PROGETTO CMR Nuova Sede Pall Italia

PROGETTO CMR Nuova Sede Pall Italia
Editrice Compositori, Bologna

The process of renovation of existing buildings that are often obsolete and inadequate to modern demands requires an historical understanding of a development model and specific architectural typology developed in the past and now fashionable again. The growing emphasis on the environmental sustainability of buildings and technological innovation must be taken into consideration in order to initiate processes of building and urban redevelopment that respond to present market needs. Progetto CMR’s design of Pall Corporation’s new Italian headquarters, in the Milan suburbs, is the logical consequence of an approach that holds human beings as the central reference point of architectural design and considers the environment an element to be preserved and maintained even within a densely populated urban fabric.
