Expo 2015 - American Food 2.0. The USA present the concept of their pavilion


A lightly structured and welcoming barn, inviting visitors to embark on a journey in the world of sustainable food. This is the concept of the Pavilion of the United States of America which the team “Friends of the U.S. Pavilion” has developed for Expo Milano 2015. The project “American Food 2.0: Sustainable, Innovative, Healthful, Entrepreneurial and Delicious” was presented this morning in the main office of the company which is organising the Universal Expo.

The CEO of the International Culinary Centre, Dorothy Can Hamilton, the vice-president of “The James Beard Foundation”, Mitchell Davis and the managing director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Italy, Simone Crolla, who are members of the group “Friends of the U.S. Pavilion Milan 2015”, took part in the meeting, which was attended by the Sole Commissioner appointed by the government for Expo Milano 2015, Giuseppe Sala, and the Ambassador of the United States in Italy, John R. Phillips.

U.S. President Barack Obama himself had announced on October 17 to Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta the members of the team which will develop the project and manage the U.S. Pavilion during the six months’ period of the Universal Expo in Milan.

Diversity and responsibility are the pillars on which the presence of the United States of America at Expo Milano 2015 will rest. These elements will be enhanced both in the technological equipment of the pavilion and through events, conventions and happenings which will enliven the exhibition area. The project will be based on the idea that food is a universal language and that the future of nutrition depends on the political, diplomatic, social and technological ability to solve in a creative way the problems connected to nutrition at world level.

Visitors will be engaged in an itinerary “from farm to table” where video installations and vertical and roof gardens – representing the 50 U.S. states and the White House – will lead them to discover the rich cultural, scientific and culinary tapestry which forms the United States of America. A specific programme of initiatives – the Manifesto Project – will be developed in support of corporate responsibility and environmental and food sustainability. Furthermore, a plan envisaging students’ involvement will be launched in cooperation with Italian study projects at U.S. universities.

American Food 2.0 aims to be a young and global Pavilion. For this purpose, the most modern technologies and last-generation communication tools will be deployed: it will be possible to live the experience offered by the U.S. pavilion even through social media.

Moreover, the search for downright regional ambassadors will be launched from the USA. These ambassadors will travel with Food Trucks within the exhibition area and on the streets of Milan during the event.

The target is to tell the story of “Made in USA” agriculture and nutrition, through the innovative elements introduced in food production and distribution processes, and to highlight the important contributions given so far to win in a responsible and sustainable manner the most thorny challenges which humanity has to face.

I translated the article with Google translate. So basically, the CERBA project is still in planning and will be moved south of the park area?

Demolition of old buildings: the area closed by 13 years will have new projects soon
milano.corriere.it

Begin demolition of the former Poste Italiane building in Piazzale Lugano. The advanced state of dismantlement is more visible from the rear of the building, which looks out on the railroad tracks, and that is on the end of Scalo Farini close to the Bacula overpass. After years of degrade, the scenario now is changed. With the new urban rules of the City of Milan, the italian group has its own autonomy: demolish and rebuild. The double body of the building and warehouses for sorting parcels, envelopes, letters, near the former Farini railway station, are demolished now. Another building will be blown away: it's a skeleton in iron and steel. The expectation is for the development of the agreements on disused railway yards. Soon new projects.

Bocconi University: new campus designed by japanese studio SANAA


Milan change and collects little gems of architecture: the works of internationally renowned architects. The Japanese SANAA design the new campus of business school in Milan. Between Via Castelbarco and Parco Ravizza: four buildings for Bocconi University, a tower dormitory for students and visiting professors, and a sports and leisure center with lap pool, volleyball and basketball areas, a running track and a fitness center. In addition 21,500 square meters of green areas. The cloisters of Università Cattolica, Università Statale and Accademia di Brera, inspired the Japanese designers who have designed a series of landscaped courtyards bordered by the buildings themselves or covered shelters. The spaces are all in relation to each other, independent and always in communication.

Green revolution in the city center: stop traffic in Piazza Castello
milano.repubblica.it

image hosted on flickr

"From May,1 2014, Piazza Castello will be closed to the traffic and becomes more pedestrian" - it was announced by Mayor Giuliano Pisapia, who added - "Priorities for Milan now are mobility and livability, we're doing everything possible to achieve the goals". The largest element of novelty, exactly one year before the start of Expo 2015, will be the new pedestrian pavement of the square. It's a project that will make the city very nice and more attractive for the Milanese people and tourists."

Pedestrianization like New York City
ilsole24ore.it

The closure to vehicular traffic will involve Piazza Castello, between Quintino Sella and Minghetti, and will remain open to traffic on the other service road, not to create inconvenience to residents. "The model is the low-cost pedestrianization of Bloomberg in New York City. We've 110 days to achieve it". Moreover, it was appealed to the world of design and creativity "to create new street furniture and new ways of socializing".
