Milan Design Week is just a little bit more than a couple of weeks away. And with Salone del Mobile, Fuorisalone and many more events happening during this iconic week, I Lobo You gathered a list of some really peculiar but exquisite, architecture wise, places to visit. In case you are wondering about what to see in Milan, these are the buildings you need to check off of your list.
Bosco Verticale Milan
Bosco Verticale, 20124 Milano
A high-rise pair of apartment buildings in Porta Nuova, that features balconies overflowing with thousands of trees, shrubs, and plants. A great fusion of art and architecture, this building won’t go unnoticed.
Largo Isarco 2, Milano
Part of the Fondazione Prada, Haunted House is an existing building that was covered entirely in a dazzling 24-carat gold leaf, adding a bit of dazzle to the sleek and slightly muted exteriors. This building is the epitome of architecture art and of the greatest Milan attractions.
Via Marcello Malpighi, 3, 20129 Milano
One of the most beautiful buildings you will stumble upon when walking around this stunning city. An Art Nouveau Architecture icon in this What to See in Milan list, and one of the most famous buildings from this style and from these architecture artists, the Galimberti brothers.
Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli
Viale Pasubio, 5, 20154 Milano
Located in the Brera District, this is the first public building in Italy by Herzog & de Meuron, and its peculiar-shaped structure really takes the eyes off of its surroundings.
Piazza Velasca, 3/5, 20122 Milano
Torre Velasca is part of the first generation of Italian modern architecture. The tower, approximately 100 meters tall, has a peculiar and characteristic mushroom-like shape.
Via Giuseppe Ferrari, 18, 20154 Milano
The Torre Arcobaleno (Rainbow Tower) is a recognizable mark on the city and emotional landscape of Milan, capital of fashion and design.
