Renzo Piano Building Workshop
From Los Angeles to Moscow
At the age of 85, Renzo Piano is not one of those masters who take on a late style, and who through it break with their previous output to become daring. The Genoan’s career has been a meditated but constant move forward, and he has stayed true to himself and kept fresh his concerns: the artistic dimension, the artisanal character, and the civil spirit of the profession. Arquitectura Viva here presents four of his most recent works in a journey that goes from west to east, turning its back – as does Piano himself – to the sunset: a cinematography museum in Los Angeles, a new building for Columbia University, a law bar association headquarters in Paris, and a renovated art space in Moscow.
