I prefer to define my study as a laboratory, be cause in my opinion architucture is art, or as R. Byron said:

Architecture is the most universal of the arts. It enshrines the past in a form more extensive, more varied, and more easily apprehensible that any otherĀ form of culture. It exhibits the taste and aspirations of the present to all who traverse the streets of a city and raise their eyes as they go. Paintings are in galleries, literature in books. The galleries must be visited, the books opened. But buildings are always with us. Democracy is an urban thing, and architecture is its art. Architecture is the most universal of the arts.

Fundamentals of my work are always a deep analysis of the context and a constant research, in order to offer the best solution concerning integration into the landscape and the only use of local materials.

Landscape influences my design but not the contrary
