« SEA is looking for ideas, creative and innovative proposals to give a brand new look to Malpensa Airport.
Through its competitive tender notice SEA calls upon all architects and designers, in Italy and abroad, to bring its vision for “La Porta di Milano” to life, a genuine work of art connecting the airport to the city, a grand entrance of great symbolic value filled with awe-inspiring lights, sounds, materials and colours.
“La Porta di Milano” will be a unique, iconic work, the ideal mix of art and architecture by which Milan will greet the entire world in a brand new way: an emotional, memorable gateway of such striking aesthetics as to make a lasting impression in the hearts and minds of travellers.
With this project, SEA, Malpensa and the City look forward to the 2015 challenge: a major challenge, open to anyone who wishes to participate with a project that can rise to the occasion! »
Submission deadline: September 21st 2009, 12pm (noon) local time.
