PLAZA DE ESPAÑA, MADRID, ES. Located in one of the most prominent space in the city of Madrid during the second half of the 20th century, Plaza de España is now losing its meaning and significance. The apparent neglection by the citizen is the evidence of this decline. Today the square is situated at the western end of Gran Vía, an upscale shopping street, one of the busiest in Madrid. It also lays in proximity with other important landmarks: The Royal Palace, The Temple of Debod, Plaza Mayor, and Puerta del Sol. In its huge size, Plaza de España is bordered by Torre de Madrid and Edificio España which are two major architectural landmarks of the city. With all these elements, this square which bears the name of the country has all the potential to be a major urban node of the city. Yet these days it has lost the basic function as a place of events for people to gather. It is also not representing any significance to the public nor carrying any meaningful symbolism to the citizen. Many issues has been surrounding the plaza causing it to serve mainly as a left over space in the city. There are traffic issue, pedestrian connection issue, the urban elements issue which doesn’t provide enough dynamic within the square, and also the degrading economy which has caused the deterioration of the surrounding buildings. A new strategy should be implied to improve the quality of Plaza de España which includes solving the vehicle and pedestrian circulation, redesigning the urban elements of the square, and also rebranding the image of the square. The aim of the strategy is to inject a new life to the square for it to regain the function and the significance for public.

TORRE DE MADRID & EDIFICIO ESPAÑA
MADRID RIO PARK
A square as a public open space serves as a connection of its surrounding. With its location, Plaza de España faces two very different city typologies. One is a more rigid and lively urban city space, represented strongly by Gran Vía, the busiest commercial street, while the other faces a more fluid space with the greenery area extended towards Madrid Rio Park. Two of the most iconic buildings in Madrid, Edificio España and Torre de Madrid, serve as façades to the plaza, giving it the monumentality and symbolic sense. At the center of the plaza is a monument of Cervantes, the famous Spanish writer, complete with statues of two of his most celebrated characters, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, representing strong duality of traits.
GRAN VIA OPEN AREA MADRID RIO MORE TRAFFIC
INDIVIDUAL AREA LESS TRAFFIC
The existing condition of the site which is divided into two different extreme creates a duality of the space. Gran VĂa and Madrid Rio. The high traffic and the less traffic. The rigid urban and the dynamic nature. This duality provides the quality to be developed further and it becomes the base on how to approach the site in the reinjection of a new life to the plaza.
Based on proximity, traffic analysis and sun shadow analysis, to take the base of duality into an extreme, the site is divided into two areas. The area near to Madrid Rio, which has less shadow will have more trees and will be an area for individual activities with more enclosed space. Area closer to Gran VĂa will be more of open space serving as a buffer from the bustling sound and traffic from the street.
The Cervantes monument serves as a symbolism for the past time. The big name of Cervantes and his two characters Don Quixote and Sancho Panza attract people to come to the plaza. But to inject a new life to the plaza a new symbolism is needed for a rebranding, to create an anchor to attract more people, specially younger generation. Taking the duality into an extreme, the Cervantes monument as the old symbolism is moved from the center stretching the distance with the new symbolism creating a dialogue between these two elements.
The extreme distance between the old and the new symbolism provides an open space which is essential as a basic element of a square, providing space for free movement of the people. And it also creates a belt around the open space to provide connections to the surrounding area and landmarks.
PLAZA DE ESPAÑA (AFTER)
· Water is an essential feature for a public space. It attracts people and it gives the sense of nature to a place. A water feature with reflecting pool and interactive fountain is put on the middle of the plaza to create a center to the plaza. · A big open space is created on the side of Gran Vía serves as a buffer to the busy street, providing freedom to the way people would occupy the space. With the advance technology nowadays, the plan of the open space is divided into small squares as the projection of Edificio España. Sensors are planned on the building to detect pedestrian movement so when they stay on one spot for a certain amount of time (e.g one minute), the small squares within certain radius will lit up and therefore create certain dynamic pattern on the floor. This will create a new dynamic way on the relation not only between the people but also between the people and the plaza. It will also provide a new identity to the square. · Taking advantage of the existing topography that is sloping down from Gran Vía to Madrid Rio, the strategy is to use steps as the element of design. Steps are always effective to create a place for people to stay. The steps are dynamically formed creating more secluded places for indivuals and group meetings.
URBAN INTERIOR PROJECT WORKSHOP MASTER PROGRAM POLITECNICO DI MILANO, MILAN IN COLLABORATION WITH: ANTHONY ZGHEIB (LEBANON), ANDRĂ‰S BERTERO (BOLIVIA) & DENISE ROBINSON (ECUADOR) 2015
LAZZARETTO, MILAN, IT. The Lazzaretto district stands close to the garden of Porta Venezia and is located close to the city center. It is a very dense zone with homogeneous building blocks. The streets are narrow and there are only two small public squares in the neighbourhood. The density and homogeneousity of the blocks are the result of series of historical events that occurred dated back since the fifteenth century. It was a huge building constructed on 1465 as a quarantine for people with plague. It was located outside the city wall serving the main hospital in the city center. Later on 1881, the building was bought by a bank who demolished it and eventually built the building blocks as we see now. Today the neighbourhood is very lively offering so many eating places including a lot of ethnic restaurants, bars for night life, and it is also one of the neighbourhood that is proudly known as gay friendly. Today the name of Lazzaretto and the district itself is almost unknown even to the people of Milan. This project is a study to find the tools to enhance the identity of the district and to increase the livability of the space for the people living in the neighbourhood.
The Lazzaretto district is located in Milan zone 3, close to the area of Porta Venezia. It consists of square blocks divided into two by Viale Tunisia which was once a railway. There is the church of San Carlo di Lazzaretto right in the center that has been there since 1488 serving the quarantine building. The only public square existing is Piazzale Oberdan which is currently being redesigned with new pavement and grass.
First step of the project is to do a reading of both the physical and sociological aspects of the neighbourhood and the community. The reading was done in several methods including direct observation, data colleting using different kind of media, and also with interviews not only to the people living in the neighbourhood but also to visitors. One of the readings was a questionnaire asking people what is their idea of Lazzaretto or what area do they think is their neighbourhood. The diagram above shows the diversity of how people perceive what they believe is their territory.
READING & MAPPING
Mapping based on the functions of the ground floor in the neighbourhood shows that it is an active area with many commercial activities for pedestrian. The neighbourhood is dominated by various of eating places, ranging from restaurants, bars, cafĂ¨s, osteria, trattoria, to winery, and many others. There are also a lot of shops, mainly for clothing, but also other kind of commercial shops, such as construction shop and electronics.
READING & MAPPING
The uniqueness of Lazzaretto is that architecturally it is a homogeneous building blocks that people can perceive as one unity but once inside, people can sense the livelihood and diversity this district has to offer.
Based on the reading and mapping, out of all the potential and the need of the people in the neighbourhood, the main purpose of the proposal will be to create a new identity for the district to make it known to the people of Milan and also to visitors.
First step in creating the branding for the district is by creating a logo. One certain color is use to emphasize the new identity and serves as a strong element that is easy to recognized. Blue, chosen as the main color, is derived from the channels that were once surrounds the Lazzaretto quarantine, and also in general water was once all over Milan before almost all the channels were demolished. Blue is also a symbol of refreshment which is part of the new identity to be portrayed of the district. The logo itself is a simplification of the shape of the district (the squares within a square) which is emphasized with the two L on the corners.
The urban intervention created will be on a system that is attached to the sidewalk. This system is flexible, we can add or substract based on the need of the surrounding restaurants. All material will be on metal, painted in blue, for easier installation and a longer durability.
The system creates moduls of urban furniture ranging from table and bench to lamp post and bus shelter. The existence of this modul speaks as an identity that unites the neighbourhood as one that is called Lazzaretto.

