The project area is divided into two residential areas, crossed by a private space with the function of a public bypass linking the school complex and Cascina Merlata (south) to the areas of future Expo developing (north).

The project represents an open residential system concordant to the existing urban structure and the landscape.
The development of the blocks is delimited by the urban park (west) and by a secondary road (east).

Between these two boundaries, the potentiality of the open space extends throughout an inner route, composed of a sequence of urban areas linked to one another and to the park.The disposition of the buildings is large-scale regulated by axes, trajectories and perspectives.
Small anchor points in the main public routes, hubs and intersections, together with entrances and transparencies contribute to develop a system of relationships which cooperates with the total project of the plan, where each part becomes necessary to the construction of a unitary, varying and complex system: a lively part of the city.
