Tall Buildings Urbanism – 6th Iuav International Conference – CityLife Milan

Locandina 19 aprileTuesday April 19th 2016. Focchi sponsor of the 6th Iuav International Conference in the new CityLife development of Milan. Organized by Professor Aldo Norsa, promoted by Iuav University of Venice and the Politecnico of Milan, with the patronage of the Council on Tall Buildings and Hurban Habitat (http://www.ctbuh.org/) and supported by  CityLife.
The conference addressed two main issues relating to the design and construction of tall buildings involving academics, designers, builders, town planners and researchers.
Then focus on the ex-novo construction of tall buildings, the flows management, infrastructures to common areas and insigths on existing heritage, with recovery, renovation, retrofit and deconstruction.
While being constructed a few skyscrapers, Italy has accumulated an extraordinary expertise to offer to the world. One among all Allianz Tower by Isozaki-Maffei in CityLife Milan, Italian’s tallest skyscaper, which amezes for its  lightness and the technology of a glass architecture that makes the city even brighter, reflected on the façades manufactured and installed by Focchi Group.

«Italy is pure inspiration!» has affirmed the great architect Daniel Libeskind called on stage by Professor Aldo Norsa. “Young architects today must have the strength to assert their opinion and move on, thinking of the future, without forgetting the tradition.”

«Culture, identity, authenticity» perhaps express the synthesis of the conference, as pointed out in the opening by John Iorio, founder of J & A Consultants: Zigurat. The man in history has always tried to build something high to protect himself or to assert himself. Today more than ever the human scale is the new measure that defines the space”.  High or very high that they are “the skyscrapers in Italy,” said Patricia Viel of Citterio & Viel “are always and yet heroes.”

A conference that addressed urgent issues of the sector, comparing with an unusual rhythmic and elegant balance, soul and technicalities, looking at “modern as something of which we are heirs”, as wisely recalled by Maria Antonietta Crippa of Politecnico of Milan.
