It was “Lambrate Streaming” winning over Reinventing cities, the international call launched by the Municipality of Milan and the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, for sustainable urban regeneration projects. The winning proposal is based on the idea of a square-park binomial.
Presented by a multidisciplinary team led by the construction cooperative company Sant’Ilario and coordinated by Caputo Partnership International srl., the 7-million-project involves the redevelopment of Lambrate's railway yard through a 41,000 sqm public park with orchards, vegetable gardens, and 900 trees.
The new settlement will also work as a link to three nearby squares and will host an art installation, a sort of “urban backdrop” engraved with poems focused on train travelling by Lombard poets and with the involvement of the Piacenza artist Giorgio Milani. Also, the new area will be equipped with recreational areas, children playgrounds, sports fields, and dog areas. Works completion is expected in 2026.
“Milan is undergoing profound transformation, ready to welcome a more sustainable and people-friendly future,” said Anna Scavuzzo, Deputy Mayor of Milan. “Reinventing cities is certainly one of the most interesting experiences not only in our city, but on an international level and I believe that, even more today, it is an important sign of recovery and rebirth for all of us.”
