NEW MILAN EXIBITION CENTRE!!!

PLEASE, RATE THE NEW MILAN EXIBITION CENTRE!
COMMENTS ARE ALSO WELL ACCEPTED!!


In 2005, Milan Fair’s New Complex will be – together with the City Complex one of the world's leading exhibition systems.
It is designed to be efficient and functional for the people who must work there, be they exhibitors or visitors.
The structure has been designed to allow several shows to be staged at the same time, even events that are not related to trade fairs, and to streamline the enormous flows of people and goods.

THE PROJECT













Milan Fair’s New Complex will offer complementary services that will help it to blend with the surrounding area: the area will feature an extensive parking system, vast landscaped areas and a wide range of compatible services, such as hotels, stores, cafés, bars and restaurants, and recreational facilities.

Compatible services will occupy an overall area of 60,000 square meters: 37,500 occupied by 3-4 star hotels in the southern area, 9,000 for hotel-related services (bars, cafés and restaurants, fitness centers and multifunctional spaces), and 13,500 for a shopping arcade with 150/200 stores selling typical and top quality products from Lombardy.

Numerous parking spaces are also planned, a lot with 10,000 parking spaces adjacent to the exhibition grounds, and an additional 10,000 in an area approx. 1.5 kilometers away that is also the property of Fondazione Fiera.

THE PARKING AREA

The new Milan Fair will occupy a total surface area of 2 million square meters and a gross floorspace of 530,000 square meters. The perimeter of the New Complex will measure almost 5 kilometers (4,843 meters for accuracy sake).

The dimensions of Milan Fair’s New Complex are truly on a large scale and are difficult to imagine for anyone who is not involved in the project or in the exhibition business.
The exhibition pavilions will be surrounded by a 9 hectare park, north-west of the complex, and pathways inside the landscaped area, for a total of 180,000 square meters of greenery.

Here are some interesting facts to help you understand:

the total surface area is equal to 57 San Siro stadiums or 100 Duomo squares
the cubic meters of land that has been reclaimed are equal to
the volume of a 100-storey building
the tons of steel that will be used will weigh 6 times the Eiffel Tower
added to this a total of one thousand trees will be planted
construction work will require the use of 300 vehicles comprising 30 excavators, 20 concrete mixers, 100 trucks and 50 cranes
the owner, Fondazione Fiera Milano, has invested more than 550 million Euros in project financing in the project


The New Complex will be connected to the city of Milan, Malpensa International Airport and other European key transport routes through its existing link infrastructures which are being expanded and the new ones that are being built.

Construction work is underway to extend Milan's subway, linea 1, from Molino Dorino to Rho-Pero to provide connections with the city of Milan.
Work is on schedule.

The network of roads and highways, will be upgraded in terms of capacity and access. This will improve connections with Milan and the rest of Italy, and will also connect the Complex to international transport routes leading towards northern Europe. On 7 March, ANAS (National Highway Authority) gave the go-ahead to the construction of highway links, involving an investment of 262 million Euros: (182 million Euros from public funding and the remainder from concessionaires.

The railroad connection, will be provided with the construction of the Fiera station on the railroad link and on the high-capacity Turin-Milan line.

THE CONNECTIONS

An amazing project by Fuksas, and Milan.
Im glad that he is now working on a big £2.5billion project in London... I hope it turns out to be as nice as this. Im sure he'll get a worm-hole or two in somewhere considering how much he likes em and how well he does them.

that's very impresive project, and the pics are wonderful, but...
i don't like it. i thought the Italian have a bit better 'taste' of architecture.
that's disappointing me very much. totally without flair, just an idea
that is not been well thought out, i suppose.
it's great milan made the new 'fira', but this project is so... simply, ... disappointing,
.... it doesn't have that 'something' that makes it special, new, and gives it a fresh look.

Now that was an opinion I wouldnt have expected with this project!
Its very well thought out and holds up excelently against Frankfurt's Messehalle by Grimshaw


The fair complex in Hannover, Geneva or Makuhari, and positively makes a mockery of London's piece of shit ExCel:

which looks like a bloody kid built it.

well, falubaz, just remember it's an enormous complex.. it can't be as "light" as a skyscraper..
specified that i think that the project gave a lot of importance to the estetic aspects, incredibly more then the "functional" projects usually do..!
as falcon remembers you, the long glass sail gives it that thing that makes it different from any other exhibition centre in the world.
i personally judge positively this project because all the peculiarities had an incredible attenction!
