Piuarch celebrates the dynamic spirit of Milan with a visionary concept for the roof of the Porta Nuova Building, designed by the Milan-based studio as the result of a competition, and completed in 2013.


The sinuous form of the complex of offices and shops now gains an idea that fits into Milan’s fast pace: a roof transformed to create a green terrace.


The “rooftop garden” is seen as a multifunctional space: a vegetable garden open to the public, with dining facilities; a place for performances and events; and an outdoor fitness club for exercise and meditation.
