“CENTRO*Arezzo coop.fi” wins the first edition of the “CNCC design Awards”

CENTRO*Arezzo coop.fi has recently been awarded with the CNCC Deep Renovation & Design Awards, the new prize promoted by the National Council of Shopping Malls.

Set in the peripheral area of the Tuscan city, the shopping centre received the awards for the category “building renovation”, related to commercial fabrics ranging from 5.000 to 30.000 sqm. The jury recognized in this project the following distinguishing marks: “The CENTRO*Arezzo coop.fi stands out as a state-of-art architecture and suggests a sustainable renovation, based on green matters, starting from the topic of energy efficiency and resource optimization. The result is an exemplary shopping mall in terms of technology, sustainability and architectural design”. In 2014 Unicoop Firenze commissioned Piuarch with the complete restyling of the aesthetic and functional relationship between the commercial building and the city. The aim was to offer a new shopping experience, without any interruption of the business activities. The new concept by Piuarch drawns an iconic building, consisting of a linear volume whose white façade – enriched by surprising optical effects – becomes an urban landmark. The renovation project has started with the examination of the relationship between the Coop brand identity and the building envelope and the main focus was put exactly on the graphic elements of the logo. First designed back in 1963 by Albe Steiner and then updated in 1985 by Bob Noorda, the Coop logo is composed by two fixed elements: the circle and the unbroken strip. By breaking it down into graphic signs, a constantly changing and dynamic visual pattern has been created, which, when applied to the façade, completely envelops it and thus ensures the new identity to the shopping mall.

Piuarch presents “Facades, the Skin of Architecture”

The program for Brera Design week - April 4th–9th – will include a facade gardening installation and a show on the facades that Piuarch has designed in 20 years of work

Milan, April 4th – 8th, 2017. As part of the Brera Design Week, Piuarch presents an installation and an exhibition called “Facades, the Skin of Architecture”.

The facade of the building where Piuarch is located – in the courtyard at Via Palermo 5, Milan – will hold a façade gardening installation, in which a garden decorates the entire front of the building from ground to roof.

Crossing the threshold of the Studio, one enters the show that illustrates the formal and conceptual research that Piuarch has devoted to the theme of facades throughout its history, with images, drawings, illustrations, prints and models that tell the story of facades as a real stylistic genre.

TALK of Architecture and Light: Lightness

VELUX and Edilportale presents Talk di Architettura e Luce (Architecture and Light Talk), a four days event of meetings with the big names of architecture that will talk about designing with natural light.

March 8th 2017, at 11.30AM, at Spazio VELUX at MADExpo, Gino Garbellini will be hosting with a Talk entitled LIGHTNESS,  light as a 'fourth dimension'.

"Light is the fourth dimension in every projects. Design element, it is the premise and consequence of the artistic choices. We can say that the light is one of the languages through which we compose our visions and define the character of our buildings.

It is a subject itself: present, permeable, persistent, in becoming as natural in its manifestations induced by the use of technology. Piuarch always observes the light dedicating to it the incessant analysis and reflections. In the facades such as interior courtyards, on reflective surfaces such as transparency by allowing filter can freely through space."
