Introduction

On January 1, 2016 the Municipality of Prato launched an international two-phase design competition for a new 3-hectare urban park in its historical city center, located within the perimeter of the city walls, where the former city hospital is located. Among its objectives, all aimed at interpreting the needs of the contemporary city, are the socio-economic development of the city center, the enhancement of its touristic vocation, sustainability and accessibility. After a first competition phase, that registered 230 candidates from all over the world, the international jury selected 10 teams that were invited to participate in the final competition phase.

On October 1, 2016 the international jury, chaired by architect Bernard Tschumi, evaluated a series of design proposals that all contributed significant ideas for the evolution of the contemporary city. All teams put forward new thoughts that reflect upon a renewed sensitivity towards the environment. The jury unanimously announced the winner : the team formed by OBR Paolo Brescia and Tommaso Principi with Michel Desvigne Paysagiste, that will be commissioned to design the final project for the new Parco Centrale di Prato.

Finalists announced

On Wednesday May 4, 2016 the jury – whose members are Bernard Tschumi, Massimo Nutini, Michelle Provoost, Sébastien Marot and Roberto Zancan – selected, among the 230 candidates from all over the world, the 10 finalists who will be invited to conceive a schematic design for the site.
Here are the finalists

“Prato is a vibrant, contradictory, innovative, and conflictual city: a city that, from the start of the 20th century and in particular after the Second World War, has represented a formidable urban, social, cultural and economic laboratory where new models have often been tested.

The area of the former Misericordia e Dolce Hospital represents one of the main strategic objectives the Municipality di Prato is currently involved in. Its next transformation, object of this international competition, is about the creation of a new large urban park of around 3 hectares to serve the city.

A new large public space which must become attractive as a metropolitan area and due to the flows of international cultural turism thanks to the facilities contained therein and thanks to quality and innovation in the treatment of the green areas and the presence of art and architecture with strong contemporary connotations: a new modern-day place set within a historical and valuable context, capable of conveying the image of Prato as the city of the contemporaneity of Tuscany.”

From the introduction of Valerio Barberis, Deputy Mayor for Urban Planning, Municipality of Prato.

Project site

The area object of this competition, located inside the perimeter of the city walls where the former city hospital was built, represents a large portion of the south-west quarter of the Historical Center where the axes of ancient foundations can easily be identified: the Decumanus Maximus (the present-day Porta Pistoiese up to Piazza San Marco) and the Cardo Maximus (from the Porta al Serraglio train station up to Porta Santa Trinita). The heart of the city, represented by Piazza del Comune, around which the “center” of the Historical Center has developed, is still located at the point where they meet. The main architectural features of the city are concentrated here as well as a series of commercial and cultural enterprises set up to serve a regional user base.

The project area is characterized by the “void” created by the vegetable gardens of the hospital, which remained intact until the enlargement was built in the 1960s and 1970s.

For the city, the creation of the urban park in the former hospital area represents an absolutely exceptional and unrepeatable occasion. Creating a park of over three hectares inside the fourteenth-century walls is in itself highly unique. It rarely happens that we witness projects of such significant proportions within parts of ancient and established cities.

The main aim of the competition is to completely rethink the former hospital area, creating an urban park that endows it with a functional and strategic role so as to fully include it in the network of city relations.

The new urban park must first of all be able to change the vision and perception not only of the new place that will be created, but it must also alter the perception of the downtown areas adjacent to it, conferring awareness that a new part of the city has been created inside the walls. Not an area closed off by walls and gates, but a prevalently open area capable of becoming a hub of vitality for the center and for the city outside the walls.

The project for the new 3-hectare park consists of two functional lots.

The first lot includes the complete creation of the green areas and therefore of the park, as well as a built volume with a minimum area of 500 square meter of gross floor area containing, among other things, the services essential to the park itself.

The second functional lot includes the creation of other buildings, up to a maximum of 3,000 square meters of gross floor area.
