Massimiliano Fuksas (*Rome, 1944) is a major international architect with offices in Rome, Paris, Vienna, Frankfurt and China. For many years he has dedicated special attention to the study of urban problems and, in particular, to the suburbs. Four key considerations drive his work: community, culture, spirituality and peace. Some of his major works include the Maison des Arts in Bordeaux, the research centre for Ferrari in Maranello, the Milan Trade Fair, the Zenith Music Hall in Strasbourg and the Peres Centre for Peace in Israel. He is also a professor at several universities and has published widely. In 2000, he directed the VII Venice Biennale of Architecture titled Less Aesthetics, More Ethics. After New Trade Fair Milan and Frames, Actar publishes a new and valuable book that compiles high-quality photographs of his major works and never-released sketches and drawings conceived by this multi-faceted mind. The visual content will be accompanied by several interviews with renowned contributors.
