Wilkinson Eyre has revealed these images of a new cultural centre planned for Milan, Italy, in collaboration with human-rights charity Amnesty International. The scheme, called the House of Human Rights Cultural Centre, has been designed by the London-based practice but has yet to be assigned to a specific site. According to Amnesty, the centre will be a new 'progressive public space' which will act as a focal point within the city for the discussion and promotion of human rights. The 5,000m 2 development has a striking 'curvilinear' facade, which will be created through the arrangement of precast-concrete elements. The scheme will include an IT resource centre, exhibition spaces, an auditorium, conference spaces, offices, retail spaces and a café, and will act as an educational and cultural centre focusing on the defence of human rights.
