interviews, these exchanges between Massimo De Conti and some of the world’s
top architects and designers form an ensemble of insightful and irreverent
conversations on architecture, creativity, and style.
De Conti approaches each designer and
architect from different angles, offering fascinating glimpses into the
experiences that have influenced them in their journeys from regional success
to international recognition and their seminal roles in today’s architecture
and design scene.
In his portraits of these contemporary
creatives Massimo De Conti reveals the extraordinary mix of challenges,
education, successes, and failures that has contributed to each architect or
designer’s unique style.
Featured architects and designers include Philippe
Starck, Antón García Abril, Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, Zaha Hadid, Michael
Young, Amanda Levete of Future System, Sean Godsell, Massimiliano Fuksas, and
John Pawson, among many others. Each conversation is accompanied by a portrait
of the architect or designer, a short curriculum vitae and photographs of their
most iconic project.
