Acknowledgments

‘Italian experience, foreign architects: Stories of those who pulled it off’ is a cross-section of promising international architects born in the 80s who, thanks to—or in spite of— studying in Italy were able to open their studios and design inspiring works.

 

Which are the most significant lessons they learned?

What are the values they apply to their daily work?

Which are their difficulties and how do they defeat them?

What do they believe should be done now?

 

The talks are an instant portrait of ateliers on the verge of success; they can be divided by culture, location, values, and goals but are united by young, fast-growing, and influential characters. Some of them are architects-artists; fresh graduates students with behind international exhibitions and publications; sensitive designers in search of timeless values; founders of multinational offices in the intent to conquer an entire slice of the market. ‘Italian experience, foreign architects’ lays the foundations for grasping the difficulties of the 80s’ generation from a new and fresh perspective, giving a potential direction and ways to succeed.
