The former factory area and its surroundings offer the opportunity for a transformation that aims to connect and balance the new development to the northern neighborhood of the city center and to the hospital area, working on a light densification and on a flexible mix of functions and facilities. The existing building fabric located along the roads is also densified with the infill of careflully scaled new housing blocks. The area is provided with a system of pedestrian public and semipublic green spaces through forms of gardens, courtyards, pedestrian and bicycle circulation and works on the general reduction of the presence of cars. A new life is given to the Thiry building, the former Mill and the Museum, becoming the elements that connect the project to the memories of the past.
