Nemo Monti and Corriere della Sera, an Italian daily newspaper, have created a project to create a new model of the “newsstand for the 21st century.” The goal of the project is to give the newspaper supply and distribution chain new venues for dialoguing with the public, restoring newsstands’ centrality in today’s urban landscape.
Seven architecture and design firms are participating in the competition. The firms will rethink what the traditional newsstand looks like, but also how it should relate to urban space and the services it offers to the public.
The winner will be selected by a jury of well-known personalities, chaired by architect Mario Bellini. The winning project will be created and presented during Milan Design Week 2020.
Below are the seven firms and renderings of their designs.
