Vincenzo De Cotiis: inspirational architecture
Among today’s most celebrated architects my 2 very favorites are Zahia Hahid and Vincenzo De Cotiis. De Cotiis, the Milanese designer trained at the Milan Polytechnic has an incredible eye for matching the most luxurious textures and abrupt materials. His pure forms and lines are exalted by the use of warm faded tone of patina gold. De Cotiis works with numerous recycled materials such as wood, fibreglass, resin, leather, brass and iron which brings to true visual and tactile experiences. His aesthetics and architectural works is to my opinion a form of contemporary art.
Below is a glimpse at his versatile work both from private and public commands:
