Once heavily industrial and polluted, the current site of the New Milan Trade by architect Massimiliano Fuksas has been converted into an iconic new destination. Nearly 1.5 km in length, the New Milan Trade fair is much more than a simple building. The various conventional halls, retail areas, offices, and administrative buildings are united by the great central canopy, a swirling and undulating sail that floats aboveground, creating a spectacular vision in the Milan skyline. Through a detailed set of construction drawings, panoramic photography, and short texts, the book of the Milan Trade Fair is a journey itself: join us for a stroll into the well-known and unknown aspects of this building, which is more a city than a solitary structure.
