Project of a Historical Architecture–Wonders of the Modern World: America  PIER PAOLO TAMBURELLI

Italian architect, writer, and editor Pier Paolo Tamburelli will present the research that he recently conducted as the Douglas A. Garofalo Fellow at the School of Architecture, University of Illinois at Chicago. Tamburelli’s project looks back to Austrian architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach’s influential book Entwurff einer historischen Architektur (1721) in an attempt to imagine a realistic, collective, and comparative approach to contemporary architecture.

Pier Paolo Tamburelli is an Italian architect, writer, and editor of Milan-based San Rocco magazine. In 2004, together with Paolo Carpi, Silvia Lupi, Vittorio Pizzigoni, Giacomo Summa, and Andrea Zanderigo, he founded baukuh, an architectural collective based in Milan and Genoa. baukuh has won numerous international competitions; produced master plans; built public and mixed-use buildings; restored public buildings; and curated exhibitions. The collective took part in the Rotterdam Biennale (2007 and 2011); the Istanbul Biennial (2012); the Venice Biennale (2008 and 2012); and was part of the research group for the Dutch National History Museum (2011). Tamburelli has lectured at a number of schools and cultural institutions, including the Architectural Association; Cornell University; EPFL Lausanne; FAU São Paulo, among many others. He studied at the University of Genoa and at the Berlage Institute Rotterdam, and has taught at the PUSA Aleppo (Syria); the Berlage Institute Rotterdam; TUM Munich; and FAUP Porto.
