New buildings and important renovation projects have changed the face of the city of Milan, creating new poles and places of interest in the city. We have discussed them in the pages of Floornature and Livegreenblog and we now invite you to rediscover the projects that have attracted the most attention among our readers.
We start with a skyscraper, Stefano Boeri’s Bosco Verticale, which has become a model to be imitated in other cities. Other transformations of urban landmarks include the redevelopment of Milan’s Portello district and the square named after Gino Valle, as well as the Porta Volta area with the new headquarters of Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli designed by Herzog & De Meuron. Landmarks in the city include the redeveloped Darsena and Naviglio Grande areas, where a number of pedestrian bridges have been constructed.
Architecture and fashion come together in the Fondazione Prada building designed by architectural studio OMA and the Gucci Hub by Piuarch. Projects announced for the future include the new surgery centre and emergency ward at I.R.C.C.S. San Raffaele Hospital by architect Mario Cucinella. And the supermarket of the future project underway at Bicocca Village, designed by studio Area-17 for Coop on the basis of experimental concepts developed and presented by Carlo Ratti Associati in the Coop pavilion at Expo 2015 featuring Iris Ceramica surface coverings.
