Dropcity launches a series of installations at Milan Design Week 2022

Just a few days ago we talked about DropcityCenter for Architecture and Design, the new remodeling project of Magazzini Raccordati at Milan Central Station, born from an idea of Andrea Caputo and developed and co-managed by Nhood. An innovative idea that aims to create a new hub for creativity in Lombard’s capital. And when we talk about these issues in relation to the city, of course, we can not help but think about Milano Design Weekgoing on these days where Dropcity is a big protagonist.

A taste of Dropcity at Milan Design Week 2022

The project is still at early stages as it is easy to imagine. The goal is to be ready by spring 2024. However, it has not lost the opportunity to make its mark on the most important event for Milan’s creativity, in line with its innovative spirit. And then, from 7 to 19 June, in the tunnels that open out via Sammartini, it is possible to discover a a little taste of what this space will be.

Each of these corners is a big surprise. If the former is more institutionalpresents an area for conversations and meetings, a co-working space (already active) and a model that shows the ultimate goal of this project, continue along the path you want to find elaborate installationsmade by studios and collectives from all over Europe and beyond.

Among these, it is certainly worth mentioning exhibition about Ricardo BofillSpanish architect who died a few weeks ago, curated by Apartment Magazine. And again, the magnificent installations of KoozArch, which reflects on the concept Unbuilt in a transversal way and with a pinch of tasty irony. Or the very harsh impact of the space dedicated to the much talked about Superbonus or the mix of recycling, audio, video, industry and recovery that closes the exhibition.

Many studies involved as mentioned. Among other things, they deserve a mention Spectacular Bureau, HPO, Supervoid, Grillo-Vasiu, Log Magazine, Ganko, Parasite 2.0, Abnormal, From outer space and many many other creatives who have made their contribution to making the Dropcity space something special in this Milan Design Week 2022.

But it does not stop there!

As expected, there is an area dedicated to the various proposals conversations and meetings which will revive these ‘recaptured’ places. The program is called Dropcity mockups, as to show the public at Milan Design Week what this space actually aims to become. Two unique personalities study the list of speakers and meetings: Angela Ruicurator and researcher for design, e.g. Anna Paola Buonannodesigner, editor and co-founder of the aforementioned From Outer Space studio.

It will be a great opportunity for thinkers, intellectuals, architects, designers, creatives and in general the people of Milan Design Week to meet for concrete try to imagine what it will be like The Dropcity room. This goes beyond the simple physical concept of how to effectively transform these places.

The idea is precisely to design a social, cultural and even work model that promotes creativity. A resource that, as remembered Mayor of Milan Beppe Sala during the presentation of the project, it is really fundamental for our country. Creativity has been one of the core values ​​of Italian culture for a long time, and it is time for to engage to reinforce it.

We will talk about work and education, ecology and more social areas, social justice and how institutions can and should transform themselves. An incubator of ideas that will only be one a little taste of what Dropcity could become.
