Take an Architectural Tour of Milan with ParkMapp

Released in time for the opening of the Milan Furniture Show at EXPO 2015, ParkMapp is the ultimate guide to Milan’s modern and contemporary architecture. An ongoing project by local architecture and design firm Park Associati, ParkMapp is a mobile app that identifies and geo-locates significant landmarks across the city. The app’s sleek and legible interface is divided into modern and contemporary architecture, and features pictures and short descriptions of Milanese landmarks. A “lifestyle” section recommending cultural, retail, and dining attractions rounds out what Park Associati envisions as an “active map” for new and returning visitors alike. ParkMapp is available for download via the Apple App Store, or on Google play for Android devices.

Jacques Herzog, Masterplanner of the Milan 2015 Expo, Thinks it will be a “Vanity Fair”

It seems Jacques Herzog is not particularly excited about the opening of the 2015 Expo in Milan later this year. In an interview with uncube magazine Herzog – one half of Herzog & de Meuron, the Expo’s masterplanners – explains why they left the project in 2011, along with collaborators Stefano BoeriWilliam McDonough and Ricky Burdett. In their absence, he says, the Expo will now feature their plan “only as an urbanistic and formal pattern, not as an intellectual concept,” and their plan to transform the event into “a radically new vision for a world exhibition” has been twisted so that the Expo “will be the same kind of vanity fair that we’ve seen in the past.” Read the full interview here.
