Novecento Piùcento, the renovated Museum of Contemporary Art of Milan, encloses the spaces of the historical Secondo Arengario in an Art Container and takes possession of the protected public space of the Portico below.

Suspended above the Arengo, the Art Container (levels 1, 2 and 3) barely touches the existing building, restoring the tripartite section of the original 1938 project by Griffini, Magistretti, Muzio and Portaluppi. The space between the Container and the second Arengario hosts all the conditioning systems and structure that supports the container in mid-air. The facade, of translucent polycarbonate, filters natural light ensuring optimal lighting conditions for the works exhibited inside, and can transform into darkrooms for projections and video art.

Magnifica Fabbrica

Magnifica Fabbrica is a new type of cultural institution that re-naturalizes Milano’s edge fully embracing circular economy. It is through the transformation of its periphery, that Milan and Italy speak to the world and its future.

The extended Parco della Lambretta recovers the agricultural uses of Lambro River’s banks and preserves the novel ecosystems of the site. Its polluted soils are treated with innovative forms of care that actively involve the citizens of Lambrate.

A large public entrance along Via Caduti Marcinelle opens to visitors and workers. The new spaces for staging events and performances intensify the building’s functions.
The new Laboratori of Teatro La Scala occupy a single linear warehouse 250 m long 56 m wide, 15 m high, simplifying all the technical activities involved in the artistic process while making them accessible to a broader audience. The Building updates the architecture of Lambrate’ factories to embrace the ethos of circularity: A Netzero, prefabricated timber structure, it has a minimal carbon footprint thanks to photovoltaic and geothermal energy.

Inside, the 36 north-facing skylights of the saw-tooth roof ensure ideal work conditions for a cultural, artistic and production center.

Lorenteggio Library

The new Library of Lorenteggio emerged from the dimensions of the city blocks of the ALER’s public housing. Turning 90o from the original grid, the building continues the modernity project that gave life to this urban development in the 1930s.

Acting as a bridge, the Library completes the sequence of civic infrastructures on Via Odazio, including the church of Santo Curato d’Ars, the amphitheater, the old Municipal Library, and the Mercato Rionale.

The new Library’s program is distributed on two levels. The FORUM Area occupies the ground floor, and the LAB and LIB Areas fill the upper floor. Each level has a free height of 6 meters. The generous section lends these spaces civic and public character. The pavilion with a depth of 14.10 meters allows an optimal distribution of natural light for activities related to reading and studying, meeting and socializing.

The ground floor arches create an urban infrastructure for public use. Strong and iconic, these are recognizable and functional. The space recalls the arcades traditionally used for public activities around Italian squares. The FORUM area has direct access to the park and can expand outdoors, increasing and encouraging citizen interaction with the new building.

Luftraum

The German pavillion to the Architecture Biennale 2023 is a six-month experiment exploring an architectural element that has so far received little attention: air. During this period, the architecture of the pavilion becomes a measuring instrument and its airspace a medium for experiencing climatic change processes.

Air is intended here as a historical-architectural material that can be both scientifically examined and sensorially experienced. The pavilion’s sealed, non-enterable main room becomes an investigation space in which air is trapped and architecture becomes a Petri dish.

Office
Jocelyn Froimovich, an architect based in London, serving international clients.
She works privately, with institutions and with public administrations on projects of varying scale and complexity.

Facing challenging urban environments, Jocelyn works, as required, with specialists - engineers, landscape architects, lighting and graphic designers and others. She fully exploits the technical, social, environmental, aesthetic and economic demands of architecture.

As an independent practitioner, her work ranges from residential projects in New York State and Chile to installations such as MoMA’s Young Architects Program COSMO (with Offpolinn, 2015) - exhibited at MoMA PS1. Current projects under construction include the New Lorenteggio Library in Milan (with Team BLO, to be completed in 2026) and private comissions in Chile.
