Massimiliano Fuksas at 361 Degrees: The Design Conference 2015



Massimiliano Fuksas at 361 Degrees: The Design Conference 2015

Seven years since its inception, the 361 Degrees conference has evolved to become one of the most sought-after platforms to further relevant dialogues around the subjects of architecture and design in India. It encompasses all emerging practices of architecture, and creates an environment that encourages new ideas. For the 8th edition, the theme of the conference is Dis.Architecture: Discourse, Intuition and Syntax in Architecture, aiming to discuss the varied philosophies of architecture with the help of experts in the field from around the globe.

Massimilano Fuksas is the inaugural speaker. His lecture will take the audience us through his evolution as a designer in technique, material use, sensitivity to function and keen dedication to accept challenges. His design philosophy ranges from creating gaps to allow light passage whilst creating tension, to enforcing water-bodies which he believes soothes both the environment and the user, onto covering large spans with what appears to make the structure float. This reflects his deep understanding and creativity with materials, ranging from concrete, wood to copper and glass to tensile fabrics. His work ranges from community spaces to luxury brand projects showing his design dynamism and sensitivity.
