Profile of Claudio Nardi Architects, headquartered in Italy. Two projects submitted by Claudio Nardi Architects have been published on Architecture News Plus (ANP).
Claudio Nardi produces architectural projects, for government offices and private clients, in Italy and, above all, abroad. Among his most recent projects are The Investments Center in Cracow (2008) (first price) and the new headquarters of the Port Authority at Marina di Carrara (2007), the Vertex tower and Office Building in Amman (2007), the new Museum of Contemporary art at Fabrika Schindlera in Krakow (2007) (first prize and now is in progress), dealing with the theme of transformation, the relationship between innovation and history, between form and function, between “product” (in the broadest sense) and communication.
Among his many projects in the fashion world appear names like Dolce e Gabbana, Ferrè, Valentino, Extè, Malo, Tod’s etc.
Every time, his work involves in-depth study, not only in his own sphere of specialization; every project, even an interior, is to a large extent developed through the use of light, sensitive materials and particular combinations of surfaces, volumes, solids and open space.
The roots of a language that is constantly enriched with new expressions can be found In Mediterranean culture and Italian rationalism, but constant experimentation and the experience of new materials and technologies, new and ancient sites, have enabled Nardi to develop innovative themes and functions.
In this view, the themes of large-scale architecture, of residential or commercial space, of art exhibition, all have equal importance and create an interior continuum of active, harmonious transfer of knowledge. He has won many prizes and awards in architectural exhibitions and competitions.
