Today environmental sustainability is an essential concept for the future of architecture. To encourage and support positive relationships between architecture, environment and society, artecasa Lugano, in collaboration with Raiffeisen, has created the Swiss Sustainable Architecture Award.

Klingenberg Arkitektur takes part in the competition with the “La Musa” project in collaboration with Marlegno, a leading company in the green building sector. The project consists of a residence for students focus on the reduction in the number of resources used, the criteria for energy savings, the use of materials with low environmental impact and the protection of biodiversity.




We are pleased to announce the inauguration of the new Klinkenberg Arkitektur Atelier on Friday 3rd November at 7.30 pm, in Mendrisio via alla Torre 2.

The study occupies the volume of the ancient watchtower of the noble Palazzo Pollini, built for the Torriani family in 1715, and has launched a program of activities to enhance this exceptional venue and promote architectural culture and interlocution on architecture, design and art in Ticino. We would like to have you with us to present our experiences and our plans for the future.




The “Geometries of light” workshop with the students of the Boccioni Art School in Milan ends today. Starting from the peculiar experiences of Isamu Noguchi, Issey Miyake and Riccardo Blumer on the relationship between light and geometry, we have produced nine different luminous sculptures that can be visited for a few days in the garden of Palazzo Pollini.

With a common abacus of materials, cellophane and MDF wood, the students experimented with the different expressive possibilities of light, diffused in an open space. The final result is an unprecedented nocturnal landscape: nine mysterious objects of light burst into the neoclassical garden, reinterpreting its shapes and balances.

To the friends of Liceo Boccioni our gratitude and a cordial “Goodbye”.

We would like to thank the architect Felicia Lamanuzzi for inviting us to participate in the 3rd edition of the Urban Design Workshop held in Rovio this week. We also thank all her team of atelier coordinators: arch. Roberto Russo, arch. Allegra Lucrezia Bonamore and arch. Simone Cattoni.

“The Urban Design Workshop promoted by the Felicia Lamanuzzi architecture studio, like the architecture produced, reveals its constant attention to the recovery of a way of living cities to the human dimension and not just the automobile.
It is intended as an intensive design laboratory on an urban and architectural scale, therefore an open opportunity for discussion and analysis of issues related to urban living, the redevelopment and development of residual areas in an interdisciplinary way, experimenting with their potential as generators of urban quality.
Starting from the analysis of places in their social and territorial dynamics, the workshop wants to verify the validity of this method against the widespread territorial planning based on the logic of building quantities, generally regardless of the qualitative aspect that those numbers will generate.
The main objective is to understand the social variables that affect the election of a place as a public space, therefore lived, spontaneously frequented, travelled, inhabited and to develop design proposals that, based on those, transform anonymous spaces into animated places, for people, meeting points, where to share values ​​and celebrate the “rite of urbanity”. ”




Together with the Liceo Artistico Boccioni in Milano we began a new Work-School project. Propaedeutically to the start of this project we proposed five thematic workshops, during which we sperimented a didactic approach that was highly participative, with the intention to get the students from the third year closer to some aspects of thinking and designing architecture. Some of them got so interested in the idea of following the path of architecture in their future, that they came with us in our studio !!

Thanks to Ilaria, Nicolò, Martina, Eleonora, Laura, Giacomo, Luca, Marlin and Menna who today finished their stage in our studio.



The project for the new kindergarten in Meinier tries to solve the architectural intention of making sustainable the construction of a contemporary pedagogical space, silently capable of interacting with the emotional sphere of one of the most demanding category of users in this sense: children. The proposal finds its strength in the simplicity of the planimetric disposition and of the materialization of the suggested buildings, redefining the built volumes on the North East side of the competition area, working on the modification of the current “independent pavilion” and reinforcing the urbanistic, environmental and landscape characters, which were already existing inside the scholastic area, highlighting the value of the school as one of the fundamental places in the town.



The ideas about protection, preservation and recognition of place’s history in the context of contemporary museum architecture, if not intended like a “program”, can be easily freed from architectural connotations of functional type regarding form, dimension and matter. Interpreting the same ideas under the definition of “pragmatic necessities”, they assume, inside the project frame, a fundamental role in the research for a museum architectural space of narrative of the past and relation between history and contemporaneity. The intention of the project is to generate in the environment of museum architecture a new spatial archetype, an architecture of “giving” contemporaneity, sober and quiet, capable of coexisting with the past, protected and preserved, with the conditions of use’s dynamics defined by modernity.



The exhibit, originally initiated by the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and curated by Jill Desimini, is presented in Mendrisio thanks to the curatorial adaptation by landscape architect Joao Gomes da Silva. The timeless practise of producing representations of the physical reality of the world gave rise to a cultural activity called ‘cartography’, embedded in the discipline of geography but influencing other disciplines in the sciences and arts. The exhibition, therefore, presents a vision of the relations between the tradition of mapping, the contemporary practice of landscape architecture and architecture as representation. The exhibition is divided into four sections, Subsurface lnventions, Temporal ltineraries, Aqueous Explorations, Terrestrial Practices, and is complemented by original cartographic materials from the collections of the Academy of architecture Library, enabling visitors to experience documents referring to the Swiss and North Italian landscapes, a region where strong was the need to create and install infrastructure, improve the capture and distribution of water, energy production and distribution or road and railway circulation.



The architectural thought at the base of the presented project originates from concrete purposes, which primarly aim to an operation of preservative restoration and riqualification of the spatial existing value, and from the necessity of the client to convert the final use of those spaces: from harbour service spaces to directional and representative offices. The recovery is not only imagined as an intervention of stylistic maquillage, but as a radical reconsideration of the space’s quality, respecting the structural and architectonical qualities and characteristics, which are already part of the space itself. The result is a clear project, freed from formalilsm and decorative appendixes, that stands out thanks to the expressive immediacy of plain spaces, which are rich, evocative and emotional at the same time. The spatial simplicity in the project results in that peculiar sense of coexistence between man and enviroment.



A working space in the contemporaneity can’t be interpreted only as a place for doing, indifferent to the construction of human relationships between users, workers and space. The proposed structure for the new headquarters of the representative buildings of canton Thurgau tries to solve with just one architectural movement the building of a roof, the scale relationships between the existing buildings, structuring the emptiness and defining a new public square, filtering the access to the urban park area. The attention to the materialisation and versatility of the plan puts some distance between the spatiality of the building and the aseptic and strict configuration of an administrative office and gets this architecture closer to the city and to individual sensitivity.
