Lignano Sabbiadoro: the City of Sport

4 August 2023

“A sustainable development, inclusive of new fitness venues and city services. A very grand project which is looking at the years to come, building the synergical foundations to plan the necessary processes” Massimiliano Fedriga, Friuli Venezia Giulia Governor.

The Multi-Purpose building is designed to be sustainable, with over 6,000 sqm of pv plants on the rooftop, and the facades covered with four skins with a very specific bioclimatic and efficiency-oriented goal each. The entire building, from South to West, is framed and protected by the dune ecosystem, which is like a scenic backdrop on the Boulevard side, and a strategic indicator to the city entrance.

Arketipo meets the Architects

27 June 2023

Arketipo meets the Order: Introduction of the n°166 Off-Site latest issue, with Associate Elisa Mansutti amongst the panel speakers.

The June issue of Arketipo is dedicated to the theme of building elements that are not entirely made on site, on the building site. In this sense, the title OFF-SITE is evocative and broad enough to be representative of the varied case studies published, and which are introduced by Arch.Elisa Mansutti's essay.

Amongst the 25 best architecture firms in Italy

14 June 2023

Italy is home to a myriad of architectural styles, both contemporary and historical. From the glorious ancient Roman ruins to the sublime Renaissance masterpieces, Italian heritage has been a beacon of architectural ingenuity through the ages. The Renaissance, in particular, marked a golden period of unparalleled artistic and intellectual awakening, with visionaries like Brunelleschi, Michelangelo, and Palladio pushing the boundaries of architectural expression and laying the foundation for future generations.

The country underwent a seismic shift during the dark years of fascism, distorting the harmony between architectural design, planning and human scale. However, in the wake of the oppressive environment, Italy emerged as a laboratory for architectural innovation, experimentation, and resilience, giving birth to a new wave of Italian creativity. Combining a thorough understanding of the country’s rich past with a forward-thinking vision, Italian architecture firms are spearheading ground-breaking designs, embodying the spirit of innovation and sensitivity to context. The following list is a selection of 25 architectural firms that have continued to retain the essence of Italian architecture.

Arcipèlago x Massimo Silverio

24 April 2023

On Friday 21st April, GEZA Architettura hosted the private music show organised galleria arcipèlago to present the latest album “Hrudja” of the talented Massimo Silverio.

Massimo has lived most of his life in the mountains of Carnia. Between the charm of the borderland and the tradition of an ancient-idiom dialect, he develops his very personal language that retracts modern music, popular song and poetry. This expressiveness is embodied through a visceral research into all that lies outside of time and genre patterns. A profound music descends into the human soul and into the landscape meanders.

Black Architecture in Monochrome

A stunning exploration of the beauty and drama of 150 black structures built by the world's leading architects over 1,000 years.A visually rich book, Black: Architecture in Monochrome casts a new eye on the beauty - and the drama - of black in the built world.

Black Architecture

Physically, black is defined as an (almost) complete absorption of all frequencies of light; it describes the impression of color when visual stimuli are missing. In many cultural contexts of the past and present, this “uncolored” color holds a special place: regardless of context, black is always met with great respect. This is also true for the current and intense interaction of architects and designers with this color. Black buildings seem majestic, filled with a special aura, and dominant, but they can also emphasize their surroundings precisely because of their lack of color. The projects presented in this volume show the great variety of approaches by the contemporary building culture to this fascinating physical and cultural phenomenon.
