A lesson with the italian archistar and designer Marco Piva in Hong Kong.
Marco Piva

The General Consulate and the Italian Cultural Institute of Hong Kong organize an online conversation with the italian archistar Marco Piva, master of ‘Periodo Radicale’, to celebrate the Italian Design Day 2021.

Piva is one of the best known Italian contemporary architects, founder of SMP design studio that has realized numerous works in Italy, China, Japan, Russia. The archistar shares his thoughts on materials research and technology and on the value of differentiation and innovation in the creation of works that blend aesthetic beauty and attention to the needs and sensitivities of modern man, such as environmental protection and quality of life. This philosophy is reflected in particular in the works realized in Italy and in various parts of China.

The project, coordinated by the Italian Cultural Institute, will culminate in an exhibition of the works produced by students of Hong Kong Design Institute, PolyU School of Design and Baptist University during Milan Design Week in September 2021. This event is organized by the Consulate General of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute in collaboration with 5Vie and Mr. Lawrence Consulting.
