Synopsis of the lecture
Today building requires a specific attitude as much to the physical and social context
as to -literally- the environment in its climatic dimension. Program, form and construction
are meshed in an intricate process around the notion of comfort and “atmosphere”
of spaces. Recent projects involved in the transformation of the city fabric will be presented.
