Thomas Phifer: light as an essential element of the project.

Thomas Phifer is a New York architect who lived in Rome for a short time. During his career he had the opportunity to build various exhibition structures and some private homes. Although the factors involved in designing a museum structure are very different from those of a private home, it is possible to find some recurring traits in Phifer’s architecture. Two of these are certainly the great attention to the choice of materials and the use of light as a real design element.

Silvia Camporesi: the art of photographing one’s own art

Actually the interview with Silvia Camporesi was carried out a few months ago.

Lorenzo zandri: photographing the human dimension of the project.

Lorenzo Zandri was born in Rome in 1992. He is a young photographer who trained as an architect and preferred to build images rather than things.
Today, for both work and personal related reasons, he lives between Paris and London and travels play a great role in his work. Lorenzo Zandri has a cultured style explicitly turned to the past, but all this is not the aim of his work but only the means to discover the human dimension of the subjects he portrays.
