Event Details

The itinerary, curated by Laura Montedoro, professor of Urban Planning of the Politecnico di Milano, explores the QT8 district, realised for the eighth edition of the Triennale di Milano (1947) on a design by the architect Piero Bottoni (1903-1973), who graduated and later taught at this university. The design wished to reach the conditions of habitability that were considered necessary for the inhabitant by the studies, researches and experimentations led by architects in those years. The QT8 is a true experimental district, in different aspects, among which the technological innovation in building production; along with new materials and typology of construction, all examined by commissions before they were tested, the district also presented a new and fundamental design for the urban space: “Il quartiere, coi suoi esperimenti positivi e negativi, è così una mostra vivente dell’architettura moderna” [Piero Bottoni].
