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.

Matteo Arietti, Head of Research at Park Associati, answers this question in an interview by The Design Story, as he talks about humanities as an intangible part of architecture.
“We need humanities to decode the process, nurture the culture, and nestle creativity to be effective problem solvers. We need to grow in our capacity to anticipate the needs of people, show that there are new functional ways of making their lives better and that architecture has mastered the art of preserving humanities. It is like connecting form and shape, history and culture come together in one scheme.”
Park Associati’s project Luxottica Digital Factory is featured in the architecture magazine CASABELLA in the September issue focused on the theme ‘Refitting’.
The project, located in Milan, is an intervention of industrial architectural restoration aimed at accommodating the Digital Factory of Luxottica, a world leader in the eyewear market. Thanks to Park Associati's retrofitting intervention, in collaboration with storagemilano, the complex becomes an open and flexible container where history, change and creativity find the ideal convergence ground. Paying the greatest attention to quality, using technologically innovative materials and seeking cutting-edge architectural solutions are the Digital Factory project’s focal points.

Park Associati act as tutor at the workshop organised by the Faculty of Architecture and Design of the University of Camerino as part of the II level Master CIRCUL_AR, Forme e Metodologie dell'Architettura Circolare (Forms and Methodologies of Circular Architecture). The Workshop is curated by Timothy Brownlee and Federica Ottone, teachers at Unicam, with the collaboration of Alessio Battistella, professor at the Politecnico di Milano, and the architects Matteo Arietti and Michele Versaci, of Park Associati.
Taking place in Amandola, in the province of Fermo in the Marche region, inside the crater created by the 2016 earthquake, the workshop focuses on the restoration and performance improvement of temporary houses, which will be relocated and reused in a new area.
The workshop will reflect on the critical issues related to temporary housing structures and on how rubble can be reused in a creative way, by thinking outside the box and following the principles of urban mining, respect for local material cultures and the reduction of CO2 emissions in the construction process.
19th - 29th July, Amandola.
The workshop is open to all students, who will be awarded three free credits. For information click here

The meeting is introduced by Nicola Russi, associate professor at the Politecnico di Torino and partner of Laboratorio Permanente. The moderators are Donatella Bollani and Claudio Nelli.
