A public exhibition opens at the construction site of Corso Italia 23, presenting SOM’s and Allianz Real Estate’s vision for this historic office complex at the heart of Milan. Originally designed in the early 1960s by architects Gio Ponti, Piero Portaluppi, and Antonio Fornaroli as the Milan headquarters of Allianz SpA, the 45,000-square-meter complex will be transformed from an insular single-tenant headquarters into a vibrant office campus that represents the future of the workplace. SOM's design employs the most advanced sustainability, flexibility, wellbeing, and smart building concepts, while respecting and maintaining a dialogue with the original design.

Mr Kent Jackson design partner for the project said that “Corso Italia 23 is a great opportunity to reposition Gio Ponti’s headquarters building and integrate it into the heart of Milan. We were also happy that Allianz chose to approach this as an adaptive reuse project, significantly reducing our carbon footprint and embodied energy.”
