Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas delivered an inspiring talk at the World Architecture Festival in Amsterdam held between December 4-6, 2019, as part of a series of talks held at the venue.
In the insightful presentation, he spoke about his childhood wish to be an artist, before navigating his education toward architecture. In an in-depth address, Fuksas described the passion with which he, along with wife Doriana, designed and built buildings around the idea of surfaces, landscapes and innovation.
Watch the video below where Fuksas, as a keynote speaker, delivered a powerful address on the landscape of architecture.
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.
