Pioltello – Preliminary design for a masterplan

Pioltello – Preliminary design for a masterplan

“Telluric movement” is the essential gestural generator of the project.

Existing natural structures are the engine of this movement – water on one side and a park on the other – which seem to interpenetrate, creating a sequence of ripples in the landscape.

The result of these tensions is a sequence of parallel “fingers”, which rise and fall as “waves” of various shapes to contain the various functions provided by the plan. Promoted by Pirelli Real Estate, the intervention has a cost of 110 million Euros and covers an area of 82,000 m2.
