Updates E1-E2 Building / The Showroom (Porta Nuova district)

Italian architecture firm, Piuarch, wrote on its FB account:

Quote:
We are thinking about a new visionary project for our Porta Nuova building's roof. In the meanwhile, we did a really exciting site inspection…
#architecture #milan #portanuova #skyline

The project will be permanent and open to the public.

A new panoramic roof-garden? Who knows? However, this is the building they are talking about

DOSSIER. Europe's third largest eco-village will be built in Milan.


It is expected to become the largest eco-village in Italy and the third in Europe behind Vauban (Freiburg, Germany) and Ørestad (Copenaghen, Denmark).

The mastarplan about the future of "Piazza D'Armi" envisage the construction of 4,000 apartments, new public park of 27 hectares, pedestrian areas, and a series of services like school, library and shops. According the plan, the new buildings have to be eco-sustainable and self-sufficient, with a rainwater recovery system and a smart waste recycling.

"Piazza D'Armi" is an area consisting of a former military depot and stores (Magazzini di Baggio) and of uncultivated land. Its surface spans over an area of 416,150 sqm or 4,479,401.32 sqft (for comparison, CityLife area is 366,000 sqm).

The zone is predominantly for residential and service sector use, with public and private amenities and commercial enterprises, as well as public facilities such as Borromeo Hospital, Baggio Military Hospital, Parco delle Cave, Bosco in Città, Parco di Trenno and Parco di Baggio, the main urban parks in the municipality. The zone in which the area lies is well served by over-ground public transport and by Line 1 of the underground (Inganni stop 850 m away). Access to the area using private transport is guaranteed by local roads and proximity to the Milan Western Bypass (3.5 km away).

DOSSIER. New exhibition space at Tre Torri Station.

Tre Torri Station (located in Piazza Tre Torri, CityLife area) presents "The Gallery", a project by Italian insurance group Generali that aims to reinterpret the concept of underground station: not only a dynamic urban crossroads but a constantly evolving public exhibition space that hosts the works of new and emerging artists. Their works explore people, their stories and their dreams.

From 12th June 2017
Every day from 6 AM to 11.40 PM at Tre Torri underground station (M5 - lilac line)


Moreno De Turco and his artworks
Moreno De Turco is an artist with a versatile creative personality. For The Gallery, he has recreated the daily habits of commuters who take the underground to get from one point to another of the city, creatively expressing the findings of market research conducted by the TNS. Moreno De Turco was born in 1987 and at the age of 23 he held his first exhibition, entitled "Piracy", which was a viral success. In 2014 he presented a social-awareness project, entitled "Smok-ink", painting a canvas measuring 60 square metres with ink extracted from 4,000 cigarettes. He currently works as a sculptor in Brazil.

Emiliano Ponzi and his artworks
Emiliano Ponzi is one of the most popular illustrators of his generation. For The Gallery, he has depicted the habits of commuters as if they were a mirror in which viewers see themselves, creating a gap in reality that allows their eyes to gaze on a dreamy version of everyday life. His work is based on the use of textures, graphic lines and visual metaphors to communicate concepts directly and succinctly. He has appeared in international newspapers: The New York Times and Le Monde. In the autumn of 2015, his illustrated first book, entitled The Journey of the Penguin, was published by Penguin Books.

Hotel VIU Milan
Milan | Zone 8


design > Arassociati


Hotel Viu Milan manages to capture the zeitgeist of the modern-day city with its progressive and sustainable architectural concept, while honoring the classic aesthetics of Milanese design with its sleek interiors. Featuring a glass façade framed with living greenery, the five-star hotel's architecture pays homage to the redefined aesthetics of the area.








Inside, blended colors and textures, including parquet oak wood floors and dark wood, provide a timeless setting for classic Italian furniture from Molteni&C Contract Division. Throw in a rooftop pool and terrace, the very first to grace a five-star hotel in the city, the Italian fashion and design capital is set to welcome a new prima donna to the scene.










