On February 23 the class of Sustainable Architecture by Prof. Andrea Parigi visited the office “Mario Cucinella Architects” with 10 students.
The architect Alberto Bruno explained a couple of very interesting projects:
The Nido d’infanzia Guastalla (http://www.mcarchitects.it/project/nido-d-infanzia-guastalla)
and the Kuwait School in Gaza (http://www.mcarchitects.it/project/palestine-school)
Two projects in which the attention towards sustainability and innovation of the architectonic language merges in one effort. Two projects with very different budgets but a similar love for excellence. Following this presentation there was a very stimulating meeting between the LDM/Marist students and the post graduate School of Sustainability inside MCA. SOS students explained about a research project on sustainable urbanism in the area of Messina/Reggio Calabria. LDM students instead explained about the microhouse project they are working on in order to develop an ecovillage in Piazza delle Cure, Florence.
