Architects: Biography Claudio Nardi


He produces architectural projects, for government offices and private clients, in Italy and, above all, abroad, dealing with the theme of transformation, the relationship between innovation and history, between form and function, between “product” (in the broadest sense) and communication. Every time, his work involves in-depth study, not only in his own sphere of specialization; every project, even an interior, is to a large extent developed through the use of light, sensitive materials and particular combinations of surfaces, volumes, solids and open space. The roots of a language that is constantly enriched with new expressions can be found In Mediterranean culture and Italian rationalism, but constant experimentation and the experience of new materials and technologies, new and ancient sites, have enabled Nardi to develop innovative themes and functions.
