosen by the Biennale: rethinking the future of cities and private and public spaces. MoLeCoLa rethinks and redesigns one of Milan’s vital nodes − the Bovisa neighbourhood − opening it to urban flows, ‘mending’ its connections with the surrounding areas and opening new shared public spaces for work, study and residence.
A video produced by Park Associati complete with various design drawings will be available for viewing.
