The Tre Torri, and the Hadid, Isozaki and Libeskind residential districts have distinctive characters which will be appreciated and embraced as part of the park’s character. The park creates a seamless transition between the wide range of activities and the functional, servicing and level requirements but also delivers its own unique tranquillity and integrity through simple, bold landscaped spaces creating their own contexts within the surrounding three-dimensional urban environment. The operative element employed to shape, connect, and define the CityLife park on the former Fiera site is the metaphor of ‘pleating’ to create distinctive sculptural forms.
A popular and well-loved park in demand by local people to promenade with families and friends, walk their dogs, exercise, cycle and get involved in urban events and activities, CityLife park constantly changes its visual offer, transforming and refreshing it throughout day, week and year. Change, and interest, can be created through time, with nature and seasons, but also through movement, and an ever-changing display of plant choices and a wide range of spatial scales, programmes and atmospheres. Visitors will constantly return if they are presented with opportunities and choices, dependent on time and movement, experiencing constant changes in their observations and perceptions.
