Stefano Boeri Architetti-led team wins Genoa's Parco del Ponte job

The Red Circle, the Tower, the World Buildings, and the Polcevera Park with its vital chromatic and botanical variety will act as Genoa's welcome to the passers-by of the future.
– Stefano Boeri

A team comprised of Stefano Boeri Architetti, Inside Outside and Metrogramma Milano have won a design competition for the regeneration of an area of Genoa beneath Renzo Piano's new Morandi Bridge.

The original bridge collapsed in August last year, killing 43 people.

The Parco del Ponte competition was launched in March to regenerate the local area and create new public services, including a park, sports facilities, a public square, cycle and pedestrian infrastructure and a memorial for victims of the bridge collapse.

The Boeri-led project is called the Polcevera Park and The Red Circle. The Red Circle is a 1.5km (0.9mi) elevated pedestrian and cycle bridge that will connect areas of the locality. It will feature a 120m (393ft)-high Wind Tower producing renewable energy for the area.

Polcevera Park, designed by Inside Outside, will become a new centre for the community, with the planting of 43 trees in memory of victims.

The World Buildings, a series of multifunctional and industrial structures, will also be built to help reinvigorate the local economy.

"The Red Circle, the Tower, the World Buildings, and the Polcevera Park with its vital chromatic and botanical variety will act as Genoa's welcome to the passers-by of the future," said Boeri. "A welcome to the world that crosses it and reaches Genoa from a network of infrastructure that stretches from east to west connecting Italy to Europe, parks perched on vertical walls, workers and noblewomen, singer-poets and naval engineers.

"Genoa is a superb city, even though it's afflicted by poignant melancholy; beautiful, even if in the harshness of its everlasting contradictions. A city of steel and sea, sculpted by wind and tragedy, but always able to stand tall," he said.

The project will continue to be developed via an open participatory process, with local residents and stakeholders providing feedback and input.
