IULM 6 - LIBERA UNIVERSITÀ DI LINGUE E COMUNICAZIONE
Location:
Milan, Italy
Year:
2015

The project of the expansion of the University of Languages and Communication is part of the Campus IULM and recalls the need for an overall redevelopment of peripheral and productive areas in the city of Milan, with the aim of renewing the urban, building and environmental fabric of the city.
The new building completes the transformation of the University with high quality facility service of public interest, such as the Auditorium, a Digital Library, the Canteen and the Exhibition Spaces.
The proposed building, both for its articulation of separate volumes placed side by side, and for its role of openness to the city, have the double goal to merge itself in continuity with the other buildings of IULM, and also to be open to the city, representing the will of IULM to be connected and to interact with the city, in physical, cultural and economic terms.
This functional composition is reflected in the choice of materials that had as goal the inclusion in the urban contexts in terms of continuity and visibility.
The south building, made in concrete, low and linear, hosts spaces whose flexibility makes them usable for various academic facilities such as laboratories, exhibition halls, and as venues for events and corporate activities.
The auditorium (covered in ceramics), an element of great architectural prestige, may be considered the focal spot of the complex and is designed to accommodate projections, conferences, cultural and artistic events.
