Starts the Second Edition of MILLENNIUM MEETINGS WITH ARCHITECTURE
With MILLENNIUM MEETINGS WITH ARCHITECTURE Italcementi offers a testimonial to the work of some of today’s leading architects, from Frank Gehry and Eric Owen Moss to Dominique Perrault and Richard Meier. It recalls a series of memorable lectures delivered by them in Italy in the last few years and also celebrates the contribution that every great designer makes to the evolution of building construction. True architecture is no longer simply a physical manifestation, it is fragmented, almost exploded into a hundred different and complex directions: sustainable technologies and materials, artistic intentions, social aspiration, the relationship with the context, to mention only a few. In the jumbled and contradictory panorama of our post-modern communities and cities, whose confusion is further compounded by the current economic difficulties, we should pay attention to the coherence of designers who manage, in this new cultural anarchy, to stay on their own original path: keeping faith with the idea of constructive innovation as a tool for evolution in our way of life, convinced they can still foster a more sensitive perception of today’s great transformations through new experiences inside the architectural space.
