profile

Ghigos Group was born in 1998. Mission of the group is to create a place for debate and confrontation, characterizing itself through the exchange of knowledge, competences, and information. Since his inception, Ghigos Group has explored new fields of research, pursuing the dissolution of the disciplinary borders like opportunities of critical reflection on project issues.

Ghigos Group’s exhibitions, installations, and projects have been mentioned in national and international competitions, and published on the main Italian magazines. Ghigos Group become an architectural firm, Studio Ghigos, in 2004. Studio Ghigos maintains and shares mission, vision and interdisciplinary approach of the parent group, handling projects of different scale in various areas: from the exhibit to the graphic, from the design to the architecture: “blinking at” the art.

curriculum

During these years ghigos has employed all the different opportunities (competitions, exhibitions, installations as well as lectures) to keep developing its own research. It has been mentioned in both national and international competitions, published on all the relevant italian design magazines (Abitare, Area, Casabella, Cronache e Storia, Domus, Ottagono, l’ARCA), invited to held courses in universities such as the Politecnico di Milano and NABA.
Its distinctive feature is such a noticeable interdisciplinarity, build upon collaborations on single project with people from other subject areas: L.Cecchini, Microbo and Bo130, S. Boeri, L. Ponti, Studio Azzurro, Gruppo A12, A. Branzi, A. Guerriero, A. Mendini, M. Ragni, D. Santachiara, I. Rota, M. Morandini, C. Levi, G. Alviani, Chef M. Sacco are just a few names.
Actually ghigos is acknowledged in the european context as one of the promising design studios in Italy. After being spotted and published by Actar in the book about italian avant-garde, in 2008 it has been invited to report its research during the lecture about young italian architects at the international conference of architecture held in Turin, selected by Triennale di Milano for the project “Prime Cup” and by DaRC for the exhibition “Sustainb.Italy”, part of the London Festival of Architecture, and to the “Geodesign” exhibition with the “mobile archive”, which was a device for storing information and memories and we desire to share it with all communities and cultures.
In 2010 the project “panchina a dondolo” was chosen by the “Collection of Milan Triennale Museum” for the second edition of “The New Italian Design”, while some other works of the studio were inserted inside the traveling exhibition. Ghigos was invited to show a few projects at the “Ventisettetrentasette” exhibition at the Italian Pavilion during the Shanghai Expo. In the same year the exhibition for “DOCVA” was unveiled at the MAXXI in Rome, at the same time as the haute cuisine restaurant “River Club” in Beijing.
More so, Ghigos looked after the exhibition “Vignette dal mondo per i diritti umani” for the “Ministero per le Pari Opportunità” and it was selected by Maxxi and MoMA (5 european studios were shortlisted out of 35) for the partecipation at “YAP 2011 – Young Architect Program”; in summer the projects of these 5 selected studios were exhibited at MoMA in New York and Maxxi in Rome.
In 2012 Ghigos renewed the common spaces of the Architecture University for Politecnico of Milan – Campus of Mantua, and it was selected among the nine Italian designer studios who were invited to take part at the international workshop organized by Politecnico of Milan to develop the rice clusters project for EXPO 2015; after the workshop, Ghigos was charged with the preliminary project of the cluster.
In 2013 Ghigos was curator of the design section for the exhibition “Senza Pericolo” (Triennale of Milan) and curator of the exhibition “The thirteen chairs that were never painted in The Leonardo’s Last Supper”.
