On the occasion of Cersaie and Design Week Bologna, the historical location of the Artistic High School Arcangeli, which will host an exhibition dedicated to sustainable architecture and sustainable thinking of Mario Cucinella Architects.
Opening on Septembre 23rd at 7pm with the talk “Sustainable thinking in the heart of Bologna”.
Building Green Future is the exhibition that, through the most representative works of Mario Cucinella Architects, an international architecture firm with solid experience in design that integrates environmental and energy strategies, focuses on a design philosophy that, starting from places, complicity with the environment, climate and nature, seeks to respond to environmental challenges.
The way in which MC A’s work will be exhibited will be a transposition of the work and the design method of the studio, that is part of its philosophy, and that stretches from the more olistic part of the research to the craftsmanship of study models to sketches, up to the most advanced technologies of parametric modeling and BIM (Building Information Modeling) and 3D printing and environmental simulations. Study models, sketches, graphic elaborations, diagrams, environmental and bioclimatic studies, renderings, three-dimensional images of BIM models will be on display.
The exhibition is realized in collaboration with Arcangeli Artistic High School and Frassinago Gardens and Landscapes, is open to the public from September 23rd to 28th. Free Entrance.
Two events will take place during the exhibition (Free entrance, too).
Sustainable thinking in the heart of Bologna
(Inauguration Talk, Monday, September 23rd, 7 pm)
Sustainability as a synonym for future, social innovation, cohesion and value creation. Social and environmental responsibility are topical issues that cannot be overlooked due to their importance for the quality of actual life, but also in the future. At a global level, government forces are working on projects and programmes to tackle climate change, what architecture, school education and municipal administrations can do?

The Other Space
(Projection, Italian language with English Subtitles. Italy, 2018. Duration: 60 minutes.Wednesday September 25th, 7.30 pm)
A journey through the internal territories of Italy, to rediscover the roots of a material and immaterial knowledge stratified throughout the millenary history of the country, which is its true DNA. In these places were born the arts, crafts, knowledge that gave life to the cities, with their architecture, their squares, our cultural heritage first, then the manufacturing industry. Today, cut off from the transport networks that connect the large urban centres, these areas have become depopulated and often live in abandonment.
A journey that wants to be read without fractures, to make past and future dialogue: a synthesis that contemporary architecture can represent without being imprisoned by the golden cage of History. Written by Mario Cucinella and directed by Marcello Pastonesi and Carlo Furgeri Gilbert.
