Celebrates Massimo Mercurio's architectural experimentation and sculpture in Singapore, combining architecture in Asia with Italian style and tradition. The Mercurio Design Lab (MDL) masterfully manages to express its potential in Singapore. Massimo Mercurio is motivated by a strong spirit of innovation and experimentation, and seeks to combine the Asian architectural context with Italian style and tradition. MDL considers its projects as artistic masterpieces and makes a special contribution to the architectural scene of the city through the creation of dramatic and futuristic buildings, always respecting three fundamental criteria: the functional, the aesthetic and the social. AUTHOR: Massimo Mercurio was born in Rome, Italy in 1969. His father, Alfonso, is an architect and Massimo's early upbringing exposed him to very broad and rich cultural influences. This early breadth was sustained throughout his education. He is a firm believer in a broad and inclusive approach both to one's personal as well as one's professional life. Massimo Mercurio moved to Asia at the age of 24 experiencing life in Bangkok and Singapore where he eventually settled down. The Italian designer is a versatile personality whose interests and experiences span from theoretical physics to architecture, from philosophy to project management. During the fifteen years in Asia he gathered experiences in design, construction and project management. His interest in art focuses both on the theoretical and practical front. The former sees his works focus on establishing a philosophical framework aimed at supporting the inception of an original style emerging out of the new creative fringes of the East. The latter is concerned with the conceptualisation and execution of dedicated projects designed to spread and represent the manifestation of his theories. SELLING POINTS: - Mercurio Design Lab (MDL) is a design studio dedicated to the creation and crafting of cutting edge and outstanding design work - Celebrates Massimo Mercurio's architectural experimentation and sculpture in Singapore, combining architecture in Asia with Italian design - Part of the IMAGES' Master Architect Series 200 col.
