As an answer to global environmental emergency we create a meaningful and sensitive architecture in a mutual balance between behavioural shifting, respect for nature and built context.

Philosophy Design Architecture in "World of Life"

At the Architect is given the power to control the ethical and educational values inherent in a building through his sensivity.

Architecture as a whole of signs

Using logical connections founded on his multi-disciplinary training and personal cultural awarness, Architect communicates throught integrated sequences of forms that harmonize with the obeserver's ability to interpret.

Socio-economic context

Changes in the way professionals work have always been one of most important indicators of social change. This approach to architectural design could spread as buildings became less functionally restricted and more felxibile.

The fragility of the environment

The widespread use of non-renewable sources of energy has serious repercussions on our health and environment. Every sustainable architectural design should set itself the task of reducing polution by supporting the maximum saving of energy, employing bio-climatic technologies.

The glider as an inspiraton

The glider uses advanced technology and a dash of creativity interpreting natural forms harmoniously and flexibly. Soaring gracefully through space, it expolits the natural air currents, th deglight of the pilot and the amazement of on-lookers.


Our conception of architecture considers the bioclimatic approach as a fundamental act of any architectural mode of operation promoting use of predominantly passive techniques for energy savings.

Marco Visconti graduated in architecture at the University of Genoa, followed by a postgraduate master in Architectural Design at the UCLA of Los Angeles and a degree in Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Turin. In Genoa he collaborated with Renzo Piano from 1984 to 1986. From 1987 to 2006 he was the head of the architectural group of Fiatengineering and subsequently of Maire Tecnimont. In January 2007 he founded an architectural firm focused on sustainability. This group is a creative laboratory where architects and engineers, focused on human needs, work together to find the best passive solutions for energy saving. Among the projects in industry, professional training and culture filed, noteworthy are: the engine production hall and the paint pavilIon Ferrari, as well as the restaurant Ferrari in Maranello; the Iveco’s training center in Turin; the research center Fiat Sata in Melfi; Hitachi’s training centre in Lecce; Turin’s National Automobile Museum’s conference room, Mugello’s race track’s service building in Florence; Iren cogeneration and hydroelectric plant in Moncalieri; Zucchetti office tower in Lodi. Marco lectures on specific topics at Italian and foreign universities. He is the author of publications and thematic books and his projects are documented by major international journals of architecture. Fundamental characteristic of his work is the search for the best relationship between man, building and nature in a logic of respect, understanding and use of the surrounding environment.

ARBO TRAIN STATION Competition: second place


Bolzano, Italy Judges comments: The authors of the project consider the principal scope of the competition to be the creation of a multimodal centre for Bolzano. This entails an effort for the research for a contemporary architecture which will fit into the context of a long term town planning approach. Of equal importance for the planners are the dialog and the relationship between the buildings and the interconnected public spaces and green areas. Innovative, modern, sustainable and ecological solutions are aimed at integrating the Piani district within the town planning context of the city and at eliminating the barrier effect represented by the existing railway line. in collaboration with: Herzog+Partner, Latz+Partner, Ingenieurb端ro Hausladen STS S.p.a.

Caselle, Italy The objective of the project is to achieve an integrated architectural concept capable of enhancing the landscape and harmoniously interacting with the same. With this intent, a dynamic composition has been adopted which not only responds to the functional and commercial utilisation requirements of the centre but, through the search for excellence, has also achieved an architecture which has a low visual impact and which greatly respects the formal aspects of the landscape. The proposal distinguishes itself for the large natural roofing which is divided into three parts with an end-to-end high level walkway, access bridge to the air terminal. From a planimetric point of view, the roofing represents a sculptural element tied to the geometric trend of the cultivated fields. in collaboration with: Aedas L.t.d., P. Mc Gill and M.

Golfo Aranci, Italy

Karkov, Ucraine

The project considers surrounding nature as its main inspiration element. Facades are composed by same granite stone that surrounds the building, landscape design repeats mediterranean vegetation and gives a new interpretation to existing sand dunes.

