The Rome-based Fuksas Architects realised this new business building in the southern Italian city Pescara. The complex is the result of integration of two simple elements: a low height building with a punctured plane and the “annular” building sitting on top.

Here is what the architects explain:

The dynamic three-dimensional structure of the rounded building punches the straightforward structure of the “holed” lower volume, linking the two bodies in a whole element. Natural light is brought to the office levels through the floor openings. The random position of these apertures creates diagonal views through levels.

The water plane at the sixth level recalls the river Pescara where the city takes its name, creating a perfect place to meet and rest. These complex establishes itself as icon of early twenty first century architecture.

Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas has designed the facility for the dramatic 2009 season of the National Institute of Ancient Drama, the set of “Medea and Edipo a Colono” for the Greek Theater in Siracusa.

As the landscape and the scenery have changed over time, the intention contained in the set design is the reconstruction of a lost horizon, staged by a “concave blade” that reflects what is going around, which involves the public, which reflects and invites reflection.

New Church of Foligno/Italy by Fuksas Architects

The monolith

The monolith

After winning the competition Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas received the commission in 2001 to execute their design for a new church in Foligno, Umbria, which had been devastated by an earthquake. The recent disaster in the Abruzzi region gives this subject a disturbing relevance to the present day – how do you approach a town which was destroyed within seconds, whose inhabitants are still mourning for lost loved ones and whose rich architectural tradition was in many places completely flattened?

Planning the house of god under these circumstances must be very much an additional challenge.

light and shadow play

light and shadow play

The architect´s statement:

The new parish designed by Fuksas Architects is a monolith of pure geometry, absolute, in a tin box. There are two main architectural elements that are identified with the functions of the religious center, the first element, the church building, consists of two rectangles inserted into one another, the second element, also rectangular in shape but long and low, is home to the sacristy, the Pastoral Ministry of Local and Casa Canonica. A third and smaller architectural element combines the latter two. Spirituality and meditation join together in a play of natural light entering horizontally and vertically, drawing a dialogue with the sky.

Building the peace house was an initiative originally launched by the late Palestinian leader Jassir Arafat and Israeli president Shimon Peres. At the present day and in particular after the latest manifestations of violence from both camps, the opening of the building, which still bears the name of one of its founders – ‘Peres Peace House’ – comes with a bitter after-taste.
