Home Edition 2020 

Let’s keep the cultural life alive!  As a consequence of Covid-19, our social and cultural life has been reduced to a minimum and we all need to adapt to this unprecedented situation. Since we have a commitment with you, with the architecture scene, we came up with this new idea that is meant to lift your spirits and provide you with some genuine inspiration – at your home. Therefore, from Monday, March 23rd, onwards, each day at 7 p.m. we will be sharing one of the unique talks from the previous 35 events that we have held during the last 5 years.

TALK #53: Massimiliano Fuksas

About Massimiliano Fuksas

Massimiliano Fuksas is an Italian all-rounder. He is an architect, designer, humanist, poet and painter at the same time. He completed his architectural studies in Rome in 1969. Shortly thereafter, he opened his first own architectural studio in Rome. In the 1980s he shifted the focus to France. Fuksas has offices in Rome, Paris, Vienna, Frankfurt am Main and Shenzhen. At the end of 2001 he was Artistic Director of Berisch Architecture at the Venice Biennale. Fuksas has been a visiting professor at various universities in Europe and the USA, such as the Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart, the École Spéciale d’Architecture in Paris, the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and the Columbia University in New York. He also has been writing a weekly column in L’Espresso magazine since 2000. In 2002 he became an honorary member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and in 2003 a member of the International Academy of Architecture (IAA) in Sofia. www.fuksas.com

This talk is presented with the support of Bette. 
Massimiliano Fuksas initially aspired to become a painter. He believes it is possible to do everything with a painting by the use of the mind and a concept. With a broad range of colours and dimensions, Bette creates a carefully designed environment which makes it possible for people to experience themselves in entirely new ways.

Eye-catching contrast or effect colours present individual bathroom elements as coloured eye-catchers which shimmer in an exciting way depending on the light incidence. They focus on current bathroom interiors, materials, colours, shapes and finishes. However, colour in the bathroom does not automatically mean brightly coloured. Timeless, discreet shades and pastel colours are in fashion. More than 40 percent of Bette customers now choose coloured floor-level shower surfaces made from glazed titanium steel. Check out their different design versions: Link.

Virtual Feedback Cards for the Speaker

Dear viewer,
Maybe you have never attended our events, but perhaps know this already. Your effort is required! As the speakers share many of their personal experiences with us, we would like to present them a special gift, now digitally.

Please write into the text box below what you enjoyed most about the talk. Our goal is to present each speaker with personal feedback cards, as we do at our events. At our events, we collect the cards right before we start with the round-table-discussion and hand them over in a box at the end of the event.

Please participate! Our speakers love it and we want to continue with this tradition.

Here, we will collect the messages and forward them via e.mail to our speaker:
