the outskirts of milan, near the northern expressway, a new subway station is being built, intersecting with the metropolitan rail bypass. this is an opportunity to invent a new public space that hosts functional activities of neighborhood life, like: daycare center, library, kitchen sharing, outdoor cinema, concert hall, work lounge, outdoor market, skate park, rent hotel.

above the porticoes there is a complex of small housing units and low-cost work spaces designed for students and immigrants, who share a similar economic condition. this facility can take advantage of the wide range of services installed in this location.
