For the Milan Design Week 2024, MoscaPartners entrusted Park Associati with the design of an exhibition solution for the new location of Design Variations, a garage located in Milan's historic Darsena area. The Hemp_scape project focuses on the intelligent reuse of building materials and is characterised by an articulation of spaces through partition walls made of dry-laid hemp cement bricks. It is an exhibition design that looks to innovation and environmental responsibility, enhances the architectural volume that houses it by creating fluid and flexible spaces and, at the same time, is capable of giving a strong overall identity to the Design Variations exhibition.

Matteo Arietti, Head of Research at Park Associati, has been invited by ARUP London to join a private lecture alongside Laura Wagner, Associate at 3XN/GXN. They will be delving into the realm of Adaptive Reuse, one of Park Plus’ key topics. Matteo will shine a spotlight on Park's groundbreaking research on Urban Mining, with insights into MI.C., an innovative urban regeneration project next to Milano Centrale. Urban Mining entails the vital process of salvaging and repurposing materials from urban environments, be it from buildings, infrastructure, or outdated consumer products. This approach not only addresses waste management but also champions architecture's role in fostering a sustainable future through the principles of a circular economy.

Park Associati invites Irina Zucca Alessandrelli, the curator of Collezione Ramo since 2013, to explain us what it means being the curator of a unique and important collection in Italy. She is the curator of the Milano Drawing Week and the section Disegni for Artissima fair in Turin. Collezione Ramo is based in Milan and traces the history of Italian art from the beginning of the last century to the present day through drawing. It was created to promote the culture of drawing, still little considered by many.

Caterina Steiner, Project Leader at Park Associati, will take part in the event Andermatt, a vision for Swiss Alpine living on the occasion of the exclusive launch of the luxurious Alpine residences “La Vetta” located in Andermatt, whose interior design was designed by Park Associati.
The interior design is inspired by Italian Alpine architectures from the mid-last centur, from Carlo Mollino to Edoardo Gellner. By combining tradition and modernity, traditional Alpine architectural styles were adapted to a contemporary context by integrating modern and functional design elements.

Park Associati has been invited to participate in the second edition of Build with 'Hempcrete Workshop', to be held on 13th and 14th September at the Casa da Arquitectura in Porto.
Build is an international conference promoting new design and construction approaches that demonstrate how the environmental impact of buildings can be reduced applying existing technology.
The two-day workshop, organized by Park Associati with the support of Natura Matéria, aims to explore hemp block technology and build an architectural installation using this material. In the first session, under the guidance of César Cardoso of Natura Matéria, students will understand how hempcrete is produced and why such a low-tech material could be an innovative resource for the future construction industry. The second session will be dedicated to the direct application of the material: students and tutors will focus on using hempcrete blocks to make Tatu, a small outdoor pavilion designed by Park Associati to be placed inside the courtyard of the Casa da Arquitectura.
13th and 14th September
