From competition to construction, regenerating Milan’s urban spaces
ARIA won the second edition of the C40 Reinventing Cities international call for proposals for the urban redevelopment of Milan's former Slaughterhouse area. The transformation of the area will create the largest social housing project in Europe and host a new university campus, providing the city with a new vibrant, sustainable neighborhood teeming with cultural activities.
In the competition phases, our architects and urban planners carried out the architectural analysis and redevelopment hypotheses for the historic buildings while our environmental team coordinated with the working group. For the design and consolidation phases of the master plan, we served as the architect, urban planner, and lead agent of the temporary grouping of project companies addressing issues related to decarbonization, environment, energy, sustainability, and water resources and responding to the competition’s 10 challenges.
Additionally, our team of environmental professionals are designing the land reclamation and overseeing the asbestos and FAV (man-made vitreous fiber) remediation project. We are also providing construction management and safety coordination.
The project aspires to be the first carbon negative area in the City of Milan.
