A global model for support and care.

A collaboration is ongoing with Fondazione TOG – Together To Go Onlus, committed to offering free care to children and young people affected by serious neurological diseases. Thus continues the happy tradition inaugurated with the team project completed with and for Emergency and Renzo Piano Building Workshop in Entebbe, Uganda for a firm, shared commitment to projects with significant social importance. The TOG Carlo De Benedetti centre, a hub covering more than 2,400sqm, designed to meet the needs of children and young people with disabilities, will be completed in Via Livigno, Milan, during 2023.
From a design viewpoint, the TOG architectural intervention by Ciro Noja working alongside studio Milan for the direction of works and the executive project, is characterised by fully glazed, curvilinear façades needing a high level of acoustic insulation, with values similar to those required for hospital facilities. Theatro’s network managed and solved the challenges thrown up by the project, due to the sheer complexity of the façade, with studies and trails that led to the creation of a mock-up. The custom façade – built for acoustic tests using the cluster building envelope solutions created by Thema, iGuzzini, Schüco, AGC, Pellini, Duravit, Florim – is now one of the protagonists of the new Build gallery.

The fifth curator of Insiders: Maria Chiara Virgili

After the advice of Federica Sala, Riccardo Crenna, Marcello Mariana and Silvia Lugari, Insiders returns to be a practical, essential and effective training tool dedicated to communication in architecture. Maria Chiara Virgili, author of the podcast Dannati Architetti, already guest of Theatro together with Alvar Altissimo, shares with us tips and tricks of the trade on three types of content: pages and web articles in key SEO, podcasts and, finally, the widespread format on social networks of the short video.

The FuoriSalone 2023 preview in Casabella.

Theatro’s participation at Fuorisalone 2023 is in the April issue of Casabella. Theatro’s first Fuorisalone event is the exhibition Le Procuratie Vecchie in Piazza San Marco, dedicated to David Chipperfield’s restoration project described through Alessandra Chemollo’s photographs and scale models of the work. On the same days, the Tegel carpet collection designed by Chipperfield for Kasthall, a historic Swedish company and world leader in the production of carpets and textile coverings, was previewed in the courtyard at Via Vigevano 8.

The Nobel Prize for Architecture to David Chipperfield.

“As architects, we have a duty to explain and recognise the emotional role of architecture, because citizens feel an emotional involvement with the city and its buildings”. With these words David Chipperfield, guest speaker at Theatro on 2 December 2022, gave his vision of how architects should not only add value to society from the commercial point of view of buildings, but also work to increase their cultural value. This is his vision awarded the Pritzker Prize 2023, the most important prize in the world of architecture.
The elegance of his works derives from the sobriety with which they are imagined and designed and coincides with the functionality and accessibility of the spaces, particularly in the more complex interventions for recovery, redevelopment and transformation of the architecture of the past.
