December 14, 2022

The Cathedral by Populous, chosen by AC Milan and FC Internazionale Milano to replace the San Siro as the clubs’ new home, has been named “Highly Commended” at The World Architecture Festival 2022.

The project was presented to a jury of acclaimed architects at the event in Lisbon, Portugal, in November, having been selected as a finalist in the Future Project: Leisure Led Development category.

Launched in 2008, the Festival has been bringing the global architecture community together in different cities around the world for over a decade, and its awards programme is widely recognised as one of the most prestigious in the industry.

The Cathedral is planned to create a world-class home for AC Milan and FC Internazionale Milano and form the centrepiece of a proposed new San Siro District, a sustainable, 365-days-a-year destination with over 110,000 sqm of green areas, which will provide new facilities for fans and the community.

Christopher Lee, Managing Director – Populous, EMEA, said: “The Cathedral is a stadium of Milano and for Milano; an iconic and enduring piece of architecture that draws on the history and aspirations of this great city. We are incredibly proud to see our design recognised at WAF amongst so many other exciting projects from around the world.”
