Characterised by the interchange between past, present and future, MI.C is a bold project that aims to regenerate the urban polarity of Stazione Centrale. This urban and architectural project examines the history of the city that was and reinterprets its character moving it towards what is to come – a new Milan. Environmental responsibility, urban regeneration and architecture come together in a model of experience that looks to the innovation of new social interactions and relationships.

The new office tower envisaged by Park Associati’s project for the former Hotel Michelangelo is destined to become the landmark that will lead the way in the redevelopment of Piazza Luigi di Savoia – adjacent to the Stazione Centrale – by reconnecting car and pedestrian flows and promoting alternative mobility thanks to the creation of a bicycle parking station.
Following the complete demolition of the hotel, the new complex comprises two adjacent towers rising from a four-storey volume whose facades are in line with the surrounding buildings, thus creating a visual connection between the complex and the square’s structures.
2022 sees the beginning of the redevelopment, restoration and conservative refurbishment of the building in via Turati 32 in Milan, entrusted by Artisa Group to Park Associati. Designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni and Luigi Fratino as part of the complex that houses the Museo della Permanente, the twelve-storey tower comprising 5,000 square metres of office space will maintain its current intended use after the intervention.
Stemming from a thorough analysis of the surrounding context – strongly characterised by contemporary architectures – and respect for the original project, the new design aims to maintain and enhance the formal uncluttered style of the building's lines, emphasising the composition's sobriety.
The removal of any superfetation and the building’s adaptation to the current plant needs and to the casing’s performance requirements aim to minimise, where possible, the impact of the interventions and to create ad hoc elements integrated with the original project.

This year’s second edition of the CirculAr Master of the University of Camerino proposes approaches, methodologies and tools focused on the circularity of the processes of transformation of the built environment. The meeting between CirculAr and Park Plus and the sharing of their mutual experiences represent an opportunity to make forward-looking yet tangible reflections on the contribution architectural culture can offer within the context of ecological transition.
