MoLeCoLa, the masterplan designed by Park Associati, comes first in the international competition promoted by the Municipality of Milan together with C40 Reinventing Cities for the redevelopment of the Nodo Bovisa site

Led by Hines Italia as investor, the winning group proposes a virtuous project of environmental and social sustainability and technological and cultural experimentation. The masterplan’s aim is to guarantee a high level of liveability and well-being starting from the needs of citizens, thus becoming an inclusive and accessible hub of opportunities within the Italian and international panorama.

The MoLeCoLa masterplan stems first of all from the desire to mend the city’s urban fabric, which is currently divided by the layout of the railway tracks. The area covered by the competition represents the right opportunity to relaunch the entire district, both by mending the urban fabric and by addressing the aspects related to sociability, mobility and the use of public spaces. By promoting the birth of a new district founded on the principles of sustainability and community, MoLeCoLa's intervention thus aims to act as a linchpin for the urban regeneration of Bovisa”.

Thanks to the collaborative work of all members of the group, a great result was achieved through integrated design and multidisciplinarity.
