ARCHITECTURE PER L' ACQUA
Organised by Vincenzo Pavan, for this exhibition the companies have collaborated with four prestigous architects to develop projects under the theme of cladding of facades and architectural elements. The result is a scenic exhibition of four stone towers that dominate a big tank. A unitary monument where the four designers can express their own interpretations on how to use stone.
When dealing with the topic of facade cladding, the companies chose and processed marble and other natural stones of different origins with advanced solutions to improve the high level technical qualities, which allowed the architects to create works of structural complexity and impressive design in accordance with the new formal languages.
Architects and companies:
Aldo Cibic & Cibicworkshop / ERREBI MARMI
