An active participant in the organisation and installation of numerous Triennale di Milano exhibitions, Zucchi has also repeatedly exhibited his work at the Architecture Biennale in Venice: Their apparently casual disposition seeks the best views toward the new landscaped park; the overhanging balconies are grouped in vertical volumes by porteplo thin metal structure, and generate unified figures which articulate the height of the buildings.

The scalar anomaly of the existing industrial Alfa Romeo precinct is opened to collective use by tracing a series of new pathways well connected with zuccji surrounding urban grid and to the larger renovation plan envisioned by Gino Valle. Ariatta ingegneria dei sistemi s.

A large trapezoid is cut in half by a highway and organised by Valle in a very elementary way. The windows of varying shape and proportion, the different shutter devices, the deep loggias with steel and glass parapets are disposed following a series of variations which maximize the long views toward the city.

All the fronts are treated in a dual narrative key, extended in continuous, skilful variations on the theme: Photography by Cino Zucchi. Their gable profile toward the city side and the use of a warm and textured surface material – decoloured terracotta tiles – resonate with the surrounding dense urban fabric, while the abstract composition of the loggias piled up as toy blocks carved out from a solid body and the white Trani stone inserts dissolve their silhouette toward the park.

On the side toward the park, a large metal screen protects the deep loggias of the apartments, conjugating high density with high environmental quality.

The large span structural type is excavated on the two uppermost floors by a glazed patio which creates a sort of inner garden which gives light to the new offices. In the midst of the area, the restored facade of the former Alfa Romeo cafeteria generates an extruded volume inflected toward the park by the new diagonal cut. And it could become important to contemporary Italian architecture and to the developments of a fast-growing but cloudy real estate market.

A new square along xino Traiano generates a new diagonal pedestrian way which becomes the main access to the new park. Edited by Rita Capezzuto. Their orientation maximizes solar exposure and the views toward the new park while protecting the intervention from the high traffic noise.
