Designed by architect Cesar Pelli and dedicated to the late Gae Aulenti, Hines has proudly announced a new public plaza in Milan dubbed Piazza Gae Aulenti, an impressive public space spanning more than 161,000 square feet – a vast improvement over the previously underdeveloped, aging site.

International real estate firm Hines has announced the opening of a new 161,400-square-foot public space at its 71-acre master-planned Porta Nuova project in Milan, Italy. Dedicated to late architect Gae Aulenti, the public plaza was designed by architect Cesar Pelli of Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and Italian landscape designer Land. Piazza Gae Aulenti sits at the center of Porta Nuova Garibaldi, phase one of the 71-acre Porta Nuova master-planned development Hines envisioned for the Italian city of Milan. The project is made up of a trio of mixed-use projects, named after the three neighborhoods at the junction of which Porta Nueva will rise: Garibaldi, Isola and Varesine.
