Chipperfield’s Milan art museum nears completion


David Chipperfield’s ‘City of Culture’ museum complex in Ansaldo, Milan is nearing completion

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’.

    Makes you wonder what the back of house looks like.

  • Great to see these photos, especially as I was part of the original competition team at DCA back in 2000.

  • looks a bit like the Black Mesa Research Facility in 1998, minus the hostile aliens.
