DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

 
The work forms part of a complex and structured system of redevelopment and territorial and urban innovation undertaken for the Universal Exhibition of 2015, aimed at enhancing the Lombardy territory as a whole and, in particular, guaranteeing necessary accessibility. Based on the design by Citterio-Viel, Pro Iter and Politecnica, the intervention is composed of a series of works of art, including the Cascina Merlata artificial tunnel and the EXPO viaduct.

The aesthetics of innovation

An impressive work that blends and dialogues with the territory. Besides the innovation of construction techniques, the project is also concerned with aesthetic aspects, uniting transparency and lightness. The colour and lighting choices have contributed to creating effects of perspective and to giving the Milan urban landscape more character.
