An Espresso with Peia

Giampiero Peia from Peia Associati

Combining answers and solutions derived from needs with intentional aesthetics. In a few words: to tell a story and use specific techniques and technologies to tell this story as well as satisfying the bodies and minds of the visitors, the users of the artifacts that we create. Right now the primary need is to avoid the waste of space, resources and energy. So the mission is to use these limits to turn them instead into strengths. The architect is not an artist, as Richard Serra clearly said to Frank Gehry, even when they shape space with sculptural volumes and uses special algorithms to make them consistent. The mission is our "job" that, if anything, is similar to the work of composition and coordination performed by a conductor or a film director, with similar conditions and prospects.   continua

What is the "mission" of an architect? I do not think that the role of an architect today is that different compared to 1000 or 2000 years ago. Now, as then, designing architecture means thinking about the interface between people and the outside world. What is changing very quickly, however, is the very nature of this interface. Since man was living in caves they have been made of rock; for thousands of years they have been made of physical matter, atoms more or less designed. continua

What is the mission of an architect? The architect has the task of explaining his thoughts on the way of life of people and their city. Every building we design does not exist at the time. So each building is a piece of the future. Our role is to explain, with the shapes and materials, what we think of that type of building is a piece of the future. Our role is to explain, with the shapes and materials, what we think of that type of building, of how to live today and in that context. If a message is not presented accurately, then the architecture remains silent. A project can never start from the form alone, otherwise the work will age rapidly and become outdated in a few years. continua

An architect can contribute to the evolution of the language that designs space, the tool to shape the images of the mind and feelings of the soul. Through careful observation and listening to the reality around them and the time in which they live, they can create new stories and new scenarios of ife. They have to know how to respond to the needs that each project requires, but must at the same time be brave and able to inspire through their work. continua

What is the "mission of an architect? The job of an architect is to respond to the social needs of a community. Taking into account the speed at which society evolves, the architect has to design for the present with the ability to imagine the future. To do this, we must learn to decipher the demands and the limitations of the environment in which we work, be curious, and push ahead. In this way, a project can produce innovation and, through the quality of the spaces and buildings that are designed, become the means to convey ethical, cultural and aesthetic values... continua

What is the "mission" of an architect? To inspire! Each project must be imagined as if it were a work of art that you would live in. This is also the philosophy of 3ndy Studio. Graduating from the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Venice, what do you feel you bring with you to the design table? A multidisciplinary approach and the ability to design by hand, which is fundamental in conceiving and shaping a project. While you draw by hand, you think, and while you think, you draw by hand; a magic flow that designing on the computer cannot recreate.     continua

What is the "mission" of an architect? The task of an architect is to make the world in which we live a better place. From the small to the large, from the monumental to the minimal, within every project lies a potential opportunity. Spreading quality, beauty, rigor; designing spaces, buildings, neighborhoods and cities that are able to respond to the questions for which they were born, but that at the same time have the ability to convey civic and collective values. To do this, we need to learn to see the world, to be curious and never be satisfied of the first responses, and often not even the first questions, that a project poses. continua
