Monday, October the 5th, at 6.00 pm the new book by Mario Cucinella Architects, Building Green Futures, edited by Anna Mainoli and published by Forma Edizioni, will be presented at the San Fedele Gallery in Milan. The limited presentation will be also accessible through a live broadcast on Mario Cucinella Architects' Facebook page.
Going through the pages of this new book, Mario Cucinella invites us to reflect on the future of architecture by taking a journey through the history of humanity and, thanks to the precious contribution of Professor Stefano Mancuso, trough the surprising realities of the plant world.
The volume investigates, through a collection of the most recent projects and the most representative architectures of MC A studio, the possible answers that architecture can provide towards the global challenges of the present and near future.
Every project tells a story that is the result of empathy with climate, places, history, and communities and is described in this publication through a metaphorical dialogue between architecture and the plant world. The book represents the expression of the firm collective intelligence.
Each architecture is illustrated through images, drawings, and thematic insights that allow various levels of reading, to address a broad audience of readers sensitive to architecture as a form of culture and public heritage.
