Big architects:

The CityWave project marks the final step towards the completion of the 366,000 square-meter CityLife district:

“The large catenary canopy of CityWave unites the last two buildings of CityLife with a single sagging gesture. The solar tiles power the workplaces within, while the wooden underside covers a new public space underneath. Like a contemporary interpretation of the massive covered public space of Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle II, the solar canopy offers the citizens of Milan a shaded and sheltered urban space for the life and culture of this vibrant new part of the city. The resultant silhouette unites indoor and outdoor space in a form of weightless monumentality.”
