In Carugate ecoLogicStudio, in partnership with Systematica spa and Dunnett Craven architects, have designed a shopping town that integrates within the surrounding countryside and that possess the benefits of an outdoor shopping street, such as natural light and fresh breeze, but filters out the unpleasant aspects such as noise and pollution, excessive heat or cold, strong direct solar radiation, rain and mosquitoes. Its malls act as buffer zones for the shops and the other internal spaces, thus increasing people comfort while decreasing energy consumption. The whole complex acts as an organism able to create multiple relationships with its surrounding environment, both exploiting its potentials and contributing to its improvement and conservation.
