The fourth curator of Insiders: Silvia Lugari

This is what travelling is all about, letting our whole selves become completely immersed in our surroundings. A total and all-embracing experience, the only one that allows you to truly understand a society, a history, a place. And of course, the architecture.
After the words of a cultural curator, a digital expert and a photographer, Insiders’ perspective is widening to include the dimension of travel. The first three editions for 2023 are curated by traveller and trained architect Silvia Lugari. She organises trips and cultural events around architectural themes. She collaborates with Casabella training casabella1928 and proviaggiarchitettura for which she organises national and international conferences, exhibitions, trips and workshops. She writes and contributes to artribune and professionearchitetto. Lugari’s articles are genuine invitations to travel, not only in spiritual or cultural terms, they are also curious, cultured, passionate, and full of many practical tips. Specifically, in each of the three newsletters, she will be sharing five tips for a good architectural journey.

The annual meeting of Theatro partners.

Working together with the common goal of good architecture. The annual meeting with the partners and supporters who make up the network through which Theatro operates is always an opportunity to look back on the road travelled and above all, to share news, plans, intentions and common challenges. At times like these, the value of the network that Theatro has built up over the years becomes tangible: companies and people who are very different from each other united by a common goal of good architecture.

New material hierarchies.

An energy-intensive building from the early 2000s has changed its skin and its core with a renovation intervention devised with a global approach: team work that has transformed an obsolete office building in Milan into incisive architecture with a bold personality. The creators of the intervention, wanted by SIC Sviluppo Immobiliare Corio, are architect, Stefano Belingardi Clusoni, founder of BE.ST Belingardi Stefano, design architect for the project and artistic director, and the team from L22 Civil Engineering, a Gruppo Lombardini22 brand which has planned, managed and made executive, the renovation project, coordinating architecture, systems, LEED certification, administrative practices, security and DL. The Theatro network of companies has acted as coordinator for the integrated design of the façade system, through the technical development of the full design package, definition of technical specifications with a turnkey approach, and the creation of an accurate, truthful overall budget. Theatro found the technical solutions for engineering and commissioning to implement the project by BE.ST Belingardi Stefano, taking part with the building envelope cluster that includes the expertise of partners Schüco, Thema, AGC and ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems.
