URBAN RECOVERY OF MILAN: DISUSED RAILYARDS
Milano, Italy

Professor: Javier Maroto Ramos
ETSAM, March 2013

After an urban research on the city of Milan and its dismissed areas, the project focuses on the disused rail yards. The goal is to design a flexible architecture that holds many different programs within the life of the building, in order to recover these large areas. Three kinds of structural modules are used (access, uses and patios/connections): on the inside, a prefabricated wooden box holds the utilities needed for each use, so these can easily be replaced when the building demands it.
