Land-use planning for the General Development Plan of Gorgonzola (PGT)

photos / design


In the frame of the variation of the Municipality’s general development plan, SRSARCH looked after the design for the land-use component. The starting point for us was the experimentation of a real interaction between urban and landscape policies, together with the Urban development office and a multidisciplinary team. We chose a cross-approach, related to the notion of “landscape” derived from the European Landscape Convention. We believe that establishing a virtuous interaction between the city and the countryside, the two realities can strengthen each other. For us this was intended as a key for the development of the city on a wider scale. Moreover, the experimentation aims to valorize transversally the peculiar and rich characteristics of the geographical context: from the Valley of the Molgora stream to the “Northern areas”; from the Martesana’s canal to the Parco Agricolo Sud Milano; the parks of regional interest alongside the MM2 metro line and its 3 stops; from the urban farmstead to the garden-city of the historic center. The land-use component manages to reflect the quality of all this locations. The General development plan is enforced since December 2017 and approved since april 2018.
