Here at Floornature we have talked a lot about Italian architectural studio Tamassociati in the past couple of years, covering the studio's many successes on the national and international architecture scene, particularly its projects for the Italian NGO Emergency.
Mara Corradi interviewed Tamassociati for the exhibition and event entitled TAMASSOCIATI X EMERGENCY, opening today, June 19, at FAB Architectural Bureau Milano, Via Solferino 40. In the interview the architects discuss their plans for Emergency's new offices in Milan and the hospitals they have built in Sudan.
FAB presents two projects in great detail: the Salam Centre for Cardiac Surgery in Khartoum, Sudan, winner of the 2013 Aga Khan Award for architecture, a prize awarded to outstanding architectural projects that have made a significant contribution to improving their users' quality of life.
The second project is the Paediatric Centre in Port Sudan, winner of the 2013 Curry Stone Design Prize and "Giancarlo Ius" Gold Medal, presented at the Barbara Cappochin International Architecture Biennale, and the 2014 Zumtobel Group Award in the Buildings category.
In the wake of these prestigious international honours, in 2014 Tamassociati was also presented with the Italian Architect of the Year award presented by Italy's National Council of Architects, Planners, Landscape Architects and Conservationists.
