The lesson intends to explore the thin line between man and nature, architecture and landscape, crossing Naples and its Gulf on the one hand, Noto, Siracusa and the Hyblaean plateau on the other one. Officine Architetti and Morana+Rao Architetti, two firms, two approaches, two realities, two methodologies that offer contemporary solutions, between volumetric and monolithic grafts.

Officine Architetti

Officine Architetti

It is not just out of creativity and imagination that Marco Di Gennaro chose to call “Officine Architetti” the Naples architecture firm he opened after years of experience in interior design and lighting design. The use of the word “Officine” (workshop in Italian) has a precise reason: it stands for the fact that in this space in Via Luca Giordano in Naples, in the heart of the Vomero district, different cultures and professional experiences combine, producing a form of dynamism that is typical of a workshop, where everything is constantly moving and developing. The goal that has inspired architect Di Gennaro from the beginning, and which today he and architect Luigi Guidi together with other professionals who on a permanent or occasional basis work with the firm can say they have largely achieved, is to always succeed in moving from the initial concept to the complete execution of the work, responding to the needs of the client and offering innovative quality solutions also as to the technological aspects, which are of primary importance today. However, “Officine Architetti Associati” is also so much more. It can be considered a laboratory open to any contribution of creativity. It is no coincidence that since 2005, the year of its founding, it has hosted emerging and well-known artists, giving origin, among other things, to temporary exhibitions that have received lively appreciation from their quite numerous visitors.

Morana+Rao Architetti

Morana+Rao Architetti

Andrea Morana and Luana Rao studied at the Faculty of Architecture in Siracusa, where in 2009 they discussed a joint thesis on the recovery of the former Abela barracks, supervised by Bruno Messina, graduating summa cum laude with recommendation for publication. During their training they participated in international workshops in Portugal, Argentina and Italy and took part, as collaborators, in architectural competitions receiving various awards and prizes. In 2007 they won third prize in the international student competition for the urban redevelopment of Mondello. The following year, still students, they built “Casa M”, winning the “International Design Awards” in Los Angeles, CA, in the residence category. In 2010 they founded the firm “Morana+Rao Architetti” in Siracusa, embarking on a research process that focuses on functional needs, clarity and spatial order. Form and space, through the process of simplification, achieve clear dimensions and proportions in order to be recognizable and express the character of the building with no interferences. If detail is necessary for the understanding of the whole, order is the necessary condition for the recognizability of the value of designed space.
