Tuscolana – Campo Urbano
The Campo Urbano redevelopment project for the Tuscolana Station area in Rome will transform the district from an underutilized railway station into a car-free campus with residences, offices and flexible spaces.
Promoted by an international competition of C40 Reinventing Cities, it is one of a number of major, sustainable redevelopment projects currently being planned in the capital.
MIC-HUB, together with the winning team led by Fresia RE SpA and with Arney Fender Katsalidis as Lead Architect, proposes a different class of infrastructure for the area: Campo Urbano aims to provide maximum accessibility for city users of all ages, including those with special mobility needs.
FRESIA RE SpA
- -30% reduction in CO2 emissions linked to the movement of residents and employees
- 290% increase in square meters of cycle/ pedestrian routes
- Zero m2 at grade for private cars
MIC-HUB developed the strategy for Campo Urbano’s sustainable mobility, transforming the entire neighbourhood into an area with fewer cars and more livable streets.
Campo Urbano fosters inclusiveness and permeability by redefining the public space, achieving a higher modal share of users, happy to use sustainable modes of travel, through innovative policies and technologies.
In addition, through light mobility infrastructures, the new district reconnects the supporting corridors of the LPT that cross and lap the area.
Campo Urbano aspires to interact with the city of Rome on different levels. On a large urban scale, the project seeks to affirm itself as a driver of the larger planning project called the Green Ring. At a more local level, it is an urban redevelopment project for a part of the city, the Tuscolano Nord district, which will become a highly connected and permeable space.
