Wednesday 3 November at 12:30


Speaker: Arch. Federico Delrosso - Federico Delrosso Architects

Nurture future, nostalgia for a past that may not return is an opportunity to think about a better future. Feeding the future through attention to the joy of life, the universal desire of every man and the only true purpose that a society can and must propose. "Nurture future" is an open multidisciplinary and critical debate open to all disciplines, which are invited to contribute and / or share its principles, generating new contaminations in a moment of opportunity and change. Feeding all of this will be the future. During the seminar, an excursus of projects, installations and competitions will be proposed focused on the themes of naturalistic architecture, a discipline that seeks well-being as a balance between human beings, nature and the city. The intent is to equip ourselves with a reference tool, which looks beyond the project, beyond the architecture to be used as a guideline for the design of the future.

Speaker: Arch. Alfonso Femia - Atelier(s) Alfonso Femia

Oxygen as a value of well-being and health of living and living. From an architectural point of view, oxygen can be exchanged for space and space with generosity. Global demographic increase, exodus from the countryside, gentrification, urban dispersion, housing deficit: these indisputable phenomena have exerted a terrifying pressure on architecture. The need to build quickly, on a large scale and at low cost. The redemption takes place through a process of project responsibility and generosity. 2021 is generating a new vision.

Thursday 4 November at 15:30


Speaker: Arch. Vittorio Grassi-Vittorio Grassi architetto and Partners

Vittorio Grassi, on the occasion of ARCHITECT @ WORK, tackles the theme of "Oxygen" talking about the great challenge of contemporary architecture: not to idealize garden districts in the suburbs, but to bring greenery and nature into cities. Create open spaces, parks and public gardens that neighborhood residents and citizens can share. The theme of "Oxygen" understood as ecology, health, community and sociality is deepened by the VGA study in projects such as the military citadel of Cecchignola, the Palazzetto dello Sport in Lamezia Terme, the Koà Zambon company restaurant or the masterplan of the ZIM Area in Samara.
