On the occasion of the 15th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, LAMINAM presented the editorial project World Atlas Book, a limited edition architecture volume containing the most exciting images of LAMINAM references around the world, as a journey to discover cultures and artistic spirits.
For over a year photographer Andrea Garuti travelled the five continents to create a photo feature combining architecture, reality and travel report, gently immortalising real-life scenes with powerful chromatic shades and tiptoeing along the path of respect for other peoples and cultures, expressing through images and life stories the conquering spirit and the journey towards new horizons, typical of architectural innovation and essence of LAMINAM’s activity.
The book was presented on 26 May on the occasion of the round-table discussion “The Planet on the Surface” held in the Library of the Biennale in the Central Pavilion in the Gardens. The talk offered an invitation to take an ideal flight across the planet, gliding through materials and methods, across borders and over creative utopias.
The author and director Raffaello Fusaro acted as moderator for some of the most authoritative figures from the world of contemporary architecture who spoke on the theme, such as the architects Gianluca Peluffo 5+1AA Alfonso Femia Gianluca Peluffo (Genoa-Milan, Italy), Anupama Kundoo, Anupama Kundoo Architects (Auroville, India / Madrid, Spain) Zhang Ke, ZAO / Standardarchitecture (Beijing, China) and Humberto Campana, Estudio Campana (São Paulo, Brazil). Special guest was Prof. Giuliana Bruno, from the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies of Harvard University (USA).
