Andrea Maffei Architects was founded in 2005 and develops important and prestigious projects in Italy and abroad.
Andrea Maffei (Modena, Italy, 1968) began his activity working with Arata Isozaki, the illustrious Japanese master, in 1997 when he moved to Tokyo to work alongside the master. Responsible for the Italian projects by Isozaki, Andrea Maffei was project architect for the Palahockey in Torino, built for the winter Olympics in 2006, and for the Olympic pool and the Piazza d’Armi park in Torino, also built in the same year. This collaboration produced projects which are destined to redesign the character of some of the most important Italian neighborhoods.
Andrea Maffei is currently spearheading the project for the new Train Station in Bologna and for the CITYLIFE development in Milano, a great residential and commercial building in the former area of the Fair. This last project includes a 202-meter tall, a main central plaza with access to the metro line, and several residential buildings.
Beside his professional work, Maffei writes for several architectural magazines. Since 1997 he contributes to “CASABELLA”, directed by Francesco Dal Co, where he published articles on contemporary architecture in Japan. He edited the book Toyo Ito. Le opere, i progetti, gli scritti (Electa publisher, 2003).
