China, Italy … A history of continuous connections between the two nations that started in the XIII century from the voyage of Marco Polo with his masterpiece: “il Milione”.
A narration of the encounter of two millenary cultures.
The project for the Italian Trade Center “I Principi d’Italia” looks for the architectural expression of this historical encounter. From a conceptual point of view the project is a narration, the narration of a voyage between China and Italy and so, of the encounter of the eastern and the western culture.

The building is designed as a linear volume adapted to the urban rules of alignments and heights, and parallel to the coastline. The situation, in a second line and hidden after several 12-storey buildings, the situation allows different sea sights through the horizontal gaps between the “towers”. Due to excessive linearity (urban ordinance) and low height (3 floors) the building is proposed as a volumetric and abstract object that acquires his singularity by the vibration of the materials.

The project \”Square de l’Accueil\” (Welcoming Square) includes a public square of 10,000 m2, 53 flats, a school, commercial spaces and an underground parking. The project itself includes all the components of the city at a smaller scale. The site is a neighborhood at a strategic entry point towards one of Brussels communes, Evere. The project is the missing « puzzle piece » to the realisation of the current site as an animated liveable space.

Located on the blooming nightlife district of Oporto’s downtown, RUA occupies the ground floor of an old building facing a narrow yet busy street. The vacant space matched in many ways the traditional construction of Oporto old city center: narrow lots with high openings and ceilings, the extensive use of granite stone and local painted ceramic tiles (“azulejo”) on the façades, the appropriation of small and cozy patios. The relation towards the street was quite effective and dominant, as it could be enhanced towards the existing patio.

Located to the north of Chongqing on the banks of Palm Lake and the Taiping Reservoir, the Palm Island project is a new hospitality precinct designed by HASSELL. The key element of the design is water and it has been melded with light and reflections for the project concept. When viewed from afar, the five buildings housing six different restaurants appear to float on the lake, which is the unique feature of the project by Palm Springs Real Estate Development.

Jun Sakaguchi as a practice director of PTW Architects won a design competition for this small commercial block in Tokyo in 2006. Crowned with a penthouse rising above the 31m height limit but within the set-back line, it glows like finely cut jewellery. Most surrounding buildings are 31m high, so the penthouse enjoys open views from the timber deck terrace to the Tokyo Station area and further up to the Shinjuku district.
