MILAN | Bocconi University Campus | U/C

A campus in Milan, transparent, green and open to the city. These are the four characteristics of the new Bocconi University Campus in the former Central Dairy area, between via Castelbarco and Ravizza Park, designed by Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa's Sanaa office.

“Three operations will be carried out in the 35,000 square meters space of the former Dairy”, explained the managing director Bruno Pavesi. “The first will allow us to combine all the activities of the SDA Bocconi School of Management, respecting the diverse needs of different users, with three buildings dedicated respectively to the MBA and master programs, the executive and administration courses, in addition to a small common area for the services. The second operation is a sports and leisure complex open to the public with Olympic-size swimming pool, gyms and a fitness centre. The third is hall of residence capable of accommodating 300 students and visiting professors, thanks to which the Bocconi will meet the growing demand for accommodation above all from foreign applicants.”


The area has an underground car park and only half of the area will be built up: 17,500 square meters will be kept as gardens, in a park which can also be used by the city's residents, added to which there will be 4,000 square meters of built up green.


It is a campus for Milan because it has been designed for the context and the scale of the city, as the Japanese designers, who won the international competition, explained. The project revisits the arcades and cloisters that characterize so much of the city's architecture in a modern manner, creating a series of internal green courtyards communicating with each other, sometimes surrounded by buildings, sometimes by a canopy. These cells touch each other, to allow a smooth transition between the buildings and through the park. The tower of the hall of residence, along the lines of other residential towers in Milan, saves space that can then be used as gardens.

It is a transparent campus because the opening of the University to the city is symbolised by the arcades on which all the buildings rest, so that wherever you look at the campus from there is a clear harmonious sequence of columns, transparent spaces and trees. The shell of the buildings alternates transparency and opacity.

“The communicating cells and the transparency enhance the concept of movement”, said the rector Andrea Sironi, “that in a university must involve both knowledge and the individuals. This work will complement the one that, with the adjacent buildings of via Sarfatti, via Roentgen, via Gobbi, piazza Sraffa and via Bocconi, establishes a true urban campus”.

The 21,500 square meters of park areas mark a strong continuity with the surrounding territory, and in particular with the Ravizza Park. Oak, hornbeam, black poplar, elm and hackberry trees have been chosen for their ability to adapt to the ground (they are present in the Ravizza Park ) and for their shading properties. Smaller species of plant already present in the Milan ecosystem, although not native ones, like oriental sweetgum and Japanese Pagoda were chosen as a counterpoint to these trees.

The opening of the city is not just about the park (which will be closed for safety reasons, at night alone), but also the three-storey sports and recreation centre, which will be built along the perimeter of viale Toscana. The project includes the city's first indoor Olympic-size swimming pool (50 meters long), beside a smaller pool that can also be used for therapeutic purposes, for rehabilitation after injury. On the second floor there will be a modular gym with stands, designed for basketball and volleyball, a 2000 square metre fitness centre and covered running track about 250 meters long, while the third floor will be reserved for the University's student associations. The sports facilities can also be used by the city's people in a manner that will be agreed on with the authorities concerned.

Here another Bocconi University building located in Milan, opened in 2008

Design Grafton Architects

The building is set back from the Viale Bligny & Via Roentgen edges to make a public space 18m x 90m inspired by the space forward of Hospital Maggiore. This new deep 'finger' of space reaches out to the city and beckons the visitor into the heart of the interior. This public space continues into the building, bringing with it it's stone surface, the floor of the city.

In order to make this grand place of exchange architects thought about the research offices as beams of space, suspended to form a grand canopy which filters light to all levels. The offices form an inhabited roofscape. This floating canopy allows the space of the city to overlap with the life of the university. Allows internal and external public spaces to merge. The beehive world of the research is physically separate but always visually connected to the life of the lower levels.

The underground accommodation is treated as an erupting landscape which offers support to the inhabited light filters above. Spatially this underground world is solid, dense and carved. Architects tried to establish a continuity between the 'landscape' of the city and the 'made landscape' of this undercroft. The external wall to the sunken Aula Magna reaches the full height of the building with the upper level offices inhabiting it's roofscape /attic. The full bulk and scale of this great room 'the embedded boulder' sits directly on the street edge and is the anchor for the totality of the building.

Very cool. Some of it looks like neo-brutalist architecture.
