As part of Milan’s annual Green Week program, Prada Group will finance Forestami, an initiative that is meant to plant three million trees in Milan and surroundings within 2030.
Within this context, Prada Group and Forestami have teamed up to host an event titled: “Nature at the Center of Research and Design of Workspaces” at Triennale Milano.
A panel of experts has explored the positive impact of green spaces and access to nature on people's physical wellbeing and mental health, as well as how sustainable design principles can lead to healthier and more productive workspaces.
During the event, Guido Canali illustrated his latest project for Prada, the Levanella Logistics Hub near Arezzo, where the canteen is topped by a 1,500-square-meter pergola covered with greenery.
The architects were joined by other experts like Hellas Cena, medical surgeon, researcher, and Pro-rector for Third Mission at the University of Pavia and Maria Chiara Pastore, professor and researcher at the Milan Polytechnic and Scientific Director of Forestami, who discussed the health benefits of green design.
Work is due to commence in 2023.
