SANAA - Bocconi University in Milan

Bocconi University in Milan held an international competition for ideas for construction of a new campus on the site of the city?s former dairy. The competition formula, a competition on invitation, compared the ideas of a number of the world?s most prestigious architectural studios and also included a competition for students of architecture and construction engineering.

The panel of judges, under Archigram founder Sir Peter Cook, chose SANAA as the winner. The project presented by Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishizawa was chosen over proposals presented by the other architects invited to participate: Rem Koolhaas, David Chipperfield, Thom Mayne, Massimiliano Fuksas, Mario Cucinella, Cino Zucchi, Mathias Sauerbruch + Louisa Hutton, Benedetta Tagliabue + EMBT and Odile Decq.

The judges particularly appreciated SANAA?s redefinition of the concept of the campus as a unitary set of buildings which are not invasive but open to their surroundings, an "integral part of the fabric of the city". The new campus designed by SANAA is a concrete expression of the idea of the University as "factory of knowledge" and engine driving sustainable development in the city.
