Golder, in a team led by Arup, together with Snøhetta, Systematica and Grant Associates is among the five finalists of the international competition for drafting the regeneration master plan for the railway yards ‘Scalo Farini’ and ‘San Cristoforo’ in Milan.
Seven rail yards around Milan in Italy have been in various states of disuse since the last century. The landscape committee of Milan has agreed to transform the old rail yards into social landscapes under a project called Scali Milano. The redevelopment of these areas is crucial for the future of the Milan metropolitan area and for the quality of urban life.
An international competition for drafting the transformation and urban regeneration master plan was announced, and the participation was open for national and international multidisciplinary teams to collaborate and together bring forward design, transformation and connection ideas while fulfilling the required ecological objectives. In total, these railway yards add up to well over 1 million square meters and will be redeveloped over the next decade.
The next phase will include a clarified proposal of the master plan and the winner will be announced in early April 2019.
