BEIC - European Library of Information and Culture
Milano | Lombardia | Italy

The European Library of Information and Culture (BEIC) will be a new generation cultural center designed for Milan and Italy and with an international, eco-sustainable and digital outlook. The City of Milan had already launched an international design competition aimed at finding the best design proposal. The winner will be announced on July 2022 by a commission of five members, representatives of the Municipality of Milan, the BEIC Foundation, the Orders of Architects and Engineers of Milan. The project will be mostly financed by the Italian government, with a figure amounting to 101.6 million euros, which can be integrated to further public or private funds.

The site that will welcome the cultural complex lies between viale Molise and via Cervignano. The new structure, facing a new public park and served by local public transport, will be capable to welcome more than 3 million books and an auditorium with 2,000 seats. A center that will have to respect the environment, with zero impact, use every possible technology, spread knowledge and also be the seat of cultural initiatives aimed also at young people. The BEIC, indeed, will have spaces dedicated to games, several thematic and interdisciplinary sections, a digital department that can be used as an applied research center, a robotic warehouse, a space called "Imaginarium" where to stimulate creativity and imagination of children.
