Architecture studios Diller Scofidio + RenfroPLP Architecture and Carlo Ratti Associati have revealed plans to convert a goods yard in Milan into a park and the athletes’ village for the upcoming Winter Olympic Games.

Located in the Porta Romana neighbourhood in the southeast area of Milan, the scheme will see Diller Scofidio + RenfroPLP and Carlo Ratti Associati transform the site into a largely residential neighbourhood wrapped around a large urban park.

The neighbourhood will be comprised of apartment blocks, offices, retail space and sports centres.

The large urban park at the heart of the new development will form an accessible biodiverse space, with vast meadow gardens, wet and woodlands as well as two elevated greenways that extend the length of the neighbourhood.

The team of architects designed the elevated-linear greenways that will bridge the remaining active tracks on the site to connect the two parts of the development.

Much like Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s High Line in New York, the greenways will form raised gardens that house hundreds of trees and provide walking routes across the development.

Biodiverse wetlands and woodlands will run alongside the tracks and will be set amongst community gardens, courtyards and sports courts that aim to promote communal and wellbeing activities.
