iGuzzini and MAXXI Architecture, part of Italy's most prestigious museum of contemporary art, have partnered together on a new project entitled LightOn. From February to July 2015 four major international architectural firms will present the meaning of their work, the topics, themes and contexts defining their professional careers.
Each designer will deepen with his visionary and contemporary point of view the relationship between form, technology and light. The conferences will take place both in Recanati and in Rome and will be admission-free (limited seats available - read below).
The protagonist of the first appointment is Kjetil Thorsen Trædal, Founding Partner of Snøhetta. Thorsen has received numerous international awards for the design of public buildings around the world including the museum built for the Winter Olympics in Lillehammer in Norway, the new library of Alexandria and the Oslo Opera House. In 1986 he was one of the founders of the most important architecture gallery of Norway, the Galleri Rom.
