Porta Campus La Masa

Walking onto a University Campus is a physical but also symbolic action.
An architectural element made of cement and cortensteel marks the main entrance to Campus La Masa, greeting and welcoming those who enter the campus every day. 
An iconic, institutional, monumental entranceway: the Politecnico logo, engraved into the material, symbolises the University’s deep-rooted presence in the fabric of Milan and, in this case, in the Bovisa district, now characterised by its university vocation.
The idea is to adapt, in both shape and materials, the various “Gates” along the perimeter of the Milan and the regional Campuses.
