Convention Centre for Milan and the north-western macro-region

The idea of building a Congress center for Milan and the macroregion of the North-West must be perceived as a great opportunity for the polycentric character of Lombardy. Such an opportunity may be lost by an intervention conceived in a sectoral approach, that’s composed of an “infrastructure” of global-relevance in a local situation, simply by superimposing it by itself. Taking this presumption as a starting-point, the project is aimed at verifying the effectiveness of a methodological, multi-disciplinary manner in order to redefine the problem of techno-economic feasibility by considering the typological-functional reasons and needs of the area.
For this reason, the activity was developed by linking specific territorial-logistic questions and by defining the qualitative and quantitative management of the architectural organisms that may either concern questions regarding nature, environment and landscape caused by different decisions on location or may concern, as usual, conflictual problems of the many subjects involved.
The most significant results obtained consisted in the construction of an insightful sample of relative examples of projecting congress centers, together with project-related hypothesis for locating and defining the characteristics of congress centers in the North-West of Milan, which may constitute important instruments to accompany the complex decision-making process.