The private residence building is laid down on a hill overlooking the city of Karkov. In terms of the building form, it is ruled by the overlapping of two elements of composition. The ground floor contains living room, study area, kitchen and service spaces, while the upper floor are areas and guests living rooms. The building is oriented towards the swimming pool and sunken into the ground. The second feature is represented by a suspended box which contains bedrooms and washrooms. The composition is held by the principles of passive sustainability to which, the main facades of the building are protected by porches or by shading devices. The materials used for the faรงade and for the building are of natural type. The entire living environment is further enriched by lush greenery and the extensive selection of local plants. with: M.

Lecce, Italy

Turin, Italy

The Hitachi training centre is housed in a two-storey building part of which is laid underground. On the ground floor there are the hall reception, classrooms, offices while in the basement there are the laboratories. This building, situated in a spacious park, is featured by facades which function according to a bio-climatic system. According to the interpretation of the different expositions, in fact, the south side of the prospect has light blade elements in perforated aluminium whereas the north side has stratified opal glass panels. Such elements are connected to a vertical metal structure that holds a laminated shelf with the double function of a further solar protection and the crowning of the roof. The inside is crossed by a great central corridor of variable width capable of containing the connecting staircase to the laboratories and the main entrance facing the park.

This library is constructed within an historical industrial pavilion. Its location has symbolic aspects. In terms of its constituents, this building presents as a great transparent surface with a double curve, constructed in glass and steel, and containing the functions of the library, reading room and training space. The glass volume takes up the concept of transparency that enables the characteristic elements of the old pavilion to be reflected.

Turin, Italy From an architectural point of view, the structure overall consists of consecutive linear spaces, linked piece by piece to the green areas and to the adjacent urban roadway. The complex is laid out on three levels. The first is underground, and linked to the factory via an internal courtyard containing a workshop, the technical rooms and storerooms; the second, placed slightly above ground-level has theory and practical lecture rooms for the Training Centre; and the third houses the offices .The double-height volumes that contain the Training Centre are situated along the curved side of the building, and, when seen from the street, appear as a unified linear system protected by a wide portico. The roof of the building is light and unifying, supported by reticulated beams which constitute the external portico that also protects the pedestrian link between the Training Centre and the carpak on the eastern side.

Vicenza, Italy The inspiring principle of the project is a gigantic roof capable of making homogeneous and uniting the pole of Fiera di Vicenza. This vast and complex surface, similar to a precious tissue, as well as accomplishing typical structural suspension functions of both the new floors and facades, behaves as a big shading system which allows the fitting of an important integrated photovoltaic field. The system of facades constitutes the completion of the entire architectural theme: the great formal simplification of these elements permits the enclosure of the spaces in a simple and functional manner through transparent, filtering and mat surfaces.

Turin, Italy

Aosta, Italy

The project comprises a new Auditorium which is placed along an inclined floor that puts to use all the available length, unifying in fact stalls and circle for the 414 seats in total. The secondary hall is placed below the main hall and contains 170 seats. A symmetric system of two corridors is applied, leading to the secondary and the main hall. The main hall is defined by its inclined shape creating a fusion with the geometry of the big false ceiling in acoustic plaster, strongly controlled by the coherent fixtures and lighting design. Similarly the small hall, with segmented walls, presents a great environmental comfort.

The new university campus is organized through an open urban system conceived to break the closed arrangement that characterized the past military employment of the area. For this reason a formal perimeter connects the urban environment to the university maintaining the indipendence of the campus through controlled accesses. From an architectural point of view the geometrical order is respected and emphasized by the buildings: simple volumes inserted inside the rectangular court and connected to each other with protected walking paths.

Melfi, Italy

Abu Dhabi, UAE

Melfi’s Campus Manufacturing is a linear functions system, characterized by a gigantic overshadowing panel, variously bended & directly supported by light structures based on a naturalistic idea. This makes the building a multifunctional structure, creating peculiar areas designed for office work and for testing. The porch sees a coherent integration of the major principles of support in architecture, creating shadows to protect the transparent facades and cooperating with the natural cooling through ventilation systems in the covering. The project is located in a central area of Melfi’s establishment and becomes the focus of the amphitheatre.

