| La Rigenerazione Di Rogoredo |
The scope of this thesis involved the study, development, and research of a theoretical master planning book, and the application of the authors' principles in the development of our masterplan, in a selected city. ((Milan, Italy). Through the analysation and interpretation of the theory, we were able to set goals and objective which were tangible with the readings' principles. Workshops and seminars enabled us to develop our masterplan step-by-step with a magnifying lens towards the minimum details of the masterplan specialty. Initially, the empirical part of the study was led through a set of a comprehensive study of the city which enabled us to tackle the current issues on-site and justified our design decisions. "Theory of a good city form", by Kevin Lynch was the most adequate theoretical book which aid to solve the economical and infrastructural gap between the city and the periphery. Several iterations and developments equipped the masterplan with design solutions that solved the lack of connectivity and recognition on-site(Rogoredo).
The masterplan predominately focuses on creating a permeable neighborhood that connects two disrupted communities across a bridge that enables inhabitants to enjoy views of the masterplan. A mixture of buildings in the programme will also boost up the economy of the site, creating new jobs and facilities available for various people in a very safe and enclosed environment.
Following the development of our Masterplan, the thesis instigated the development of a keyspace in the masterplans' programme. The districts' urban square has been developed to maintain and represent the theoretical readings on a smaller scale. The masterplan public realm displays key attraction elements that are only discovered once in the plaza.
