Abstract

Essay main goal is a critical discussion about prospects and methods of the development – intended simultaneously as regeneration, redevelopment and reuse - of Expo 2015 area, in Milano northern periphery. The asset – considering its own history (although recent), its dimensions and its implications - seems to be an exemplary case-study of megaproject, where at least 3 interacting aspects could be highlighted, all of them capable of defining a specific focus, along the complex ridges among architecture, planning and landscape: • the emerging need to design a neighborhood / city ex novo, in a very brief time frame, with the constraint / opportunity to define a new role and and a new meaning for the exhibition site fragments, in relation to the original context; • an overlapping of highly attractive public and private functions, with a strong international vocation; • a close integration between urban design and landscape project, as key factors of the quality, mainly regarding the infrastructures (gray, green and blue) role and their functional, ecological and landscape value.
