Franco Purini,

Born in 1941 in Isola del Liri (Frosinone), architect Franco Purini is Professor of Architectonic Composition and City Planning at the Valle Giulia Faculty of Architecture of the La Sapienza University in Rome.In 1966 he set up a studio with Laura Thermes.Together they have dealt with city planning problems and with issues of architectural language, following an experimental line characterized by a highly rational component but also based on figurative suggestions belonging to classical tradition.This research resulted in a consistent number of projects, including numerous national and international competitions, extensively documented on the most important Italian and foreign publications.As well as devoting his time to this sphere of activity, Franco Purini is also very interested in the so-called sketched architecture.Some of his plates are kept at the Projects Archive of the I.U.A.V., at the Museum of Architecture of Frankfurt, at the Museum of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires, at the A.A.M. Archive in Rome and in some private collections, including the Della Costanza-Turner collection in Atlanta.Franco Purini has set forth his ideas on architecture during cycles of lectures and seminars and during workshops at many Italian and foreign universities.In 1983 he received the Silver Plaque from the U.I.D. (Unione Italiana per il Disegno, or Italian Union for Design) and in 1984 the Argentinian Art Critics Association Award.Since 1985 he has been Honorary Professor of the C.A.Y.C. (Centro de Arte y Comunicaci,n) of Buenos Aires and since 1989 he has been a member of the National Academy of San Luca.The Purini/Thermes studio took part in the following editions of the Biennial Exhibition of Venice: in 1978; in 1980, building one of the twenty facades of the "Strada Novissima"; in 1985, with the project for the Accademia Bridge, which won the "Leone di Pietra" International Award; in 1988; in 1990; in 1991 and in 2000, with an installation which was part of the "Less aesthetics, more ethics" exhibition, the theme of which was the city of the future.The projects of the studio also appeared at the Triennial Exhibition of Milan in 1979, in 1987 and in 1995.In 1998 Franco Purini's work was exhibited at the Centro de Arquitectura y Urbanismo in Rio de Janeiro.
