ALL GOOD VIBES - connecting new architectural horizons: A new podcast that redefines sustainable architecture, projects and space according to an augmented concept of beauty. 
Promoted by the online portal Floornature and supported by the Iris Ceramica Group Foundation, All Good Vibes, on air from May 8, invites its guests to reflect on the future role of architecture and design, connecting different experiences, contexts and generations.

ALL GOOD VIBES - connecting new architectural horizons is the brand new Podcast promoted by Iris Ceramica Group Foundation and  international online architecture and design magazine Floornature.com, which promises good vibrations convertible into inspiration and creative thought for architects, designers and the rest of us.

Ideas, stimuli and projects on the theme of sustainability and its various aspects, an interdisciplinary approach that covers science and conscience and reinterprets disciplines and concepts such as architecture, design, technology and art according to new, essential parameters: environment, circularity, restructuring, resilience, social and corporate responsibility.

The format consists of a series of 15-minute episodes in English every fortnight, with discussions open to collective reflection and hosting different voices and experiences each time, featuring architects and designers, authoritative figures and promising new talents.
The same formula will apply to each episode, produced with the support of Lorenzo Abagnale and led by a duo of passionate professionals, Christiane Burklein and Virginia Cucchi, who will introduce the discussion on the topic and then ask the guest to answer questions.

Our hope is that among the topics, stories and opinions of the protagonists, all listeners will find opportunities to expand their knowledge and reflect, as well as a useful guide to identifying values to pursue that will characterize life and work in the future.

The same values that are already intertwined in the identity and design of the All Good Vibes Podcast, where the sound waves intersect with topographic and design references in green and blue, referring to the biosphere and sustainability: a symbol that summarizes and describes the commitment of Iris Ceramica Group Foundation to encourage cross-cutting studies and research, joint development and design, to apply truly sustainable models that promote ethics and a relationship culture to build an advanced concept of beauty.

EPISODE 4: Laura Iloniemi

19-06-2020

Laura Iloniemi, native Finnish, is an expert for communication in the field of architecture. She has worked with architects for over twenty years, advising them on how to lead and support their promotional efforts with a curatorial approach, informed by her education in architectural theory and museology.  She focuses on the branding aspects, starting from the identity of the architect and their practices since marketing - knowing how to sell yourself - seems to have become an absolute essential after the various crises in the building industry. (what makes it very interesting to talk to her in this special moment). Laura is author of several important books. Her first one, written in times where nobody seemed to be aware of the power of images, in 2004, with the compelling title “Is it all About Image?: How PR works in Architecture”, while “The Identity of the Architect: Culture and Communication” she guest-curated for Wiley, was published in 2019.
She will share her insights into the world of architectural communication.

EPISODE 3: Jinhee Park

05-06-2020

Our new guest will fill the atmosphere of this new encounter with her energetic and extremely vibrant character. Beyond her apparent docile compliance, which is a bit a characteristic from her Asian origins, she hides an iron will and an extremely resolute character. Very talented and endowed with great originality and analytical skills she has achieved prestigious awards at a very young age, as AIA Young Architects Award, Emerging Voices Award and the Young Architects Forum Award by the Architectural League of N.Y. and the honour to be mentioned on some of the most authoritative architectural magazines. She will tell us about micro-housing and ‘spaces in between’, a topic she has always dealt with since the beginning, facing the crucial problem of living space in our contemporary crowded metropoleis. Environmental sustainability in a tropical country will be another interesting point that will be touched in our virtual chat.

EPISODE 2: Flora&Faunavision - Leigh Sachwitz

22-05-2020

FFV was founded in 1999 in Berlin by Scottish native Leigh Sachwitz. In 1993, received her architectural diploma from the Glasgow School of Art, she arrived in the post wall city, a gigantic playground for creative people where nothing was impossible. She worked in an architect office by day, she helped create makeshift clubs, bars, art spaces for the night using all sorts of materials, light and projections. Later she would add sound and video. Her visuals, sights and sounds are ephemeral and bang on trend, mixing media and technologies, yet they create visceral experiences.

EPISODE 1: SET Architects

08-05-2020

SET Architects, a team of young architects, will entertain our audience, imprinting a fresh, innovative tone to our first virtual encounter. With their extremely precise though very concise language they evoke the notes of a precious, carefully crafted environment that is gradually disappearing. Simplicity, a key note of their creative process, combined with sustainable materials and reverence to context and identity, envisions and casts a flexible and resilient contemporary style of living. Rewarded with important recognitions, it will be for sure not a surprise if they will conceive very soon special projects that will stand out for their originality and expressiveness. Andrea Tanci, co-founder with Onorato di Manno of the firm, will be with us, as representative of Set Architects.

Lorenzo Abagnale

I’m Lorenzo Abagnale. Born in Naples, adopted by Rome, Italy. Always fascinated by good stories, no matter the medium they were told on, at some point I started to study Communication, with a Master’s Degree and other specializations, to understand how their magic works. After mixed experiences both with big brands and independent startups (including Sky, Philip Morris and TheSoul Publishing), in 2019 I started to explore deeply the new possibilities of the podcast (a medium I’ve been using and studying since 2012) as a powerful storytelling channel. Now, as a voice actor I narrate my clients’ stories with my voice. Or, as a podcast producer and consultant, I help them to find and use their own.
