Guide – Milano Design Week 2013 – 12 Aprile

We have to admit there are no fashion events on April 12nd for the FuoriSalone, but this can’t stop you from taking a walk to the University of Milan and Brera district, two of the main areas that have always been the symbol of creativity during Milan Design Week.

Milano Design Week 2013

The most important names in architecture and design come togheter in the courtyard of the University of Milan in the exhibition event HYBRID ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN by INTERNI magazine. Different cultures and technologies mix themselves in the projects that provide a plausible answer to the problems of the contemporary world. Internationally renowned architects and designers were asked to express their views making spectacular and experimental installations with the support of leading companies in the field of materials, technology and environmental sustainability. Absolutely one of the must-see events of the Design Week.

  1. Non vado spesso a Milano, pur essendo abbastanza vicino a Torino, la mia città. Sono stata in quella zona solo per un negozio di dolci che ho “conosciuto” e sperimentato!
    Post molto interessante.
    Cerco eventi del genere anche a Torino ma mi serve la guida giusta, io sono un po’ imbranata nel ricercare online nuovi eventi!

    Buon week end 🙂
