la repubblica | skyscrapers, squares and festivals where the present is future

An article published on La Repubblica by Franco Bolelli pictures the great innovative energy which characterizes Milan in these years.

Skyscrapers, squares and festivals that make it the city of experimentation: from the Vertical Forest to the finger signed by Cattelan, from Piazza Gae Aulenti to City Life, from Milan Arch Week to Book City, Milan attracts a strong innovative energy able to welcome international inititiatives.

“If the project of Boeri is – and I don’t think there are any doubts – the cover image of Milan in contemporary times, is because it strongly illustrates the nature of this city, of its way of thinking: where the aesthetics is never end in itself but it is indissolubly linked with a pragmatic and innovative design”.
Not just aesthetically succesful, the Vertical Forest combines a wise research on plants and materials with a model of pollution reduction that tackles climate change reducing the heat island and absorbing CO2, a real living ecosystem.
