The way the exhibition is presented clearly shows that the architectural practice focuses on a purposeful approach to cultural, professional and intellectual challenges. In particular, the central exhibition space focuses on the characteristics and design ideas of ongoing projects. With the exhibition in Vincenza, the architectural practice aims to highlight their design and creative processes, thus making their values and ideas accessible to visitors. Among the projects presented are, for example, the Royal Academy of Arts in London, a major refurbishment of the New National Gallery, and the James Simon Gallery in Berlin, among many others. A catalogue in English and Italian is also available for the exhibition.
