Park Journal is a logbook of all (or almost all) the activities carried out in the studio during 2022.
The journal unfolds as a chronological sequence of materials, a timeline on which pieces of life and work in the studio are layered. The materials in this small publication are all unfiltered. This journal tells about ourselves at Park Associati and our 'behind the scenes'.

How can architecture generate a positive impact in the ecosystem in which it is integrated?
Park Associati participates in the second edition of the TEDxVasto | Countdown, organised to discover together possible solutions to combat global warming.

The project turns the former military arsenal of Pavia into the Lombardy Multifunctional Archive Centre, creating a cultural area open to the city housed within an urban park that is a contemporary interpretation of the meaning and form of the archive.
The project's vision envisages a set of connected open buildings designed to accommodate multiple scenarios. The archive's function of preservation and management is combined with that of sharing, thus creating a hub that welcomes employees, institutions, scholars and citizens.
The complex is located in the south-western area of Pavia, a strategic position that connects the city's historic centre to the north and the green banks of the Ticino river to the south. The first evidence of openness to the community is the removal of the arsenal fence wall on these two sides, followed by the creation of a large green pedestrian boulevard along the north-south axis.
The vast industrial structures of the three main warehouses, featuring saw-tooth roofs and large windows, are refurbished to house the archives, which will be equipped with innovative automatic retrieval high density storage systems.
Connected by a series of contemporary insertions, the buildings form a wide covered pathway open to the public that runs parallel to a green boulevard featuring different areas, such as reading rooms, meeting rooms, restoration workshops and educational spaces.
Team: Park Associati (Architectural project and landscape design), Steam (Architectural project, structures, geology, fire prevention, acoustics), Manens-Tifs (MEP project and sustainability).

We are proud to announce that Park Associati has won the competition for the new office buildings of Regione Lombardia.
As well as representing an opportunity to create a new workplace for Regione Lombardia, Palazzo Sistema is also a starting point for an urban regeneration process of the entire district with the direct involvement of the community that will become its main user. Characterised by a strong urban feel, the building's emphasis is on its vertical dimension. The project’s focus is on the needs and well-being of man, also thanks to the widespread green of the park which, seeping through the building, becomes an essential element of its internal spaces at all levels.

Canali inaugurates its new Flagship Store in Madison Avenue, New York.
The project, designed by Park Associati, reflects the elegant nature of the fashion brand, while the introduction of minimal details imparts freshness and contemporaneity to the store. Similar to the brand's distinguishing sartorial features, the materials associated with traditional architecture acquire their individuality and value through applied craftsmanship.
During the opening, the Italian artist duo Goldschmied & Chiari will present Untitled Views, a body of works chosen by Canali that are displayed in the store. The boutique is transformed into a refined and unique gallery, as the artworks define an immersive journey that takes the visitor from outside to inside the store, creating a dialogue with the style and uniqueness of the brand.
The body of work is composed of precious and evocative mirrored works that welcome the public into an imaginative, fluid, colorful environment, where dream, vision and landscape converge.
