Architecture Competition: Il Chilometro Verde
The “Green Kilometer” is an infrastructure developed on a surface of 3,3 Km wich fragmenting the territory of the municipality of Segrate . The aim of this Competition of Ideas is to improve the urban fabric through the stitching of fragments of the territory and inserting new social and public functions.
Students are required to rethink this space by helping to reduce some of the critical issues in this area. The aim is therefore to transform this infrastructure into a place of identity and aggregation for the inhabitants and a positive polarity for a wider territory, with the aim of widening the basin of “typical users” and, consequently, increase the level of usability. The stitching plays a fundamental role for the entire territory and for the entire process of urban regeneration in progress, not only in terms of endowments, but also as a point of encounter and openness to the city. No specific functions are included in this area, provided that all spaces remain accessible to the entire community.
It is to point out that, in this perspective, the redevelopment of the Via Cassanese becomes the occasion for a redesign of the entire area on which the infrastructure currently insists, which in turn will be the connective tissue of the entire context and will constitute a new important urban polarity, a place of social garrison and a fundamental node in the network of pedestrian and cycling routes crossing and connecting the various districts of the city.
