Podium Hadid

Maffeis Engineering did the study and analysis of the Podium's aluminum cladding panels, for IALC.

Thanks to computational design we first analyzed the various panels to determine which were planes, which ones cylindrical or double-curved.
Then we finalized gaps and main cuts for production using CNC machines.

The Podium has its place at the base of the Hadid Tower, one of the three towers of the new Citylife District, and it hosts the Citylife Shopping District, as well designed by Zaha Hadid, which opened its doors in Milan last wednesday and is now the biggest shopping mall in Italy, with its 32000 sqm surface.
