The facade of the building where Piuarch is located – in the courtyard at Via Palermo 5, Milan – will hold a façade gardening installation, in which a garden decorates the entire front of the building from ground to roof.

Crossing the threshold of the Studio, one enters the show that illustrates the formal and conceptual research that Piuarch has devoted to the theme of facades throughout its history, with images, drawings, illustrations, prints and models that tell the story of facades as a real stylistic genre.