The project for the new Research Center of Abu Dhabi originated with the aim of creating and integrating units of training and research. In fact, a part of the centre will house a teaching branch of the Turin Polytechnic Institute; while the other part is going to be an operational space centre. A distinctive element is the single shingle which physically and formally connects the two units assuring a milder temperature inside. The incorporation of a large artificial lake in the northern area makes it possible to keep the temperature cool since the passage of the winds from the north would cool down on the water basin and blow towards south at night. The façade is marked by windows and metal shading devices. The role of the antennas, fundamental for the communication between satellites and base, is emphasized by their shape. Their dynamic design resembles a sculptural center piece, fitting for a gateway emblem to the Center.

Maranello, Italy The principal inspirations for the work are dictated by maximum attention to quality and environmental comfort in an area rich in imagery and coherence between new construction, existing buildings and surrounding landscape. The external part of the building is characterised by greenery, which filters the direct views, giving strength from the inside to the vision of nature through the great glass faรงades. Maximum attention has also been given to environmental comfort and light values, transparency and visual contact with nature.The whole faรงade system was conceived through the analysis of exposure and solar radiation, and for this reason a sun-shielding portico was employed on the southern side, constructed from perforated aluminium elements, integrated with three glasshouses on the eastern side incorporating vertically-operated curtains movement.

Maranello, Italy This industrial BUILDING is a large box built at the centre of the industrial site. The design is based on the aggregation of interconnected rectangular volumes, partially transparent and slightly offset from one another. The shell of the paint shop contains the production plant leaving the more interesting zones visible. The form of the building is determined by the functionality of the operation carried out on the first floor, the service areas on the ground floor and the facilities provided for the visitor flow. To allow observation of the more interesting phase of the paint cycle, a gallery has been constructed high above the factory floor, reached by ramps and stairways. On the southwest corner of the building, a multi-storey greenhouse provides connections between floors and houses the energy production plants.

Moncalieri, Italy The power station of Moncalieri is a hydroelectric and cogeneration power station which provides district-heating energy to about 300,000 people of Turin. From a design point of view, different shapes are aggregated and coated in order to reduce the environmental impact of the power station. The main volumes are marked by green horizontal stripes which evoke the colours of nature while the colours of the minor volumes comply with the law. Furthermore their aggregation is inspired to the medieval unit of Moncalieri castle and historical center. The lot is defined by three waterways: the hydroelectric power station intake canal, the Po and the Sangone. The water which is a fundamental element for the power station plays an important formal and compositional role. with: M.T. Ridolfi, F. Bodrito, R. Gilli, G. Pairone, R. Racca and G. Marè General Project: MaireTecnimont - G. De Martini



Melfi, Italy The architecture of this industrial complex has been determined by the surrounding environmental characteristics, dominated by the soft lines of the hills, resulting in low buildings in harmony with nature. The whole system of services is accommodated in a long curved volume that, together with the undulating landscape, is aligned along the parabolic form of the flow of the external pedestrian paths. The industrial faรงades are similarly designed and, with the intention of diminishing their visual impact, a separation was sought through the use of horizontal green bands placed next to simple overhanging lines below, made from tuff coloured prefabricated panels. In this way, the complex emerges from the field to form a whole that is an integrated and continuous portion of its surroundings. with: D. Chiaruttini, G. Conti, T. De Vincenti, R. Buzzichelli, R. Maestri, B. Marcucci, M. Pierro General Project: MaireTecnimont - G. De Martini



Maranello, Italy The design of New Ferrari restaurant in Maranello is directly influenced by general concepts of passive architecture. The basics of its arrangement consist in the juxtaposing of two volumes linked to concepts of aerodynamics, as represented by the great hanging wing-shaped pavilion, placed in a flight position, supported by another, staggered-axis wing positioned vertically on the ground. As regards the use of main sustainability-in-architecture factors, the complex interprets the most recent experiences of passive bio-climatic. The degree of exposure to the sun’s rays of the outer surfaces and façades has been analyzed in relation to the building’s usage times: the wing shape is closed towards the South, and the glazing facing East and West is shaded during the usage period. with: D. Chiaruttini, G.Pairone, C. Ghione, G. Rissone, P. Bettini, V. Lazzeri General Project: MaireTecnimont - G. De Martini





