maurizio varratta’s new ‘prysmian headquarters‘ in milan is a complex building with a simple image created through the transformation of an industrial building that has been completely demolished and then completely recycled. the new headquarters has the same geometry of the previous building but it has been reworked according to the new requirements; it reuses the old foundations without additional excavations especially reusing the sediment without consuming virgin soil and at the same time helping to mend the degraded urban fabric.
