Milan (Italy). Piazza Gae Aulenti and its new architectures are characterizing this (today) fancy part of the city. The impressive Unicredit tower, designed by the architect César Pelli (the same of the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, just to give an idea) surrounds the square, where the “Solar Tree” – designed and realized by Artemide – illuminates the place with its eco-sustainable light. Few meters from there, the newly inaugurated “Bosco Verticale” (vertical woods) designed by Boeri Architects, with its characteristic trees populating the facade.
It seems people appreciate this new corner of Milan and come here for a walk, an ice cream or the typical aperitif.
