From the architect. Our friends at Richard Meier & Partners have shared with us their latest completed project: Italcementi i.lab in Bergamo, Italy. The building, a new research and development center for Italcementi, one of the top five cement manufacturers in the world, is a showcase for sustainable design, already attaining one of the first LEED Platinum accreditations in Italy.  

According to the firm, Italcementi i.lab reflects not only the company’s commitment to sustainability but also “the company’s position of leadership, technological advancement and commitment to research and innovation in the use of concrete.”

In the Press Release, Dukho Yeon, Design Partner-in-charge, describes the project: “i.lab is our firm’s most sustainable building to date embodied in sculptural and dramatic, but simple forms showcasing the possibilities of concrete in perfect balance with the technical purpose of the building.”
