 ... Creativity is a miracle that exists only when you know how to share it. Our studio is a special place, where this miracle happens every day.

From a letter by Renzo Piano

THE FILM
Inside Renzo Piano Building Workshop

With access for several months to one of the most important architectural firms in the world, the filmmakers saw that the Renzo Piano Building Workshop is a succession of meetings, phone calls, project reviews, decisions and second thoughts. Facing unexpected events and difficulties together.  In Genoa, Paris, New York, and Los Angeles they witnessed, as silent spectators, the miracle of creation, from project sketches to the strong physicality of a construction site.  More than 100 architects and collaborators work together at every latitude to redesign the face of our cities - museums, hospitals, schools, waterfronts, and skyscrapers.

And then, the meeting with Renzo Piano himself;  a master, inspirer of ideas, with his extraordinary ability to distance himself from a project, in order to visualize the problem and find the right solution.

This film is an attempt to restore some fragments of an everyday life hidden behind the figure of a great architect.

A Q&A with the film's director, Claudia Adragna and the film's producer, Francesca Molteni, will follow the screening.

THE PANEL DISCUSSION
Civic Architecture

Prior to the screening of the documentary Inside Renzo Piano Building Workshop, editor-in-chief of AZURE Magazine, Elizabeth Pagliacolo will moderate a panel discussion on civic architecture with Giorgio Bianchi and Amaury Greig of Renzo Piano Building Workshop and Silvio Baldassara, Chairman of Toronto architectural firm NORR, also involved in the New Toronto Courthouse project.
