The latest in The Architects Series. The ninth episode in the series, created by THE PLAN for Iris Ceramica and FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti, is dedicated to the New York design studio SHoP Architects. Held on Thursday June 13 at SpazioFMG per l’Architettura, the event begins at 6.30 pm with the screening of the documentary. Host for the evening is the design studio’s co-founder, Corie Sharples, who will present a brief lecture at 7.00 pm entitled “workSHoP”.
SHoP Architects is the renowned studio featured in the next episode of The Architects Series, a series of reports, created by THE PLAN for Iris Ceramica and FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti, on the most impressive contemporary architectural practices. A preview of the ninth episode will be held at 6.30 pm on Thursday June 13, at the SpazioFMG per l’Architettura showroom, on via Bergognone 27, zona Tortona, Milan.
From 7.00 pm, SHoP Architects co-founder, Corie Sharples, will present the Practice’s philosophy and expand upon on-going projects which correspond with their approach to design and the real-world. The lecture will focus on the main themes emerging from the development of each project concept, such as integrating traditional systems and materials with innovative technology, or the importance of the role of architects in the wider public sphere.
Founded in 1996, the architectural design studio SHoP Architects is based in Lower Manhattan, New York City (NY) and comprises 4 partners – Christopher Sharples, Corie Sharples, Gregg Pasquarelli and William Sharples – plus around 180 members of staff. Recognized for their ability to bring together and optimize diverse expertise in the field of design that improves the quality of public life, they challenge classic construction processes, demonstrating that beauty and technological proficiency are not mutually exclusive.
The SHoP design approach challenges the commonly-accepted model of architectural practice, by going beyond the traditional expertise of the architect. A philosophy that translates into 360-degree design, considering the site, cultural and economic environment, the client’s physical needs and budget constraints, as well as construction techniques, branding, marketing and post-occupancy issues.Find out more
