“(Milan) is a stimulating city to work in, ugly, but not provincial. You never meet anyone. That's its great advantage: it’s solitary. The same sort of solitude that pervades New York.”
Vico Magistretti, 1980
"Architecture is my passion: building means creating volumes and internal spaces. The fascination of three-dimensionality, basically.” V.M.
The Milano San Felice district, covering an area of around 800,000 m2 and straddling the municipalities of Segrate and Novegro, started off as a private project for a residential area for the bourgeoisie.
It follows the low-density gated community model, surrounded by green spaces and informed by a clear hierarchy of pedestrian paths, cycle lanes and vehicle routes and the ratio between the district or neighbourhood.
