Inserted in the Piazza Gae Aulenti, it connects, in an original way, the park, to the square, to the modern and vertical heights of UniCredit Tower. Made of larch wood and glass, through light and large spaces, the seed by Michele De Lucchi you can breathe the power of nature. Designer building that combines the use of cutting-edge technologies with a deep sensitivity towards nature and that responds to the most stringent international regulations on environmental sustainability.
The seeds fall on the earth and the roots infiltrate the ground to root and grow and grow – added architect Michele De Lucchi. Seeds have a skin that covers them and protects a living, vital, fertile heart. Inside is the essence of life and the magic of those materials that transform and regenerate what they were generated. This seed, he added, is now a wooden building, rightly, on the edge of a large city park. The rounded volume of the seed is placed in front of the tall mirrored glass towers and its soft curves surprise in the middle of the orthogonal and lines of adjacent buildings. It is immediately understood that it is neither an apartment building nor an office building and is memorized with the emotional strength of a monument, a symbol between the nature of the park and the men of skyscrapers.” ( Michele De Lucchi)
