Description


FORMA + chapmanbdsp presents "Breaking the Boundaries: Building an International Approach"

Roundtable with Giancarlo Alhadeff, Ian Duncombe and Maria-Chiara Piccinelli




FORMA + is a new series of itinerant events connecting ideas, people and businesses that operate in the built environment. From design to architecture, from town planning to real estate and beyond, we are an open space for debate and inspiration.

The third FORMA + event will be hosted by the independent building services, engineering and environmental design consultancy chapmanbdsp in its London headquarters.

What are the challenges and opportunities of internationalisation for large and small businesses in the building industry? How do architects use their skills in different cultural and legal contexts? What are the best strategies to sell your design approach in international competitions and tenders?

Three practitioners with different backgrounds will share their cross-boundary experience and engage in an open debate with the public.

Ian Duncombe co-founded BDSP Partnership in 1995 and went on to deliver a great number of award winning UK and international projects, among them 30 St Mary Axe (the ‘Gherkin’), Nottingham Science Park and the World Trade Center in Abu Dhabi incorporating what is now the world’s 4th tallest all-residential building. Many of these projects were formed around Ian’s innovative environmental engineering designs. Today, Ian continues to collaborate with leading architects on high profile projects such as Battersea Power Station Phase 3. He is currently delivering projects in the UK, Kenya, the UAE and Malta.

Maria-Chiara Piccinelli is as interested in the technical aspects of architecture – the finer details, the way things fit together, the materials – as she is in the way we use the spaces in which we live and work. She is a strong believer in the importance of public spaces for a city to thrive, and in the crucial role nature plays within architecture. As a director of PiM.studio alongside Maurizio Mucciola, she brings to the practice many years of experience leading complex and high-profile projects. She began her career in Italy, and has since worked in Tokyo, Edinburgh and Paris for Kengo Kuma & Associates, and in Rotterdam for OMA/Rem Koolhaas.

Giancarlo Alhadeff established Studio Alhadeff Architects in 1991. Dedicated to design with an international point of view. From its inception, the Studio has carried out design projects in the US, UK, Japan, and the Far and Middle East. It has realized projects in a variety of architectural sectors, true to the multifaceted nature of its founder. These include new buildings such as hotels and fitness centers; restoration of existing structures including those recognized for their artistic and historic value; commercial and private interior design, including high visibility, high fashion boutiques, offices, showrooms, shopping centers, restaurants as well as private residences.
