08 OCTOBER 2018 / BBC’s “Masters of Design” Series Features Renzo Piano

BBC’s interview series “Masters of Design” features internationally renowned architect, Renzo Piano, on the occasion of the “Renzo Piano: The Art of Making Buildings” large retrospective exhibition, which is currently on display at the Royal Academy of Arts until January 20th, 2019.

In his interview, Renzo Piano reflected on his love of making public buildings that encourage gathering and social interaction, on the notions of “lightness” and “transparency” in design, as well as on what inspires him, noting, among other things, that “An architect is trained for those things: to observe the world, to listen to the world, to understand […] What gives energy is this idea that at the end by doing what you are doing, it may be a little drop, but it’s a little drop that can change the world.”

The “Renzo Piano: The Art of Making Buildings” exhibition offers a detailed look at 16 of Renzo Piano’s most iconic buildings, including the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC). The SNFCC was made possible with an exclusive grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
