Perseo Expo district

by GaS Architects / Pero, Italy


This building is located just outside Milan, near the road and subway network serving the Rho-Pero Trade Fair district and the future Expo 2015 area.The geometry of the structure comes from an analysis of the potential connections to nearby activity, and how this activity would naturally relate to the new building. The structure, built in stainless steel and glass, was designed to the requirements of national and international companies in terms of office flexibility and efficiency, with the intent of allowing various potential tenant configurations. Of great importance in the project has been sustainability, a requirement both of the client and of updated local regulations. This has become the signature of the building and has determined much of its architectural character.
