After the Christmas break, we once again present our "best of the week" feature drawing readers’ attention to events and buildings presented recently in the pages of Floornature with a common thread.
This week we start off by recalling a number of important exhibitions currently underway, such as "The Japanese House. Architecture and life since 1945". This exhibition about the Japanese home will be at Maxxi in Rome until February 26, 2017, and tomorrow, January 14, the exhibition will host the "Tomorrow Architecture" event with architect Toyo Ito, a prominent master of Japanese and international architecture and winner of the 2013 Pritzker Architecture Prize, the 2006 Gold Medal of the Royal Institute of British Architects and the 2002 Golden Lion at Biennale di Venezia, to mention only a few of his awards.
The exhibition “Antonio Sant’Elia. All’origine del progetto (At the origins of design)” continues at Pinacoteca Civica in Como until February 25, featuring three-dimensional models made especially for the occasion illustrating the composition of the volumes designed by Sant'Elia. The photography exhibition "Verso il Mediterraneo. Sezioni del paesaggio da Salerno a Reggio Calabria (Toward the Mediterranean. Sections of the landscape from Salerno to Reggio Calabria)" continues until February 14, 2017. The title refers to the new name of the motorway: A2 Autostrada del Mediterraneo, announced on December 22, 2016 by Anas President Gianni Vittorio Armani upon conclusion of the inaugural voyage celebrating the completion of the Salerno-Reggio Calabria highway 55 years after the work first began.
Now that the Christmas break is behind us, “CONTROCAMPO. Gli architetti italiani ci mettono la faccia (REVERSE SHOT. Italian architects put a face to their names)”, an exhibition celebrating the first 10 years of SpazioFMGperl'Architettura, the gallery operated by Iris Ceramica and FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti in Milan, is open to the public once again.
