ECOSTRUCTURE WINS THE PLAN FUTURE PROJECTS AWARD FOR INNOVATIVE ARCHITECTURE

May 22, 2015

We are glad to announce that the project of the students of Politecnico di Milano, developed during the course held by Stefano Boeri has been awarded by prestigious Award for Innovative Architecture. Congratulations to the team!

MF3A - the design team is composed by a group of students from the masters programme at Politecnico di Milano, who started to work together at the Town Planning Design Studio of Professor Stefano Boeri.

Coming from different backgrounds and experiences we see the design process as a continous discourse on contextual interferences between the project and the given environment. A resilient project, so we think, is achieved only by constant evaluation of different perspectives that go along with intensive communication.
