Hi, sure!
Here's the Italian thread on those residences

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1520532

These are the most updated pictures, dating to the end of September. I'm gonna take some more pictures when I'm back in Milan, after the holidays. I'll share them here too, since you're interested

The first and last pictures show the preserved historical building, which is being renovated and integrated in the building. The rainbow stuff on picture 3 is a temporary pavillion.

Let me know if you have any questions or requests!

Renzo Piano: "Healthcare city? A true knowledge Mecca for researchers"

He consider his project "a clean factory with zero emission". "It will be a great specialized hospital, with lowest energy consumption in the world. A magnificent place where doctors can take care of common people, and a true knowledge Mecca for researchers of each nation. The dream of Italian scientist Umberto Veronesi, will become a reality in Milan: this is the European Institute of Oncology and Cancer Research Center" said archistar Renzo Piano, during a meeting at the headquarter of Infrastrutture Lombarde.

In front of architects and engineers, Piano outlined how it is a pilot project: "Milanosesto is an excellence in healthcare, but also architecture, because it abandons the idea of a gray and cold hospital, and revolutionize the whole concept, focusing on humanity and its relationship with nature".

President Besozzi has ensured that at the end of February 2016, measures taken to cleaning the land will be completed; while the final design stage will come in next six months.

New Prada contemporary art museum is set to be a true gift to the world.

Newest and largest contemporary art museum, once was home of a distillery in the industrial heart of Milan: the ambitious project is the vision of the Fondazione Prada, the art foundation set up by fashion designer Miuccia Prada and her husband Patrizio Bertelli in 1993.

While the foundation has championed numerous arts projects over the past two decades, including Carsten Höller’s Double Club installation, a pop-up club and restaurant in Islington, north London, the expansive museum will be its first permanent home accessible to the public. Other notable projects backed by the foundation, include works by Anish Kapoor, director and artist Sam Taylor-Wood, and Turner prize winner Steve McQueen.

“This new opening is an act of responsibility towards present times,” said Miuccia Prada. The foundation’s expansive arts and exhibition space is to be designed by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, blending the building’s original industrial character with several extensions, including an eight-storey tower described as a monolithic sculptural mass which they hope will become “a new landmark in Milan’s urban landscape”.

The 10 buildings that will be gallery spaces for contemporary art collection, as well as a rolling series of specially commissioned exhibitions, include a cinema, a library and other facilities. At the heart of the compound will sit the Haunted House, an intimate space which will house site-specific installations conceived by international artists.

Speaking about his complex design, Koolhaas said: “The fondazione is not a preservation project nor a new architecture. Two conditions that are usually kept separate here confront each other in a state of permanent interaction – offering an ensemble of fragments that will not congeal into a single image, or allow any part to dominate the others. The complexity of the architecture will promote an unstable, open programming, where art and architecture will benefit from each other’s challenges.”

Prada museum will be open to everyone, in order to emphasise it is open to all cultural projects and art forms. It will be added to the multiple institutions working in the field, both public and private, such as Hangar Bicocca, Pac and Palazzo Reale.

I've recently been to Milan, and the San Babila area looked terribly shabby.

What's the winning project for the Castello, though?
