Where Architects Live
Dove vivono gli architetti
We are used to seeing works created by architects, those designed for other people and for the lives of others. But where do architects live? Or rather, what are their houses like? Are they an accurate reflection of their poetic design, absolute experimentation or something else altogether? Where Architects Live wants to answer these questions and, at the same time, expand the vision of domestic architecture.
The volume, edited by Fulvio Irace, Francesca Molteni and Davide Pizzigoni details eight private “rooms” of the most influential figures in the world of international architecture: Shigeru Ban, Mario Bellini, David Chipperfield, Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas, Zaha Hadid, Marcio Kogan, Daniel Libeskind and Studio Mumbai/Bijoy Jain.
Where Architects Live accompanies the exhibition of the same name at Pavilion 9 at the Fiera Milano during the Salone del Mobile 2014.
