Environment Park

The Environment Park is an area of more than 100.000 sqm, with some 30.000 sqm of offices, workshops, laboratories that make it the most important incubator of green technologies in the area of Turin. Environment Park is the most relevant brownfield regeneration in the town and is in fact conceived to allow a continuous implementation of new available technologies for building sustainability. Indeed it is designed according to an open design formula, a sort of Fun Palace of sustainable architecture, where architecture itself as a disciplinary activity tends to disappear, leaving the stage to new technologies of sustainability that might radically change the architectural appearance of the buildings.
