City Life Project:

The old historical district of the Fair in Milan will be dismantled and the new fair place of the Rho Pero enlarged. City Life is a project studied by three famous international architects Zaha Hadid, Arata Isozaki and Daniel Libeskind to retrain the old location of the fair plant.
City Life is a district that will rise on an area of about 255,000 mq and it schedules the creation of the largest pedestrian area in Milan, the creation of a park that will cover the 50% of the surface available, and residential areas, structures for various services, the Museum of Contemporary Art planned by Libeskind with the collaboration of the Triennial of Milan, and the Building of the Sparks (Palazzo delle Scintille), that wants to be a wing of the district dedicated to children.
But the most disputable part of this project is the expected construction of three skyscrapers (among those, the "sbilenco" of Libeskind, not appreciated by everybody) to give hospitality to the business sector, and that could be used in the future as hotels.
