Ice Cream and Wine

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

In 2009 our friend Corrado decided the time was right to realize one of his dreams. His family owns a beautiful garden in Oleggio, a village about 60 km West of Milan. The garden, designed by Japanese landscape architect Hajime Miyajima 25 years ago, was granted by Corrado’s father  to the city as a public facility for the kids and their parents.

Take a look at them after the break…

MXP Competition

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

SEA – the company that runs Italian Airports – launched a 2 phases competition for the ‘new gate’ of the Airport of Malpensa. The brief, addressed to teams composed by architects and artists, defined a site between terminal and train station, a budget and some programmatic ambitions. The ‘Gate’ had to be conceived both as transit and pause space, function as infrastructure, be perceived as a landmark and behave as an exhibition space. Together with Massimo Bartolini and VudafieriSaverino we developed our (losing) proposal…

Since 2005 we have been working and posting on this project. Once it was completed, our clients announced they were not interested in publishing on magazines and expressed big concern about their privacy. The gardens we designed and the farmhouse (refurbished by Vudafieri Saverino Partners) host numerous artworks from the collection of the owners, so we were asked to maintain our absolute discretion.
We understood and even learned to appreciate this attitude… In the end it dismissed us from those usual efforts to document and photograph properly our work.
Later we realized that a project – to a certain extent – always belongs to the designer and decided that, as long as we wouldn’t have crossed ‘that boundary’, we could still be free to disclose our work. So we made an attempt…
