The intervention concerns a former municipal owned production site (former Vicenza milk factory), located near the old city in the North - western area of Vicenza.
The project involves the construction of a civic centre, a public park that will host an event square, new cycle and pedestrian paths, a panoramic terrace and a parking lot.
The traces of the former milk factory are recomposed and re-thought, leaving room for areas treated with different types of plant essences which, put in a system with the functional program, determine the different areas of the park. All the elements that make up the public park start from the idea of taking up the centuries of history of the art of the gardens that follow one another through the streets of Vicenza centre, a town where the tradition of the historic garden takes shape in an immense botanical heritage. In this way, the public park is made up of a series of elements which, like citations, incorporate the main material elements that characterize some of the historic gardens of Vicenza and, through reinterpretations, define the design of the ground.
