On QN Itineraries, an interview with Stefano Boeri addresses the design philosophy of green architecture of the studio Stefano Boeri Architetti and the idea of Green Obsession.
“In Italy we have an extraordinary heritage of abandoned and semi-abandoned historic centers. These historic centers of internal areas – which have been cities for centuries – continue to give us drinking water, clean air and even the best food. And therefore the thing must be considered in the future is not decentralization, but a reciprocal relationship with the city, which will remain an important engine of development in any case. We are trying to apply this theme as a professional studio in some areas of Central Italy hit by the earthquake or, with the Milan Polytechnic, in Val Trebbia and in other Italian regions “, says architect Boeri.
