Diversity becomes a strength, culture becomes a language, location becomes an open and participatory meeting space between ideas, opportunities and production: it is a new creative project for the city, which h+, Arci Milano, Avanzi, Esterni and Make a Cube3, together with the Municipality of Milan, developed within the Ex-Ansaldo complex. Having won in July 2014 a public tender, the group will be in charge of the space management for the next 12 years.
BASE. A place for cultural progress a 12,000 square meters with high density of talents and creative businesses. A project for the city which, on one hand creates its own productions, and on the other hand provides support and a platform for the launch of selected creative ideas, with the ability to offer physical spaces, services or strategic support.
Base Milano includes a bureau, a cafeteria Barbase and an open lounge, a new hotel/artists residency Casabase, exhibition and temporary events spaces, an auditorium, meeting rooms and artists studios. All these together, make BASE Milano a dynamic place that is open all year round, embracing ideas and projects of cultural production and dissemination,
Not by chance "base" means "foundation", the beginning of something new, but also the support of an existing project, what makes it solid. BASE will be a new place for Milan, a transversal benchmark, multidisciplinary and attentive to contemporary languages, where culture is at the center of every decision-making process- the key to understanding and interpreting the world and its evolution.
Base is a project of h+ in collaboration with Arci Milano, Avanzi, esterni and Make a Cube3
