All the works designed by Archicura seem somehow connected by an almost invisible thread, or even a common approach shared by PAOLO DELLAPIANA and collaborators, who constantly present new, different and unexpected projects and results.

The core of their architectural aims, and the constant focus of their attention is the emotional factor which every building can and should  have towards its users. This is the key element that contributes to the physical and mental wellness that a construction should always provide through its shape, the materials of which it is made, its function and relationship with the surrounding environment.  This allows them to escape being labelled into categories, and turns their work into something quite atypical that cannot easily  be constrained into simple descriptions, “schools of thought” or trends.

Since 1994, this philosophy has inspired many projects that have allowed the architects to experiment in all the different areas of design, thus constantly making delicate, meaningful and poetic statements that have always been clear and sharp.

They have managed to unravel centripetal forces that take their works at the core of architecture itself. This is an architectural style that often develops in silence. It embraces nature, the surrounding environment and the sky. It has its roots in vineyards, it opens the doors to those who will experience this architectural style first hand.

The path they have so far walked, and the meaningful experiences they have had, have contributed to their architectural taste, and have allowed them to grow  without losing  the enthusiasm they have for everything they design, whether they are urban projects  on a micro scale or on a macro scale.

Their motto is a quote by J.W.Von Goethe “Architecture is frozen music. It is what music would look like if we could see it”. This denotes a  particular sensitivity, almost artistic in the way they approach this discipline, which is never dull, but rather multicoloured and versatile.
