Urban Design in Darsena Lake in Milan (Italy)

Thesis in Domus Academy

 

The target was to bring the domestic qualities and feelings that we experience inside our houses into the outdoor public space. We reused materials such as old pieces of wood and metallic pipes.

 

The axis of the project was designed over extensions of significant routes around the site, which are connected inside the Darsena Lake. In this way, we achieved to connect huge movement powers inside the project, giving breath to the pedestrian life.

 

The inspiration comes from Leonardo Da Vinci’s vision to connect the city of Milan through the water canals.
