Bicocca in Milan, Island Brygge in Copenhagen, Hafen City in Hamburg: three major urban transformation projects, in three major European cities, three different ways of converting abandoned areas or port areas into new neighborhoods. The exhibition already set up at the Urban Center illustrates the places of research through texts, reports and photographs by Giovanni Hänninen: the Bicocca district, a pioneering case in Milan and in Europe of the conversion of a large industrial area into a university, residential and tertiary district ; the area of Island Brygge in Copenhagen, the result of the transformation of a portion of the city in which popular residences and high-risk production activities have coexisted for a long time; the new HafenCity district in Hamburg, designed in the heart of the city, following the relocation of port activities, with the aim of marking a major change in the Hanseatic city.

Coordination: Massimo Bricocoli and Paola Savoldi, Department of Architecture and Urban Studies, Politecnico di Milano.

 

Research group: DAStU Politecnico di Milano (Massimo Bricocoli, Paola Savoldi, Francesco Curci, Giovanni Hänninen); HafenCity Universität Hamburg (Ingrid Breckner, Nima Dafateri); Center for Urban Planning, Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen (Jens Kvoring, Katrine Østergaard Bang, Bruno Tournai).

Bicocca a Milano, Island Brygge a Copenhagen, Hafen City ad Amburgo: tre importanti progetti di trasformazione urbana in tre grandi città europee, tre modi differenti di convertire aree abbandonate ed aree portuali in nuovi quartieri. La mostra, già allestita presso l’Urban Center illustra i luoghi della ricerca attraverso testi, resoconti e fotografie di Giovanni Hänninen:  il distretto Bicocca, un caso pionieristico a Milano e in Europa di conversione di una grande zona industriale in zona residenziale e di università; l’area di Island Brygge a Copenhagen, risultato della trasformazione di una parte della città dove abitazioni popolari e attività di produzione ad alto rischio hanno convissuto per lungo tempo; il nuovo quartiere Hafencity ad Amburgo, progettato nel cuore della città in seguito allo spostamento delle attività portuali, con l’obiettivo di portare un significativo cambiamento nella città anseatica.

 

Coordinazione: Massimo Broccoli e Paola Savoldi,  Dipartimento di Architettura e Studi Urbani, Politecnico di Milano.
