Modern and contemporary architecture in Milan

Milan, the main city of northern Italy and one of the most populous metropolitan areas in Europe, is the most important laboratory of modern and contemporary architecture of Italy.

Since the early decades of the twentieth century Milan has acquired an increasingly important role for the Italian and the international architecture thanks to the presence of architects like Giuseppe Terragni, Gio Ponti, and BBPR. After the Second World War the architectural experimentation leads to the identification of a specific own “style Milano” through the works of architects such as Caccia Dominioni, Gardella, and Aldo Rossi.

In the last 10 years, in preparation for the event of Expo 2015, Milan has experienced a great transformation that is leading to be one of the world’s capital for fashion, design and culture. Today the city is experiencing a period of extraordinary change, thanks to major projects of CityLife and Porta Nuova but also to specific interventions as Prada Foundation, the Vertical Forest, Feltrinelli Foundation, Bocconi University and MUDEC. Next to a new generation of Italian architects, as Stefano Boeri, Cino Zucchi, Citterio and Viel, Park Associati and Piuarch, the most important designers of the world worked in the city of Milan, as Herzog and de Meuron, Rem Koolhaas, Cesar Pelli, KPF, Zaha Hadid, Daniel Libeskind, Arata Isozaki, David Chipperfield and Grafton Architects.
