Torino Lingotto Station: Upgrading.
Torino, PIEMONTE (ITALY)
During the development of the newoffice building design, a proposal was made for the redevelopment of the neighboring station and the square in front of it. The design concept, starting from a broad analysis of the urban context, full of initiatives and significant city emergencies , offers a railway station refunctionalization that also involves the square in front, through a reconfiguration and extension process of of the urban space (raised square) connected with the railway station building, subverted in structuring (accessible from top to bottom) and in its functions . Moreover, this solution offers the possibility to appreciate, in addition to the present emergences , also the railway landscape from an unusual certainly very suggestive point of view.
