“Maisons Trouvées”

The discarded containers on the site led to the decision to re-use them while building the international housing compound of this hospital. Peculiar care was dedicated to insulation and energy saving, with the sunrays never hitting the containers. (2010)

TAKING CARE is a response towards unlimited growth and exploitation; it is a precise will for architectural design rooted in mutual respect towards human beings and environmental tasks, as architecture concerns both of them. TAKING CARE gives a direction to the many issues of contemporary architecture: art, landscape, economy, technology; and it results in the many works tamassociati is doing for health-care structures, cultural buildings, and public spaces in any context. TAKING CARE becomes a valuable praxis in architect’s work: the consciousness of creating always new meanings and possibilities for people in accordance to spaces.

tamassociati’s experiences relay on similar approach to different kind of project:

tamassociati provides consultants from masterplan design to construction details, offering qualified care to environmental and social issues. On each project we promote participatory planning. Our focus is in finding innovative solutions for architecture of the 21th century. Rethinking the potential of “simplicity” is in our vision to seek a proper way for a correct development of our planet: through the careful use of natural, social and economic resources. Rethinking the potential of “simplicity” is our vision of the future.
