Wallpaper Design Award: Milan is crowned Best City

Milan is crowned Best City by an esteemed panel of judges, beating off competition from Sharjah, Shanghai, Helsinki, and Vancouver.

Milan is seeing an exciting renaissance. Enlightened fashion players such as Miuccia Prada and Giorgio Armani have left their mark with projects that are developing into key art and culture destinations: the OMA designed Fondazione Prada tower was one of Europe’s most anticipated openings of 2018, debuting with works by Carsten Höller and Jeff Koons; and Armani’s empire includes the Armani/Silos museum and the Armani Hotel.

Milan’s Triennale is set to be reinvigorated by a new president, Stefano Boeri, and his team of curators. Moshe Tabibnia’s Building gallery, opened in a converted art nouveau property, has been energising the contemporary art scene, showing international names and new talent.

Another conversion, architect Luca Cipelletti’s Cavallerizze, created a dramatic addition to the National Museum of Science and Technology out of former stables. The city staged its second annual Milano Arch Week, while recent projects – Herzog & De Meuron’s Porta Volta mixed-use development, an Apple store by Foster and Partners, Haha Hadid Architects’ Generali Tower and Piuarch’s Gucci HQ – are seeing the cityscape evolve to combine its traditional grandeur with a contemporary architectural language.