GRAND CENTRE, CERGY-PONTOISE, FR. The city of Cergy-Pontoise is a city full of potential of its own, considering the proximity to Paris, one of the major cities in the world, and Le Havre, a major port in northern France. But the city itself is not a lively city. There is no certain identity and there is a lack of vibrant for a city that is full of young people. One of the reasons for this problem is that Cergy-Pontoise doesn’t really have a main city center. There are several city centers like Grand Centre (in Cergy Préfecture), Cergy SaintChristophe and Pontoise. Although the number of students makes a great percentage in the city (45% of the inhabitants are under 25 years), they aren’t really visible in the city because there are lack of common public space. Students tend to hang around their own campus therefore they don’t really get to see and to know students from other universities. The ground floor in the city is also not active. In the weekend there are only two bars open and there is only one nightclub in town. According to 70% of students, there was little to no student life in Cergy-Pontoise. 65% of them travelled to Paris or to other parts of the region for their weekend outings, rather than staying in or around the city. Only 22% of students said they regularly hang out with students from other universities. This project is a proposal for an urban activation of the city. It will focus on the regeneration of Grand Centre, making it as the main city center, injecting new identity and new functions to create more interactions, encouraging more serendipity and therefore generating livability in the city.

To impose a new geometry on the pavement of the slab to create an orderly structured system as a base for interventions. The first lines are drawn based on the existing grid from the Platanus trees on the main square. From this point they are extended to the whole slab. Then the next layers of lines are drawn 45Â° to the prior layer to create ranges of possibility for the design and proportion.
To impose texture to three main open spaces on the slab. Texture not just in touch sensory but as the overall perception of the space. It is not only to enhance the livability of the place but also to look back at the historical aspect of CergyPontoise as an agricultural territory. The three textures are: vegetation or greeneries, earth, and water.
To bring the exclusiveness of knowledge out of the educational institutions. It will be more of an experimental mean that can be conducted under the FabLab. It aims to bring interactivity and attractivity to the city center. It will be spread all over the slab and be put on random systematic order based on the geometric grid from the first layer.

CORVIALE, ROME, IT. Situated at the suburb of Rome, Corviale is a 1km long social housing built in the early seventies inspired by the residential megastructures imagined 50 years earlier by Le Corbusier; immense machines for living. Today, “The Serpent”, as how it is known by the Romans, houses approximately 8,500 residents. It is a small city within a city. 30 years later after the construction, the building has been an icon and the residents who mostly has been living here since it was built are grown really attached and proud to it, despite of the degradation in condition both physically and socially. With a very low rent and high maintenance expense paid by the municipality, the building suffers from a lot of lost in euros every year. As a small long linear city, there is lack of local services and public space for the residents. This project is a submission for a competition titled “Regenerate Corviale” with the objective to acquire solutions and guidelines to achieve a new and better urban and spatial quality, and better livability, providing safety for the inhabitants, along all the horizontal and vertical connections.
