TAKING CARE IN ARCHITECTURE - Lecture by Simone Sfriso - TAMassociati



TAKING CARE IN ARCHITECTURE - Lecture by Simone Sfriso - TAMassociati

“Taking Care”, is a vision of architecture in the service of the community presented by the Italian architect Simone Sfriso on the occasion of the Italian Design Day.

Architecture concentrated on society can curb marginalization and exclusion and become a driving force for new visions, a powerful medium for communicating, an instrument through which many urban and outer city areas can claim rights, experience progress, opportunity and inclusion.

Architecture, with its specific skills, can help spread and make effective the principles of sociality, participation, health care, integration and legality, everywhere and on any scale. By embodying these principles, architecture in this millennium will increasingly have to engage with and find answers to the challenges that the city and environment present not only to architects, but to all the most responsible “designers” of the near future.

The event is presented by the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in collaboration with Consulate General of Italy, TAMassociati, and Design Exchange presents.
