ACCIAIO, VETRO E ...

About the Book
Le tendenze dell’architettura contemporanea vedono il vetro e acciaio quali naturali protagonisti, soprattutto per la trasparenza del vetro, ma anche per le sue riflessioni, distorsioni, cambiamenti di colore che gli involucri realizzati con questo materiale offrono, interagendo in modo diverso con l’ambiente circostante.
Gli elementi in acciaio garantiscono la duttilità necessaria al sistema strutturale, compensando in questo modo la fragilità intrinseca del vetro.
Questo significa che ogni singola parte visibile dell’edificio è struttura, spazio e facciata allo stesso tempo.
The trends of contemporary architecture, have as natural protagonists glass and steel, especially for the transparency of glass, but also for his reflections, distortions, color changes that offer the casings made of this material, interacting differently with the surrounding environment.
The steel elements guarantee the ductility necessary for the structural system, compensating in this way the intrinsic fragility of the glass.
This means that every single visible part of the building is, at the same time, structure, space and facade
I was born in Bologna in 1963 and live in Busto Arsizio (Italy). I took the first photographs as a boy but, only in the last four years, photography has become for me an important activity, both for the time spent, both for the satisfaction it gives me. The passion prompted me to create images ranging from portraits, reportage, urban landscapes and symbolic images; black and white, remain in my heart, therefore many of the shots you find in my books have no colors. I am fascinated by the exact forms, the geometry and the hard light. I don't pretend to describe the reality with my pictures, but I try to convey just the things I see, as I look at the time of capture.I hope to succeed, to the extent of my limited ability. Greetings to all
