Philosophy

Architecture Philosophy - Ecotecture

Matteo Thun - Ecotecture philosophy. Of ecology, economising, quality of architectural design and the pleasure of using it. The word "sustainability", which we are now getting used to treating in "numerical" terms of energy efficiency, has a more complex meaning which cannot be confined to just technical and normative prescriptions.

Design Philosophy

Matteo Thun is convinced that people want functions. Although that implies a degree of material substance, his team strives to strip their objects of the form and body that might hinder mobility. He sees design essentially as the evolution of an architectural project: buildings need interiors, interiors need products, products need designers and manufacturers.
