Architect and Friends on Tour

When you think of famous architects in the middle of the last century in Friuli/Italy, besides Gianni Avon, Angelo Masieri or Marcello D’Olivo also Gino Valle played an important role in the national and international architectural scene. The current exhibition at Casa Cavazzini is the first outcome of an international research project aimed at a thematic reinterpretation of Gino Valle’s activity between the 1950s and the early 1980s. The intense activity of Gino Valle, an architect from Udine born in 1923, whose 100th birthday is being celebrated this year, is widely known, but until now ma ..read more

A great read not only for architects! After many trips to the West Coast, when we think of architects from the Mid-Century Modern era who all built in California, many names come to mind such as John Lautner, Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, Albert Frey, William Kreisel, Pierre Koenig or Craig Ellwood and these are just a few of all the outstanding architects who not only shaped California architecture in the middle of the last century but continue to inspire architects in many ways until today. But Gregory Ain? Even after many lectures and tours during Modernism Week in Palm Springs or ar ..read more

Architecture and urban planning in Munich: The Olympic City!
Architect and Friends on Tour
by Michael
2y ago
Like me, some of you will remember the first time you went to the Olympic Park in Munich to watch a Bayern Munich soccer match in the stadium or to go up the Olympic Tower to enjoy the view of Munich. In my case it happened in the early 1980s and at that time I didn’t know anything about the project “Olympia” from 1972. The upcoming exhibition “The Olympic City of Munich”, which will open its doors on July 7, 2022 at the Architekturmuseum der TUM, invites you to explore the urban planning, the architectural background and much more about the project that fundamentally changed the cityscape of ..read more

Architect and Friends is very proud to have been chosen to plan their first exhibition: “Un saluto da Grado – Gruss aus Grado“ On the occasion of the 130th anniversary “130 anni Turismo a Grado“ we will look back at the early years of Grado and try to bring them to life through countless postcards from that time. For this purpose we have catalogued over 700 original postcards and selected the best ones for the upcoming exhibition. Starting from the arrival on the island, the city life, the beach life and the excursions – our goal is to trace the “vacation life” of that time, which even then ..read more

When you think of famous Italian architects then certainly first of Gio Ponti, Carlo Sacra, Renzo Piano or Gino Valle. A rather unknown, but not less creative architect from Friuli Venezia Giulia who has realized projects all over the world is Marcello D’Olivo. On the occasion of the centenary of his birth, the Civici Musei di Udine dedicates to him a great exhibition in which it combines his architecture as well as art and shows what extraordinary projects D’Olivo has planned and realized over the years. Architecture today must return to the place it has always been entitled to: to exercise ..read more

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A FANTASTIC 2021 from Architect and Friends!

After a year that nobody would have expected, we are still positive about 2020! The Modermism Week in Palm Springs in February, a few months in Austria last spring, a relatively relaxed summer in Italy, great projects completed and fantastic new ones started – it wasn’t bad despite everything! We hope that in 2021 many interesting meetings will be possible again, for example at the Venice Biennale in May, at the TUM Museum in Munich or the AzW Architekturzentrum Vienna (not to forget the Piran Days of Architecture in November). Nevertheless, 2020 was a good opportunity to reflect on whether we ..read more
