Milan municipality choose in 2002 ten urban areas located into paticular districs of the city to refurbish environmentally, restricting traffic.
Is it possible to generate urban design starting from a sector-based rule of the highway code? That was the aim of the project, to refurbish the district embraced by corso Lodi, corso XXII Marzo, viale Montenero and viale Umbria,experimentally organized by municipality's traffic department and assigned by appointment competition to the multidisciplinary team (architects, engeneers, landscape designers) leaded by Studio Redaelli Speranza.
The project identifies three types of intervention connected one another: street network rationalization, in order to limit crossings without origin or destination inside the district, especially near schools, historical places, etc.; a car parking strategy for a typical critical situation in Milan: car parking in no-parking areas (as pathwalks, public spaces...); identifying high quality zones which could become meeting places.
