“Architecture is enjoying rude health” might be the comment that comes to mind while browsing this number of Incontroluce, packed with news of quality projects from around the world.

A much broader and more authoritative reflection on the general state of architecture was provided by the International Union of Architects World Congress, held in Turin last July. Here, the topic was addressed not only from the standpoint of designers, but from that of all components making up the economic, political and social system that dictates how buildings are erected, and more generally, how landscapes are transformed.

In effect, the quality of architecture derives from the synergy between a combination of factors and players, as expressed succinctly as long ago as 1962 by Giulio Carlo Argan, on the occasion of the first In/Arch awards offered in Italy by the National Institute of Architecture: “In addition to identifying those architects who have succeeded in synthesising and ultimately resolving all the energy components that contribute to a work of art, the in/arch awards are meant to reward political figures, officials of organisations, producers, art critics, institutes and enterprises, in other words the full sphere of activities and interests surrounding the artistic outcome.

It is therefore very important that awards given to buildings should recognise not only the architect and creator, but also the client and the builder.” The same complex picture underpins the quality of lighting design.

This is why in our advertising campaign “Partners for better light”, we present the installation, and all of the professionals who contribute to the creation of the lighting scheme: the architect, the client, the lighting designer, the installation contractor and obviously the iGuzzini company and its engineers.