Mestre, Italy From the formal point of view the buildings are defined, through their connection with the ground, by long, heavy, prefabricated shields; toward the top there is a light metal volume, suspended from reticulated overhead beams, and protected by two rows of embossed screens of aluminium designed to feed natural light to the entrance. Besides the simple functional and construction rationale, it is intended that these designs express a faรงade concept that varies during the course of the day through the use of shadow. The long prefabricated shields have inclined faces with different reflections and become a projection screen for the shadows cast by the sunshields onto the prefabricated walls underneath.

eVolo SKYSCRAPER Competition


New York, United States A city that looks to the sky is a city that respects itself, without limiting its development. From a design point of view the project is made up of a set of large triangles that define the shape of a pyramidal tower. The tower contains a complex system of functions: at gruond floor there are public functions, such as sports facilities, trade and restaurants, above them offices and private residences, while the top can be turned into a public club. The project includes a green system becoming a strong element of cohesion with the surroundings landscape. This network, composed by plants and water system, ensures continuity between the inside and the outside of the building. in collaboration with: Experientia- J. C. Zoels, L.Schuster-Woldan and M.

Lodi, Italy The project envisages the re-adaptation of the spaces for a new utilisation as offices. From a compositional point of view the project is represented by a huge transparent involucre, of a mineral shape. It is sheathed in an external metallic shielding structure, designed in accordance with the protective requirements dictated by the various situations of exposure to the sun. The sustainability of the project idea is driven by a combined strategy of energy conservation and attention to the well-being of the users. In particular passive solutions have been adopted, such as, high thermal heat insulation, natural ventilation activated by a solar chimney, utilisation of renewable energy, solar protection, diffusion of green areas inside and outside the building. The architecture of the complex generates a distinguishable system as a result of a fluid and translucent volume, covered by a surrounding solar protective shield. A natural involucre characterised by its vibrating profiles: “brainwaves� intended to represent the essence of intellectual activity.

Rai Office, Italy

Tofas office, Bursa - Turkey

Existing RAI research facility and urban context is the inspiration for this new office building, done with two different volumes built in north-south and east-west direction. From sustainability point of view offices are crossed by a natural ventilation for slabs and sun protection facade design is variable in relation to sun path. Inner courtyard landscape contains a refreshing fountain and main lobby is directly connected to it.

This office building is divided into two formally different parts: the services zone between the ground and first floors, and the offices on the second and third floors surmounted by a movable sun protection cover. The services and offices zones are divided by an intermediate cover that, in the case of the lobby and conference room, projects in relation to the block above and is connected to the artificial hill located between the road in front and the building. The faรงade of the office zone comprises transparent modulated elements that have horizontal sunshields and filtering curtains towards the south. A pergola comprising prefabricated concrete elements surmounts the cover, and is equipped for refreshments and gatherings. with: G. Conti, F. Bodrito, G. Gallo, C. Icardi and F.

Mugello, Italy

Milan, Italy

The new main grandstand of Mugello’s car racing circuit presents itself as a sculptural element side by side to the existing assistance offices and box. From a composition stand point, the structure is defined by a group of reinforced concrete prefabricated elements supported by a frame with a branched geometry to support the flat cantilever roof. Functionally speaking, the structure is crossed by tracks laid down on the ground and it contains two paired grandstands with the larger one facing the straight course and the other facing the two main bands, conducive to dual visibility to the viewers. This all is completed by a protected area with glazed windows and put to use as hospitality and restaurant, bridged over to the existing structure by a light gangway.

International CompetitionFor III Millenium. This luminous sculpture is formally related to nearby Pirelli skyscraper’s. This project is characterized by two light wings done using metal tubes drawn on the sky scraper’s shape. Projecting screens in translucent glass and spot lights create,at night, a “luminous sculpture” effect.

Turin, Italy

The project deals with the renovation of historical apartment facing Po river. From a spatial point of view the concept is focused on the main central room used as a meeting and presentation space.

This project comprises a radical restoration of the attic of a 1800s building situated in a central urban centre. The apartment crosses transversely the wing of the building, concerning both the last floor and the attic. This has permitted to turn the new spaces towards two urban fronts, the hills on one side and the crown of mountains on the other.
