Andrea Maffei Architects

Andrea Maffei Architects
Andrea Maffei Architects was established in 2005 in Milan. Andrea Maffei opened his own studio after an intense partnership with Japanese architect Arata Isozaki which began in 1997, when he moved to Tokyo and became a partner in Isozaki’s studio until 2004. In these seven years he worked on a number of projects and oversaw construction of projects such as the Palahockey for the Turin 2006 Winter Olympics and the renovation of Piazza d’Armi, also in Turin.
After founding Andrea Maffei Architects, he came up with the masterplan for the Citylife complex and designed the Citylife Tower, a 207 metre high tower with 50 floors due to be completed by the end of 2014, also designed with Isozaki.
Recent projects which are still underway and have won competitions in Italy include the new railway station in Bologna (2008), including 90,000 square metres of mixed space to be constructed above the tracks of the existing railway station, and plans for the new offices of the Province of Bergamo (2009) and for a new public library in Maranello, opened in November 2011. Abroad, Maffei was short-listed in the competition for Montecarlo Sea Land expansion (2007-2008), involving construction of two artificial islands with over 350,000 square metres of residential and hotel space, and was awarded an honourable mention for Chorzow stadium (Poland, 2013).
In addition to his professional career, Maffei writes in a number of architecture magazines. Since 1997 he has published articles on contemporary Japanese architecture in the architecture magazine "Casabella". He edited the monograph entitled “Toyo Ito. Le opere, i progetti, gli scritti” (“Toyo Ito: Works, projects and writings), published by Electa in 2003.
