NOI (Nature of Innovation) Technology Park in Bolzano has been formed from the refurbishment of two existing listed buildings and the construction of a new element, called the ‘Black Monolith’.
The new building is cladded in expanded black aluminium foam as a back link with the site where for most of the past century heavy industries have found their settlement. The Black Monolith is a bridge with the existing rationalist-style factories.
NOI is the house a wide range of innovation companies, university research institutions and training centres, with the aim of being an engine for economic development throughout the whole South Tyrol region.
