Architect AIBC, MRAIC, LEED AP, and Accredited Passivhaus Designer Cedric Burgers had some help being set up for success, thanks to parents who fostered a creative culture and hard work. “In retrospect, it had a monumental influence on the young lives of us siblings,” he shares. “Dinner table discussions, often with pens and paper, where guests and family were compelled to describe, concisely and with diagrams, an idea or story.

Disco Volante translates to “flying saucer” in Italian, and is a moniker most associated with the sculptural and streamlined 1952 Alfa Romeo two-seater coupé  – a low slung gesture of aluminum sculpted into the service of aerodynamics.
