Piazza del Cannone | Parco Sempione

INHABITS | Milano Design Village is the first edition of a one-of-a-kind exhibit entirely devoted to design, architecture and urban spaces. Protagonists of the event are Living Units and itinerant urban spaces. For the entire week it will be possible to visit five housing units, both Italian and international, and some design projects devoted to urban sustainability and renewable energies. The event also hosts the Red Bull Studio Mobile, the new recording studio on wheels: it’s an audio lab where the visitors can participate in the creation of the Fuorisalone soundtrack. Everyone has the possibility to leave a “sound print” and contribute to a collective composition. During the week guest sound designers and musicians will take part in the installation with talks, workshops and performances.

Inhabits is a 700 square meters area immersed in Parco Sempione, close to Castello Sforzesco, where the visitors of the Milano Design Week will be able to visit the installations, relax and enjoy musical events. Every day and night there will be concerts and dj sets held on a 80m2-stage designed by a studio of young architects.
