Gianandrea Barreca Receives the NewSchool's Global Design and Innovation Award

The NewSchool of Architecture and Design has awarded Gianandrea Barreca their Global Design and Innovation Award for his extensive and creative work. Barreca co-founded Boeri Studio (now recognized as Barreca & La Varra and Stefano Boeri Architetti), and is known for putting an emphasis on both human interaction and public art.

One of his most well known projects is the Bosco Verticale “green skyscraper” in Milan, which was awarded the 2014 International Highrise Award, and deemed the “most beautiful and innovative highrise in the world." This past semester, 15 NewSchool students had the opportunity to visit Bosco Verticale, and learn from Barreca in person.
