100% under 40 – Young designers in Exhibition Special edition of the magazine “Costruire”

← Press The complex is spread along the axis road, drawing a filiform element that welcomes, despite its distinct personality, the interference from nearby buildings. The volume on the front road goes down and protects a pre-existing unit. The system of pillars that connects the two parts of the structure appears like irregular stems  that […]

Experiment and dialogue

← Press Each project always comes out from a narrative will and “since the stage of meta-project, volumes, surfaces and materials begin to interact, influencing inevitably the architectural composition” because declining the materials, according to Francesco Steccanella, means producing vibrations.
