Palazzo Italia awarded by World Architecture Awards
Palazzo Italia – Italy’s National Pavilion of the EXPO 2015 in Milan – is now hosting the Human Technopole Foundation that is awarded by the 34th World Architecture Awards (WA Awards) within the category WA Realised Award.
The WA Awards highlights and recognizes remarkable projects that have the potential to evoke exciting questions about contemporary architectural discourses. Systematica provided fully-fledged pedestrian studies regarding both horizontal and vertical circulation.
Palazzo Italia represented the national pavilion at World Exposition (EXPO) 2015 in Milan (Italy). It showcases the country’s excellence, culture and traditions related to food and nutrition. The pavilion consisted of around 14,000 sqm exhibition space, shaped by four volumes and an internal square as the heart of the project. The work is characterized by experimentation and innovation in terms of design, materials and technologies used.
Systematica hereby assessed the accessibility and capacity of pedestrian flows inside and surrounding Palazzo Italia, developing an in-depth analysis of all exhibition and service areas. The main objective of this analysis was to identify the LoS – Level of Service, and to provide an average LoS ensuring a pleasant visit of the spaces.
