laFORGIATURA lives with an eye to the past, yet looking to the future. In times past - at the dawn of the last century – enlightened entrepreneurs forged special steels in this area. Today, Milan’s most modern multipurpose centre emerges, where businesses find areas dedicated to their very needs.

It is the very concept of industry that is transforming: from “heavy” industry, it becomes a laboratory of ideas, demands and needs change. The relationship with the city changes, but its roots and the identity of places remain.

With this aim in mind, we devised a master plan that achieved two fundamental objectives:

• to render a less dense context by removing certain parts of the historic buildings, maintaining detached factory buildings, which are linked by pathways in the surrounding greenery.

• to enhance the industrial archaeology, highlighting details while respecting the history of entrepreneurial excellence that characterised this area of the city.
