On Repubblica, an article reports Stefano Boeri’s point of view on the new needs after two years of the Covid -19 pandemic. The architect explains how the pandemic has brought out three fundamental issues: the lack of apartments for young people, the need for widespread spaces in the area to produce art, music and culture and the conversion towards forms of sustainable mobility.
“We should go back to produce widespread culture. We have in front of us a season to redesign, reopen the geography of emotions – declares Stefano Boeri -, together with Federico Parolotto (trasportista), we are imagining a widespread network of pedestrian areas, something that a city like Milan, well served by public transport, can well handle. Milan has 60-70 small neighborhoods, villages, where the public space should be filled with services to the citizen and places to produce culture; and emptied of cars and parking lots. We must think, as never before, of a polycentric metropolis, which distributes the advantages over its entire surface and does not centralize them “.
