CITYLIFE URBAN PARK AND TRE TORRI PIAZZA

An international tender for the redevelopment of the old Fiera Milano City

Citylife is a redevelopment project in the heart of Milan where up until 2005 the City’s Trade Fair operated. After having participated with the team headed by Gustafson Porter, and acclaimed winners, in the 2010 international design competition for the site’s 168,000sqm urban park, One Works was assigned the designing of the Piazza Tre Torri and the adjacent lower level shopping area. The plaza is located in the center of the three tertiary towers along the pedestrian pathway which links Largo Domodossola with the new city park. The double story plaza reveals itself at the two principle levels of the public domain, one being the towers’ ground floor (+129) and the other in correspondence to the hypogean level (+122), acting as a junction between the park and the pedestrian axis Domodossola. Within the same design scope is the below ground parking in addition to the basement levels of the Isozaki tower which connect the parking lots to the above commercial activity.
