The new headquarters of Zurich Italy is located in the masterplan of the former Carlo Erba area, once confined within the block and used only for industrial production. The possibility of opening up this physically enclosed perimeter and merging it with the city fabric has influenced every design decision made regarding the building: the entire complex is conceived as permeable and an integral part of the park;
the public and internal portion of the area is intended as a passageway, not just a destination, where community space merges with private space.
