Integration, interdisciplinarity, innovation. The lesson explores the design process through the key concepts that guide the integrated methodology of Progetto CMR, an architecture and engineering company. Through its thirty years of experience, Progetto CMR's holistic approach has always looked to sustainable design, in the attempt to give life to a flexible and efficient architecture, capable of interpreting the signs of change in contemporary society. Through the voice of the three partners - architect Massimo Roj, engineer Marco Ferrario, architect Antonella Mantica - and several other collaborators of the international group, the lesson continues between vision and responsibility. Each project is based on the "Less Ego more Eco" philosophy, tracing the foundations of a new form of design that denies the individual's interest addressing the community instead. Anticipating issues of global interest, including experimental patents and ever-new technological solutions, Progetto CMR immediately looks towards a conscious and context-aware innovation: at the end of the twentieth century, the Garibaldi Towers in Milan were defined as the first Italian "Green Towers” designed according to eco-sustainable criteria and parameters, zero-emission buildings thanks to solar and photovoltaic panels, natural ventilation, interactive facades and bioclimatic greenhouses.



Massimo Roj graduated in Architecture and Urban Planning from the Politecnico in Milan in 1986. He has been registered in the Register of Architects of the Province of Milan since 1987, under n. A 5467. He started his professional activity in 1982, collaborating with architects Spinelli, Morisi and Helg on the development of hospital buildings in the U.S.A. (Daytona) and in Brazil (Kuritiba) and on the projects of the San Benedetto del Tronto Stadium and a Business Center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. On his own he developed residential and commercial projects for public and private clients. In 1988 he held the position of Project Architect and Project Manager for a Space Planning multinational contributing to the development of numerous projects, including the creation of the most advanced software research center for Olivetti in Bari. In Milan in 1994 he founded Progetto CMR, where he holds the position of Chief Executive Officer. In the company, considered one of the largest Italian firms in the field of integrated design, he provides consulting services at an international level in Urban Planning, Architecture, Space Planning, Interior Design and Product Design. Since 2011, Progetto CMR has been one of the 100 largest architectural firms in the world.



Marco Ferrario graduated in Civil Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano in 1988. He has been a member of the Register of Engineers of the Province of Brescia since 1994, under n. A 2497 (already registered since 1990 in the Register of Engineers of Milan). Fire prevention qualification n. BS02497I00285. With Prof. Oliviero Tronconi and the Politecnico di Milano he contributed to the implementation of computerized procedures to optimize construction site management. He has participated and participates in conferences as a speaker on the topics of integrated design, building automation and flexibility in the organization of workspaces. With over 25 years of experience, he began his professional activity with the company Area, where he managed renovation projects and new civil and industrial buildings. He participated in the planning and management of the construction site of the Saronno-Rescaldina section for I.R.N. (Ferrovie Nord) and coordinated construction site activities for the construction of 650 flats in the municipality of Rho. He then collaborated with construction companies in Milan and Bergamo becoming, in some cases, their Technical Director. For the Groups Caltagirone and Cremonini he was in charge of the organization of the building process, from orders to site management.



Antonella Mantica graduated in Architecture from the Politecnico di Milano in 1987. She has been registered in the Register of Architects of the Province of Milan since 1991 under n. A 7091. She started her professional activity in 1987 collaborating with architect Angelo Mangiarotti’s firm on some industrial and residential building projects (Orzinuovi exhibition complex, Palermo sports center, Catania Stadium, Villa Meroni in Como, two stations of the Milan subway). She collaborated with architect Anna Mangiarotti in drafting academic texts such as “Subsidiary of architecture technology”, vol. III, Clup, Milan, 1987 and “The technical elements of the project. Transformation possibilities of the matter in architecture“, Milan, 1988. Between 1989 and 1990 she was in charge of setting up the exhibition “Marble. A New Italian Stone Age” in Los Angeles (U.S.A.) and she developed industrial design projects for Skipper (office furniture) and Artemide (lamps). With architect Alberto Ferlenga’s firm she took part in competitions and projects for the recovery and redevelopment of urban areas.
