a-project in collaboration with U-LA have come second in an international competition for a new park in Milan adjacent to Garibaldi station and the emerging Porta Nuova commercial district. The project proposed a “point-cloud” approach to the new public space – establishing a flexible framework for innovative, inclusive and sustainable occupation with both landscape and architectural elements that would evolve in response to local aspirations and requirements.

a-project developed a versatile logic of architectural interventions operating within a unifying grid across the park that demonstrated the opportunity for an evolving “choreography” of the public space.

a-project is an architectural design practice that provides a flexible architectural service that is responsive to the complexities of contemporary life and the varied situations of the built environment and client needs. It focusses on an open approach to design problems – responding to the multiple factors that shape the process of designing – from the social, economic and physical environmental challenges to historic, material and personal narratives.
