The new sustainable home of Italian innovation
From an industrial area to an innovation district: NOI Techpark (Nature Of Innovation) is the new cultural and technological center in Bolzano that hosts companies, startups, research centers and universities.
With design by the studio Claudio Lucchin & Architetti Associati and Chapman Taylor Italia, the project reinterprets a historic industrial complex, also thanks to enclosure solutions by Schüco with ecological performance, qualifying for LEED v4 for Neighborhood Development Plan Gold certification.
The new technology park, a meeting place of research, culture and business, is located in Bolzano in the former facility of the manufacturer Alumix, owned by Montecatini, which produced two thirds of all Italian aluminium in the 1930s and 1940s.
NOI Techpark is much more than a research center on innovation: it is also a cultural resource and a gathering place inside the urban and social fabric of the region.
