Interview on Stereotomy with Giuseppe Fallacara, Architect and full professor in architectural design at the University of Bari

Giuseppe Fallacara on Digital Stereotomy

Giuseppe Fallacara is an architect and full professor in architectural design at the Polytechnic University of Bari where he leads the New Fundamentals Research Group. He focuses his research on stereotomy, a construction technique based on stone that suffered from the 20th-century diffusion of concrete and steel. I interviewed him to understand more about this technique, which could play a central role in the sustainable development of our cities thanks to digital tools and parametric architecture.

Pioneer 10 plaque: The most ambitious project in communication design history

The most ambitious project in the history of communication design

The Pioneer 10 is the first man-made object we sent outside our solar system. It holds the most ambitious visual communication project ever conceived by a human mind: a message to extraterrestrial life. The authors are Carl Sagan, Frank Drake and Linda Salzman, who carried out this incredible project just three weeks to go before launch. In this article, I explain the design problems and the decisions made by the authors to solve them.

Design as art Bruno Munari, book review by Giuseppe Gallo

Design as Art by Bruno Munari

Munari is a giant of 20th-century Italian design, a figure of incredible depth who helped define the role of the designer as we know it today. Design as Art, originally published in 1966, is probably not his most important book, but it represents an interesting journey through his thoughts. It is useful for young people aspiring to a design career as well as for experienced designers who want to improve the communication of their projects.

Digital Quarantine featured on the De Agostini Atlas of Contemporary Art

The De Agostini Atlante dell’arte Contemporanea is the oldest artistic Italian contemporary art yearbook. For the 2021 edition, curator Stefania Pieralice has selected some of the best contemporary Italian art and design projects. Among them, to my great delight, my project Digital Quarantine: a design series about the impact of digitalisation on our lives. One topic that, as a designer, I think is urgent to talk about. In this article, you will find more information about the history of Atlante dell’arte and its 2021 edition.
