There is a saying that an architect designs for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is unknown. This explains the significance of architecture. Architects and engineers are truly magicians in their own right creating wonderful things for the world. Visvamitra takes pride in recognising the wonderful contributions of these magicians who inspire us continuously by their ingenious creations.
AWARDED TO Arch. Monica Tricario
Mr. Francesco Fresa, together with Arch. Monica Tricario and Gino Garbellini, founded in 1996 Piuarch, an international studio famous for its collaborations with the most famous high fashion brands such as Dolce&Gabbana, Gucci, Fendi, Givenchy.

It stands out for its commitment to the search for urban regeneration, the redevelopment of spaces. The studio’s mission is to develop compensatory actions that allow a return to a human and social dimension of the cities of the future, helping to restore the balance between progress and social interaction.
