Policlinico dio Milano su Linkiesta

Within the first issue of Linkiesta Magazine for 2024, dedicated to Natural Cities, the project for the new Polyclinic of Milan, designed by Boeri Studio, is mentioned as an example of a therapeutic green roof in the context of Nature-Based Solutions, the environmental adaptation and mitigation strategies based on natural systems.

The issue of Linkiesta Magazine, featuring articles from the New York Times’ Climate Forward, presents examples of sustainable metropolises with soft streets, urban forests, and schools where fresh air promotes learning to combat climate change without getting entangled in ideologies.

In this context, in an article dedicated to Nature-Based Solutions applied to buildings, the new Polyclinic of Milan is mentioned, which features a lush green roof of over 7,000 square meters. Initially reserved for patients and staff from various departments, this green roof may be opened to the public in the future for special events of a recreational and therapeutic nature.

Among the major Urban Forestation initiatives planned for Milan, the green roof of the Policlinico stands out for its added value tied to the chromotherapy potential of its landscape, with plants that change colors across different seasons. It also includes a rehabilitative garden, with pathways of varying difficulty levels associated with different types of paving.
