Santa Giulia Masterplan on show at the Venice Architecture Biennale

The Italian real estate company Risanamento presents Foster and Partners Santa Giulia Masterplan at the 10th Architecture Biennale in Venice. The exhibition is entitled Cities within the city. Build today the Milan of the future.

A paradigm for clean, integrated and sustainable future living, the Santa Giulia Masterplan is a vibrant mixed-use neighbourhood that builds on the unique urban tradition of the city, transforming a former industrial area in the south-east.

The first major intervention in Milan for over 50 years, this urban centre combines housing, offices, shops, restaurants and cafes with cultural facilities such as a Congress Centre and Exhibition Hall. Essential to the logic of the masterplan is the creation of generous green spaces and a large central park that is a green lung of the city. More than a new district, it will represent a true city within the city.

The Venice Architecture Biennale runs from 10 September 19 November 2006
Cities within the city. Build today the Milan of the future is in the Fonderie dellArsenale.
