Triennale di Milano is one of the top events which comes to Milan city every year with a variety of different showcases that tackles some of the world’s issues while at the same time showcasing some of the best art exhibitions that you can ever see. Today we’re bringing you a little list of exhibitions that you can check out during 2019 seen as most of the events are set to end in September.
What’s so special about this event? The XXII Triennale di Milano essentially comprises a selection of circa 100 projects from the last three decades. Many of these examples are good representations of restorative design, architecture, and art from all over the world.
Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival
This is the main theme of the XXII Triennale di Milano: Broken Nature consists of an in-depth exploration of the strands that connect humans to the natural environment. It’s the organization’s belief that by casting a wide net on architecture and design projects, this initiative will be able to underline the concept of restorative design. They intend to accomplish this by highlighting objects and concepts at all scales that reconsider human beings’ relationship with their environments (both natural and social ecosystems).
During this event set during the Triennale di Milano, you will be able to check out new installations and objects such as Alexandra Fruhstorfer’s Transitory Yarn, Dominique Chen’s Nuka-doko, and Google Brain’s Whale Song, as well as milestones like Pettie Petzer and Johan Jonker’s Hippo Roller, Elemental’s Quinta Monroy housing, Martino Gamper’s 100 Chairs in 100 Days, among many more.
Urban Center Milano 2030
Among one of the new openings set during Milan Design Week 2019 by the Triennale di Milano, there was the new Urban Center (now located inside the Palazzo dell’Arte) which until September the 1st will be hosting a series of public events organised by the City of Milan.

The Great Animal Orchestra
The Great Animal Orchestra was created by American musician and bio-acoustician Bernie Krause and the London-based studio United Visual Artists (UVA) all the way back in 2016 and it’s now set in Milan until September the 1st. This installation set within the Triennale di Milano is better defined as a meditative work focused on the necessity of preserving the beauty of the animal world.
The Nation of Plants
This showcase consists of a non-technical scientific show curated by Stefano Mancuso, a man known for being one of the world’s leading experts in plant neurobiology and also with artistic supervision by Marco Balich, the creative director of the Olympic ceremonies. With this initiative, Mancuso intends to take a whole new approach to plants as we know them “by using them not just for what they have to offer us, but also for what they can teach us” (according to XXII Triennale di Milano’s official website).
