The RIBA Gold Medallist won a contest to transform the former steel works almost fourteen years ago.
The project will create a new home for Milan’s Centre for Advanced Studies of Visual Art and the Centre of Non-European Cultures. A puppet workshop and archaeological museum will also be included.
Due to open next year, the scheme features a number of zinc-clad buildings arranged around a central curved glass ‘lantern’.
