Ice Palace, was built in 1923. In 1957 it housed the first italian festival of Rock'n'Roll. The project aims at transforming this wide area, characterized by a steel cover, into a multi-purpose structure, to house events and exhibitions. Renovation will concern the rooms adjacent to the building: foyer, bar and restaurant; the exhibition rooms are designed as tunnels overlooking the central room. The Milanese ice factory, was built in 1899, close to the railway station of Porta Vittoria. It was used as a store for food and also housed an ice factory. The project redraws the top floor of the building, devising the renovation of the vaults, and planning a new area for visitors. The new distribution system is organized around a “throat” cavity containing the lifts; it redraws the front of Porta Vittoria inserting a system of stairs leading to the top floor of the building.
