Stefano Boeri Architetti, Metrogramma Milano and Inside Outsidehave won the design competition for the regeneration of the area underneath Renzo Piano's replacement for the Morandi Bridge in Genoa, Italy, which collapsed in August last year.

The Parco del Ponte competition was launched in March to regenerate the local area and create new public services, including a park, sports facilities, a public square, cycle and pedestrian infrastructure and a memorial for victims of the bridge collapse.

The Boeri-led project is called the Polcevera Park and The Red Circle. The Red Circle is a 1.5km (0.9mi) elevated pedestrian and cycle bridge that will connect areas of the locality. It will also feature a 120m (393ft)-high Wind Tower that will produce renewable energy for the area.

Polcevera Park will run under the new Morandi Bridge. It has been designed by Inside Outside to become a new centre for the community, with an installation of 43 trees in memory of the victims.

A series of multifunctional and industrial buildings, called the World Buildings, will also be built, with the aim of helping to reinvigorate the local economy.

"The Red Circle, the Tower, the World Buildings, and the Polcevera Park with its vital chromatic and botanical variety will act as Genoa's welcome to the passers-by of the future," said Stefano Boeri. "A welcome to the world that crosses it and reaches Genoa from a network of infrastructure that stretches from east to west connecting Italy to Europe, parks perched on vertical walls, workers and noblewomen, singers-poets and naval engineers.

"A Superb City, even though it is afflicted by poignant melancholy; beautiful, even if in the harshness of its everlasting contradictions. A city of steel and sea, sculpted by wind and tragedy, but always able to stand tall."

The project will continue to be developed via an open participatory process this month, with local residents and stakeholders able to provide feedback and input.
