A NEW CAMPUS
FOR MILAN.
Based on an idea and with the participation of Renzo Piano.
New spaces to improve the quality of work, study and living environments of our researchers and students.
A new state-of-the-art Campus, international, green and open to the whole of Milan.
A new source of pride for the Politecnico and a gift to the city, just as Renzo Piano gifted us his ideas.

The new buildings will house an architectural modeling laboratory, classrooms for teaching and supplementary study rooms, for 4.200 square metres altogether. The old modelling laboratory, commonly known as “Submarine”, will be removed to enable the birth of a new open space to be lived as a meeting place. A wood of as many as 8.000 square metres will directly link the Architecture courtyard with the “Trifoglio” (Clover) and “Nave” (Ship) buildings, as part of a continuum of open and closed spaces.

The project stems from an idea and with the participation of Renzo Piano, a Politecnico di Milano Architecture graduate student in 1964, provided through the captivating sketches he donated to his University. In the original drawings, herein reproduced, you can read and appreciate the concept that inspired the idea behind the New Architecture Campus, characterised by the presence of green spaces within a university environment open to the city and accessible to everyone.

ORIGINAL DRAWINGS OF RENZO PIANO

We must always bear in mind that the practice of architecture means to construct buildings for the people,
universities, museums, schools, concert halls: they are all places that turn into outposts against
barbarisation. They are places to be together, they are loci of culture, of art
and art has always kindled a small light in the eyes of those who frequent it.
