MCA has designed Pioltello, near Milan, the new headquarters of the 3M company. The building is the first part of a masterplan of the area conceived by MCA in 2005 to be realized. It is a terraced, linear structure, 105 meters long by 21 wide, varying in height from two to five floors.
The optimized shape and orientation provide effective environmental control: the east and west facades are designed with special glass and shading. The south side has a series of terraces with pergolas that offer shaded areas.
