Fuksas, Massiliano and Doriana
Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas were both born in Rome and graduated with degrees in architecture from La Sapienza University. Massimilano opened practices in Rome, Paris, and Vienna, and Doriana became his close partner in 1985. The pair has won numerous titles and awards, including the Vitruvio International a la Trayectoria Award in Buenos Aires and the Grand Prix d'Architecture Française, and were named Accademico Nazionale di San Luca and Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres de la République Française. Though their professional practice centers principally on the creation of public works, Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas have also designed several consumer products that mirror their ingenious architectural inspirations through form.
