Milan holds some of the best contemporary architecture, and its buildings should be what all modern architects strive to rival.

The building is in line with the sustainable construction parameters and will obtain LEED certification. Building orientation, shading systems, plant types, renewable energy sources use, water resources management and recovery, material choice, tree species: choices made always thinking about and safeguarding the environment.

An hidden underground city in Milan?

Next to the Cathedral, in the historic city center, works for the district heating has been blocked due to a discovery: remains of ancient walls, probably buildings, that archaeologists will analyze. The City Government want understand what it is. In the case of a sensational discovery of historical importance, everything will be covered, and after the Universal Exhibition of 2015, they will resume archaeological excavations.

Piazza Castello new look: 11 projects with green areas and panoramic views.

Eleven projects, for the new look of Piazza Castello in Milan, will be presented on September 27, at the Expo Gate. City's Goverment has requested to develop the right idea to redesign the square, that in May has banned cars. A provisional reorganization to complete in time for Expo, "low cost and reversible".

City Council has given to La Triennale Design Museum, the task to coordinating submitted projects: architect Alberto Ferlenga has selected designers, architects, engineers and traffic experts, from Milan, which have drawn up proposals: Piuarch, Onsite studio, Matteo Fantoni, Studio Albori, Attilio Stocchi, Park associati, Urbana, Marco Zanuso, Guidarini & Salvadeo, Morpurgo De Curtis e Obr Open Building research.

Designers and architects have held public meetings with citizens during the summer, and amalgamate ideas in creative workshops. After several controversies on stalls/markets and the opposition of some residents for the pedestrianization of the whole area; they thought to return to contemplate the beauty. The 'beauty' as concept, as the historic answer of italian architecture.

In June, City's Government has dictated guidelines. The pedestrian area must accommodate "minimally invasive structures" and "for commercial initiatives, which will ensure a high standard of quality to sell products of Italian excellence, only on weekends and for short periods". Also "attention to aesthetics": a project that allows contemplation of the castle.

Bosco Verticale in the IHA 2014 final!

Five finalists have been announced for the International Highrise Award (IHA) 2014, with Milan's Bosco Verticale designed by Italian architect Stefano Boeri, in the running against four other towers to claim the title of world’s best highrise.

“Good architecture requires a willingness to take risks and a desire to try things out. All the finalists took this approach – there can be no innovation without experimentation. Our shortlist comprises three different prototypes of the future,” said jury chairman, Christoph Ingenhoven. The IHA Awards are aimed at architects and developers whose buildings are at least 100 meters high, and have been completed in the past two years.

The judges, which consist of architects, structural engineers, real estate experts and architecture critics, assess the projects according to a strict criteria. This involves: future-oriented design, functionality, innovative building technology, integration into urban development schemes, sustainability and cost-effectiveness. The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony in Frankfurt on November 19, 2014, taking home €50,000 in prize money.


Shortlist include: Renaissance Barcelona Fira Hotel (Barcelona), Sliced Porosity Block (Chengdu), De Rotterdam (Rotterdam), One Central Park (Sydney).
