Tokyo presents MIND to celebrate Italian design

The presentation of the MIND (Milan Innovation District) project was hosted at the Italian Cultural Institute in Tokyo to celebrate the Italian Design Day in the World. MIND is the new innovation hub that will be built in the area where the 2015 EXPO was located. It covers a million square metres and it is just a few minutes away from the heart of Milan. It is designed to be a new city extraordinarily well connected to the rest of Italy and Europe. A true model of a future city that will be smart, innovative and sustainable – a gateway to Italy.
Alberto Mina, head of International Relations at Arexpo – the company that owns the area partly owned by the State, the Region of Lombardy and the Municipality of Milan – met with several Japanese companies and industrial groups. The project features three major works: the Human Technopole research centre on genoma and big data, the new Galeazzi Hospital complex, a top-level structure in the field of orthopaedic research and treatment, and the new Campus of Milan University, which will host all its scientific departments.
The conference entitled “Major Events as the Premise for a New Urban Vision” enjoyed the participation of, among others, architects Susanna Tradati and Atsushi Kitagawara, who shared the 2015 EXPO experience with an eye on the upcoming big events that Japan will host, from Tokyo’s Olympic Games in 2020 to the 2025 Osaka Expo.
