Daniele Borin from Italy
I have an associated studio about architecture and set design with my partner, Mattia Vittori architect, since 2001. We are based in Milan, Italy, but we had worked all around the world with different projects, most of them about housing and event set design.
Our skills are various and we are able to work on architecture on different scale, product design, graphic design and set design, with always the same approach: a sartorial method to the project to reach always the best design solution specifically for the client. Peculiarity of our method are a massive research about space diagrams, handle the light like an essential design element and a knowledge about traditional and innovative construction materials used like expressive elements.
I worked on this like a personal project
Architecture is the skilful, rigorous and magnificent play of volumes assembled in the light. (Le Corbusier). The architect is very often the subject in the middle of various players: client, lenders, municipality, friends, opponents, builders, craftmen, technicians, etc. A good design is possible when you find the way to profit from everyone to find solution that each single cannot see.
Competition is the moment to be involved in different themes and scale, sometimes to do pure research with less constraints of real world, sometimes to confront with projects about your professional interests to indagate new solutions.
Keep your thinking up
