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.
Conceived and organized by Saporiti Italia, the exhibition “100+1 Alberto Rosselli per Saporiti Italia” pays tribute to Jumbo, the iconic armchair designed in the 1960s by Alberto Rosselli, one of the masters of Italian and international design. Ten international design firms have been invited to reinterpret the chair in ten new colours. Inspired from the photographic work of Angelica Dass, Park Associati presents Skins of the World, using a colour palette that involves the nouances of the human skin beyond the standard vision of white, black, red and yellow.
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.
