Architecture is a surface. Architecture can be a place that artists can use. – Massimiliano Fuksas

Elaborating on the key projects that have shaped his journey, he took the audience through the making of the Admirant Entrance Building in Eidenhoven, Netherlands; the Nardini Research Centre, Italy, the Ferrari Operational Headquarters and Research Center in Maranello, Italy, and the Tbilisi Public Service Hall, Georgia. Among other interesting projects, he also discussed the Bory Mall in Slovakia and New Milan Trade Fair in Italy.

Fuksas discussed at length the collaborations with experts from the construction field, and the idea of how people are the centre of his practice and projects.

Doriana and me, we always try to design the landscape of architecture. That is the life for us. – Massimiliano Fuksas

Along with architecture, he spoke passionately about family, and it was clear that the two are deeply intertwined for the Italian architect and his way of thinking and designing.
