Wednesday, February 11, 2015, starting at 13:00, the students of Laboratorio di Metaprogetto MEMORYStore, of Scuola del Design del Politecnico di Milano, will present their projects in an event that will take place in Viale Brianza Tunnel in Milan (access from via Ferrante Aporti).
16 real scale installations will tell of an intense experience lasted six months during those students have explored, documented, rethought the abandoned spaces of Milano Centrale railway station, trying to rediscover the history of places and people. Starting from the memory, the young designers tried to imagine the future of these places.
Through a close cooperation with the city institutions, local shopkeepers and residents associations, students suggested to set-up new activities within the spaces, proposing business models or alternative uses of the tunnels and warehouses which have been redesigned according to the new functions.
The railway tunnels at street level, in the past used to transport goods, are converted into a covered park which serves as a connective space for all other activities inside #magazziniricordati: areas for sports activities, open kitchens for all the neighborhood, places for entertainment, spaces for working or reading, hydroponic cultivation, markets which sell food from around the world.
The #magazziniricordati become again a place of intense city life, exchanges and sharing.
Don’t miss “MEMORYstore, the final cut”, it’s not only the presentation of the results of the students’ works but a real opportunity to raise awareness and involve those who don’t know the area and the problems related to the lack of use of an asset so valuable to our city!

“[…] the only possible reform of the city has to be found in the in-between spaces, in the domestic economies, in the human relationships, inside our mind”
Andrea Branzi. Biennale Architettura 2010
It’s inhabiting the interior spaces that the whole area around #magazziniricordati will be re-activated trough small economies and new relationships.
A linear park along the connection system of the magazzini is the first step to the reactivation process and will be the connective tissue of all other projects. Light, vegetation and recreational activities are presented in a artificial landscape.
The them of nature as a service for the city has been investigated by two projects that use hydroponic farming to produce and sell vegetables.
5 warehouses are dedicated to incubate and develop ideas; a functional and flexible space able to adapt to the creative process.
A reading paradise with three different environments expressing different reading approaches.
Passion for books and for new social processes is the kick off for another project that starts from sharing books with the ambition in creating a real neighborhood network in which everybody will share its private library.
The sharing attitude is also part of this project in which you can rent accessorized kitchens to cook with your friends.
Other two projects on streetfood and ethnic food have the goal to introduce new services and attract more people in the area.
A bar as storyteller for the homeless of the area to connect with them and get to know their stories.
#magazziniricordati is also a big chance to innovate in the entertainment sector; a cinema with three specific different programmes (on demand, the film marathons -with kitchen- and for streaming events) is able to offer a very different cinema experience.
The last project is a mix in between a commercial space and a very special library in which you can find, touch and buy all interior’s special materials.
