Lecture by Marcello Galiotto (AMAA).

Marcello Galiotto, architect and founding partner at AMAA, will lecture on Tuesday 13 February at 5 pm at Kent State University Florence CAED. His lecture, titled “Seemingly Simple”, will be introduced by prof. Paola Giaconia.

Marcello’s lecture will explore the seemingly simple nature of AMAA’s projects, revealing an underlying complexity that may initially deceive the viewer. AMAA’s works exhibit multiple layers of richness, often influenced by their surrounding landscape or urban context, and consistently inspired by texts and images.

AMAA is Alessandra Rampazzo (b. 1986) and Marcello Galiotto (b. 1986). They established their practice in 2012, after graduating from IUAV University Venice. AMAA is based both in Venice and in the heart of the Venetian plain in Arzignano. Notable publications include “Seemingly Simple,” published in 2022, and “On Time, Memory, Methods and Craft,” published in 2023. Amidst numerous ongoing projects, significant competition wins, and a consistently vibrant design activity deeply rooted in research, the young firm is currently experiencing a phase of international growth and recognition. Following their successful participation in the 18th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, invited by director Lesley Lokko to be featured in the main exhibition housed at the Corderie dell’Arsenale, they recently opened a new branch in New York City.
