in the center of milan, italian architect michele de lucchi has been chosen to design a meeting space capable of hosting cultural events, conferences, art exhibitions and music concerts. the public facility, titled ‘unicredit pavilion’, is divided into smaller volumes, with modular components that promote dialogue, participation and experimentation. located in the city’s emerging porta nuova district, the multi-purpose structure can accommodate up to 700 people at any one time, and will be fully operational by summer 2015.

as a result of the design’s multifunctionality – and the need to host multiple events simultaneously – the spaces will welcome a host of different initiatives. rooms are modular, with different configurations to allow maximum use of space. a flexible display system and suspended walkway accommodates initiatives related to art, while the pavilion will also house a nursery for 50 children.

unicredit pavilion will be an innovative center available to the city – a meeting place in support of our company and those who want to accommodate internal and external initiatives’, explained federico ghizzoni, CEO of unicredit. ‘it will be a space in line with the identity of a company deeply european and at the same time rooted in the territory, committed to building a steady relationship with the communities in which it operates by contributing to economic development in a sustainable manner’.

 

unicredit will organize several events to mark the opening of the pavilion in summer 2015.
