This awe-inspiring creation can be found in the Palazzo Serbelloni courtyard. Composed of 1,600 diversely formed and decorated anodized aluminium sheets, some measuring only a single millimetre, 'Nomad' is sure to enthral visitors with its captivating beauty and subtle detailing.

Bulbous, Metallic and Coral-Like Form
An ultra-thin structure, designed by the New York-based French architect Marc Fornes, also known as THEVERYMANY, has been unveiled in a historic Milanese palazzo. This bulbous creation of metal and coral-like forms invites visitors to take a look inside.
Fornes shares his favourite experience with "Pavilion Nomad," which emerged when he watched kids playing in it. At first, they didn't take note of the unique way it was built; however, their pace gradually decreased as they realized that it had no walls like any building they had ever seen before. Similarly, we were astonished by the structure and curious to see how it managed to stay standing.
This nomadic architecture will be celebrated at Milan Design Week, succeeding predecessors such as Charlotte Perriand’s La Maison au bord de l’eau (2015), Matti Suuronen’s Futuro House (2017), George Candilis’ Hexacube (2018), Shigeru Ban’s Paper Temporary Studio (2019), and Michel Hudrisier and M. Roma’s Nova House (2022). This stunning ultra-thin structure can be viewed from April 17 to 23, 2023.
