    • Filippo Pagliani

      Architect

      Milan / Italy

      Nasce a Milano nel 1968 dove si laurea in architettura presso il Politecnico nel 1992. Negli anni successivi e fino al 1996 lavora nello studio di Renzo Piano a Parigi. Tornato a Milano, collabora fino al 1999 con lo studio di Michele De Lucchi dove conosce Michele Rossi. Insieme fondano nel 2000 Park Associati. Lo studio sperimenta negli anni ambiti progettuali e scale costruttive differenti, rinunciando ad una linea stilistica unica per ricercare continuamente suggestioni compositive date dal contesto, dalla ricerca tecnologica e dallo scambio di idee libero e aperto tra i collaboratori, aspetto quest’ultimo particolarmente sentito e vissuto dallo studio in ogni fase di progettazione. Esempi recenti di questo modo di operare sono le nuove costruzioni per gli Headquarters Nestlè e Salewa, le ristrutturazioni di importanti edifici direzionali nel nuovo contesto architettonico di Milano - La Serenissima e Gioiaotto - i due padiglioni per ristorante itinerante The Cube e Priceless, il nuovo concept internazionale per le boutiques Brioni. I lavori dello studio sono stati esposti più volte in mostre e pubblicati in riviste italiane e internazionali. Filippo Pagliani è stato professore incaricato del laboratorio di Tecnologia della Progettazione dal 2001 al 2013 al Politecnico di Milano. Nel 2008 ha conseguito il Dottorato di ricerca in Sistemi e processi edilizi presso l’Università di ingegneria edile del Dipartimento di Scienza e Tecnologia dell’Ambiente Costruito del Politecnico di Milano. E’ attualmente titolare del Corso di Architecural Design presso la facoltà di Ingegneria Edile/Architettura del Politecnico di Milano. Tiene regolarmente conferenze e seminari in Italia e all’estero e partecipa a giurie di concorsi di architettura. Born in Milan in 1968 where he graduated in architecture at the Politecnico in 1992. In the following years and until 1996 he worked in the studio of Renzo Piano in Paris. Back in Milan, he collaborated until 1999 with Michele De Lucchi studio, where he met Michele Rossi. Together they founded in 2000 Park Associati. The studio experienced in the years different design scales, giving up a unique stylistic line to continuously seek suggestions given by the context, the technological research and the free and open exchange of ideas characterizing the work carried out by partners and collaborators, this latter aspect being particularly cared in the studio in every design phase. Recent examples of this way of working are the new buildings for Nestlé and Salewa headquarters, the restyling of major office buildings in the new architectural environment of Milan - La Serenissima and Gioiaotto - the two pop-up pavilions for itinerant restaurant Priceless and The Cube, the new international store concept for the fashion brand Brioni. The studio has been invited several times to show its work in exhibitions and published in Italian and international magazines. From 2001 to 2013 Filippo Pagliani has been Head of Design Technology Laboratory at Politecnico of Milan. In 2008 he received his PhD in Building Systems and Processes at the University of Construction Engineering, Department of Science and Technology of the Built Environment at the Politecnico of Milan. He is currently Professor of Architectural Design at the Faculty of Civil Engineering / Architecture of Politecnico in Milan. He regularly gives lectures and seminars in Italy and abroad and participates in juries of architectural competitions. )
