Milan skyscrapers tour
Milan’s most exciting architectural makeover
Milan skyscrapers appear to the ultimate trend in the city, and since the Unicredit Tower, centrepiece of Porta Nuova district, flags its stainless steel spire to rival that of the Duomo, Milan has become a real point of attraction to those who love contemporary architecture.
Milan skyscrapers and more
Dramatic new developments are changing the skyline of the city, not only at Porta Nuova, which is, by the way, even expanding its glamour thanks to the new-born (December 2016) Feltrinelli Foundation building, the latest creation in the area from Herzog&deMeuron.
The former Milanese trade fair area as well is all new, thanks to a trio of international stars –Zaha Hadid, Daniel Libeskind and Arata Isozaki. Each of them the creator of an exciting business tower (2 of which already completed and towering the city view) and of the surrounding residential complex at City Life, they gave a real new start, and a daring one, to a central yet once scarcely exploited, area of Milan.
Starting from the Nineties, Universities are also contributing to this general makeover with their new sites, like that of IULM, with its ultra-modern campus, and even more, Università Bocconi, who’s latest extension designed by Irish Grafton architects, won the World Building of the Year Award in 2008.
The new off the beaten path
If you really are a fan of contemporary, extend your tour to the Bicocca district and Portello district. Also, as it is in the nature of Milan to hide its gems, just wonder around the city centre, you’ll find some real beauties. Our suggestion? Have a look at Via Gorani, next to San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore, where a Medieval tower overlooks the remains of the Roman Imperial Palace on the one side, and is flanked by the newest and most elegant residential buildings on the other.