The 124-room hotel stands out thanks to its exterior's vertical garden. Rendered in sustainably-sourced wood, metal and bronzed glass, the hotel's architecture is composed of undulating patterns of indentions and projections that define each story.








Floor-to-ceiling glass windows flood the rooms and guest areas with natural light and proffer a firm sense of location with panoramic city views, ensconcing guests in an inviting, home-like setting reminiscent of a stylish Milanese townhouse.




The lush greenery that bookmarks the property pays homage to Stefano Boeri's landmark Bosco Verticale project, and demonstrates Hotel Viu Milan’s passion for eco-sustainability.








A newly minted public square in front of the hotel will continue the green narrative of this regenerated pocket of Porta Volta area.

Suning pensa in grande: nuovo quartier generale dell’Inter con campus?

C’è una zona di Milano che lascia spazio ai sogni e agli investimenti (dell’Inter?). Si tratta della zona intorno a piazza d’Armi: il masterplan disegnato dall’architetto Leopoldo Freyrie, prevede un eco quartiere che sorgerà intorno ad un cuore verde più grande dei Giardini Montanelli. A questo proposito scrive il Corriere della Sera: “Tra gli investitori interessati allo sviluppo immobiliare di piazza D’Armi c’è anche l’Inter: in queste settimane il club nerazzurro ha avviato colloqui con Invimit, società incaricata dal Demanio per valorizzare l’enorme area a Baggio e già fatto un paio di sopralluoghi. L’ipotesi sarebbe di riunire lì, davanti alla caserma Perrucchetti in via delle Forze Armate, in un unico campus il quartier generale e il centro di formazione giovanile. Oggi l’Inter, anche rispetto al Milan, sul piano immobiliare ha un’immagine frammentata e poco incisiva.” Gli uffici sono in corso Vittorio Emanuele 9, la formazione giovanile ruota invece intorno a Interello, ribattezzata Suning, su un terreno in affitto e la squadra di serie A e la Primavera si allenano nella sede di Appiano Gentile.

Investimenti Suning – “I cinesi, nuovi titolari del club (e della sede di Appiano) stanno investendo per rimodernare con lo studio di architettura Dontstop la zona palestra, i campi e gli spogliatoi. Eppure il complesso resta datato e poco flessibile, all’interno di un parco che limita eventuali espansioni e con vari edifici aggiunti nel tempo, poco integrati tra loro. Vero è che per i giocatori la Pinetina è un’icona dal grande valore affettivo. Ma se il quartier generale e il centro di formazione giovanile convergessero verso piazza d’Armi, ottimizzando i costi e razionalizzando gli spazi, non è escluso che anche Appiano possa essere inglobato in un grande campus neroazzurro.”

Torre Velasca – “Sul fronte immobiliare, Suning non perde d’occhio neppure la Torre Velasca. Aveva avanzato, tempo fa, una manifestazione d’interesse, per una cifra intorno ai 100 milioni. Ma poi le trattative con UnipolSai, proprietaria, si erano arenate e a Suning era subentrato l’asset manager inglese Orion capital markets. Adesso però i contatti in esclusiva con quest’ultima sono scaduti: Suning potrebbe essere pronta a rifarsi sotto”.

(Corriere della Sera)

Well, it could be a good idea. Part of Piazza d'Armi might host the new FC Inter youth academy, headquarters... but San Siro must become the new FC Inter stadium; and Ex Ippodromo area should become the new FC Inter village with stores, restaurants, etc. I say this because I like the idea to have all together. If there is not a long-term plan similar the one I mentioned before, I don't sees the reason to invest in Piazza d'Armi.

AC Milan, however, could build a new stadium+village elsewhere. Something like Juventus or AS Roma.

Yeah, I think it would be a great idea. I imagine something like Manchester City's football academy, or the City Football Academy:

Apart from Torre Branca, has there ever been proposals for a viewing platform for Milano? I think something of the sort would be a success given the city's alpine backdrop. Examples from the UK:

On some years ago, I've heard of a ferris wheel to be placed in Sempione park... but some NIMBY associations criticized the idea.
