Feltrinelli Porta Volta / Herzog & de Meuron • . A Milanese Project: Scale, Structure and Repetition The new buildings are inspired by the simplicity and generous scale of historic Milanese architecture as Ospedale Maggiore, Rotonda della Besana, Lazaretto and Castello Sforzesco. They are also inspired by the long, linear Cascina buildings of traditional rural architecture in Lombardy, which already were an important reference in Aldo Rossi’s work, for instance his residential building in Gallaratese. This is why we propose an elongated and narrow architecture which in a vaguely figurative way introduces a roof which melts into the facades. The structure expresses the geometrical conditions of the site in a rotation of its members and balances between transparency and spatial definition. Façade, structure and space form an integrated whole. The redefinition of Porta Volta will intrinsically be a Milanese Project, taking up themes of Milanese urbanism and architecture, which through the course of history have led to a series of emblematic buildings for which the City of Milan is renowned. . #minimal_lookup #skyscraping_minimal #arkiromantix #lookingup_architecture #skyscraping_architecture #architecture #architecturestudent #modern_minimal #pocket_architecture #pocket_minimal #minimalmood #architettura #estructurarte #herzogdemeuron #archie #ptk_architecture #arkiminimal #architecture_minimal #milan #modernarchitecture #espacioenforma #fondazionefeltrinelli #fineart_architecture #archdaily #ptk_minimal #rsa_minimal #architecture_view #architecture_hunter #minimalism #architecturephotography
