Castello Sforzesco revamp competition

  • Comment

David Chipperfield Architects has won the international competition to revamp the Castello Sforzesco - a complex of museum buildings in Milan.The London-based practice will again team up with local designer Michele De Lucchi, the creator of the Tolomeo desk lamp and a collaborator on the Berlin Neues Museum project. Seven teams, including Mario Bellini and Tobia Scarpa, were shortlisted for the competition, which focused on designs for the 'Museo della Moda' - an archive and exhibition of fashion. The Chipperfield team will now mastermind all six phases of the restoration scheme, worth .27 million (£18 million), including designing other exhibitions as well as the external public spaces. Located in Sempione Park, the castle complex is seen as one of the most important buildings in Milan and was last restored in the early 20th century by Beltrami.
