There was the need for the place, a bar and restaurant location, to be, at the same time, a flexible space and an easily recognizable site reflecting a precise, strong and unique image. These inputs generated the concept of the project: one “consistent and closed in itself” structure at the same time articulated in order to satisfy the different and flexible functions.

The project relates to the site simultaneously on three levels: the current context – the P.I.I. “Cascina Merlata” – the potential development area.
Our proposal creates a connection between the ‘fast system’ of via Gallarate and the ‘slow system’ of the park, an idea of continuous and fluid urban space that may extend far beyond the simple boundary of the area. The buildings are arranged parallel to the director of Cascina Merlata, not only to respect its visual scope, but also to ensure the higher permeability to those coming from via Gallarate. The residential units are separated from the ground, bridge building resting on the access units to private residences. The idea is to return the soil to the ‘pawn’.

The Fiera Milano project is located in the heart of Milan, spanning 106 acres on the old fairgrounds of this historic city. The scheme of Fiera Milano incorporates residential and office development, retail space and a museum all built around a central park, a much needed open space within the city. In 2004 Studio Daniel Libeskind along with Zaha Hadid Architects, and Arata Isozaki & Associates won the commission for the development of the site. In addition to leading the master plan, SDL is designing the contemporary art museum, the central office tower, a residential tower, and the first housing parcel.
