Torino is a post-city. It is a post-royal, post-capital, and now post-industrial city.
A lot of things start here, only to go somewhere else to be developed thoroughly.
In the ‘50s a critical mass of laborers came from the South of Italy to live and work in Fiat’s production chain.
Luca Macrì is an architect, interior designer and an urban cyclist. He is a graduate from the University of Architecture (Polythecnic of Turin) and he has worked several years in the fields of architecture, interior design and product design. Luca is the founder of interior design agency LAM.
Currently Luca teaches interior design at Naba (Nuova accademia di belle arti Milano), and works as the design project coordinator. At Naba he is responsible for carrying out extra-curricular projects in co-operation with the industry and other universities.
In his blog Luca will contemplate the relationship between private and public spaces. We spend most of our lives in private spaces, eating, working, sleeping, loving etc. Private spaces are often treated as the opposite to the public spaces whereas the design of private spaces often influences the design of urban spaces. The way we design personal spaces, can it enhance democracy and promote new ways of social living?
