Architecture tells the story of the city through its buildings. The imprinting of some works is decisive not only in the creation of space and for the rising of a culture of the architectural environment, but also affects living conditions. This the case with Marco Zanuso’s Collegio di Milano. Fifty years later, his work is full of significance for us today. The strength and topicality of the original conception survives intact in his university campus, despite successive additions. Alongside Zanuso’s original 1970’s structure, the new Studio Piuarch building and the further extension designed by Centro Studi TAT enhance the position of excellence held by the Fondazione Collegio delle Università Milanesi, which has achieved widespread recognition for its high quality residential and educational services and its environmental value. “Designing Dwelling. The architecture of the Collegio di Milano” traces the full story of this complex event, not so much as a celebration but as an account of architecture’s civil function in the development of society. A story of people and projects, in dialogue with the environment and the times.
