Renzo Piano in conversation with the students of University of Genoa and Dresda

Last friday Renzo Piano sat down in the Classroom of Villa Nave with the students of University of Genoa and Dresda to discuss about architecture, people and beauty. A conversation wich allowed the students to really open their thinking about what the world needs, the ethic values of architecture and what the design field can do in the current situation.

Piano encouraged the students to be first and foremost passionate about their work and to be artists while at the same time being pragmatic, thinking about architecture as Octavio Paz wrote about the poetry "result of chance; fruit of calculation".
