Marcello Galiotto

Architect in Venice

Taking Architecture Beyond

PRESENTED ON MAY 28, 2015
IN TOKYO @ VOL 125

"Architecture has no scale. It can go from a backpack to a city."

Student of "future master" Sou Fujimoto, fellow architect Marcello Galiotto talks about the process of not only interpreting an abstract concept architecturally, but pushing it beyond its architectural limitations. In this highly sophisticated presentation, Galiotto shares his insights in combining imaginative references of architecture, nature, and structure into real living spaces. 

Enjoy!
