Episode 7 – Weiss/Manfredi

The Architects Series – A documentary on: Weiss/Manfredi
The premiere on 21 February focused on WEISS/MANFREDI Architecture/Landscape/Urbanism, the studio founded in New York in 1989 by Marion Weiss and Michael Manfredi, a couple in work and in life: a profitable partnership based on the desire to offer a vision combining different disciplines which converge to express the exact identity of a place, responding to both its strong and weak points.

Michael Manfredi and Marion Weiss accompanied the screening of “The Architects Series – A documentary on: WEISS/MANFREDI” with a lecture on “Lines of Movement”. The conversation will address and investigate the issues inspiring the immersive installation of the same name they created for the 16th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice. “Lines of Movement” will offer the starting point for introducing and examining the conditions of contemporary design in a century in which we have a limited quantity of resources to work with, and in which architecture must respond to the challenges of climate change and social isolation.

SpazioFMG per l’Architettura

SpazioFMG per l’Architettura is the Milanese gallery operated by Iris Ceramica and FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti brands belonging to the Italian holding Iris Ceramica Group.

Inaugurated in 2007 in Zona Tortona, Milan’s lively fashion and design district, SpazioFMG is now an authoritative meeting point for architecture and the city. Since the year the gallery was founded, curator Luca Molinari has organised exhibitions on the work of world-renowned architects such as Michele De Lucchi, Herzog & De Meuron, David Chipperfield and Bernard Khoury, dynamic Italian designers such as Cherubino Gambardella, Francesco Librizzi and Piuarchand well-known figures such as Cini Boeri, Nanda Vigo, and Ennio Brion.

In 2018 SpazioFMG per l’Architettura changed its look, renewing its cultural programme with a multi-year project presented by The Plan magazine focusing on what goes on behind the scenes in architecture.
The Architects Series, as the new format is called, takes the form of a series of exclusive new videos produced in the headquarters of the studios featured, demonstrating the design methods of numerous key figures on the Italian and international architecture scene in a story told in words and pictures, revealing the modus operandi and the design philosophy behind some of the most prominent professionals in the field. The new multimedia format maintains the gallery’s original function as a place for discussion, meeting, and sharing and underlines its corporate mission of producing the outstanding cultural testimony of great interest to an audience of design lovers and professionals.
