Massimiliano Fuksas

Home to me is… “an open space (in the city, in the country or at the sea) that should always be able adapt to the needs of the moment.”

Design to me is…: “incorporating emotions and people’s social needs.

A design project that you love and why… “Rome, her stratifications layers, compression of spaces, and all the many historical buildings works in this beautiful city.

Five lesser known facts/trivia about you and your work… My early aspirations were to become a poet. Then, this ambition evolved in to the desire of being an artist…during the university I have understood that architecture is the simplest interpretation of art and culture. The concept of building often starts with a painting and when I don’t paint I make a model. I feel a real European citizen based on my origins, my studies and my job.
