The Italian joint-venture between Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners and C+S Architects has been announced as winner of an international competition for the requalification of a former railway station site in Chiasso, Switzerland. The team’s winning scheme proposes a “soft urban design” aimed at giving value to the pre-existing buildings, which are substantially maintained and sewn to the newly designed complex of two fashion schools: SAMS and STA.

The scheme will provide an urban hub, which will serve as a hinge between the city and the territory as well as, metaphorically, between the practice and culture of fashion. The scheme will feature open and transparent volumes that accommodate commercial and cultural programs.
