Biographies

Guido Mario Morpurgo, Architect PhD, is Associate Professor of Interior Architecture at Università IUAV di Venezia since December 2020. Graduated from Politecnico di Milano, he taught Architectural Design there from 2011 to 2020.

 

Registered to the Board of Architects of Milan since 1991, he began his professional activity in the studio of his father, Prof. Giorgio Morpurgo, then as an independent architect.

In 2000 he was invited by Prof. Vittorio Gregotti to join Gregotti Associati International, in which he was Associate Architect until 2008. During this experience, he has been involved in large national and international projects, participating in numerous competitions in Europe and China, in particular in Shanghai, where he was responsible, among other projects, for the architectural and urban recovery of the district of the former British Bund concession. Between 2004 and 2008, he was project leader for the New Urban Center of Acilia Madonnetta (Rome-Municipio XIII).

He has written essays, monographs and curated exhibitions on the work of Vittorio Gregotti, in 2007 for the São Paulo Biennale, at PAC-Milan in 2017, CCB-Lisbon in 2019.

 

In 2006 he founded with Arch. PhD Annalisa de Curtis the office Morpurgo de Curtis ArchitettiAssociati, on the basis of a collaboration that dates back to 1996, a period in which he received the first national awards in the field of architectural and interior design ("Domus / In-Arch", "Luigi Cosenza" and " Premio Giovani dell’Accademia Nazionale di San Luca").

 

Within a unitary idea of research by design, Guido Morpurgo integrates his professional activity with the academical, as complementary aspects of a single dialectical activity and as opportunities for mutual verification of the design methodologies and their declinations at the different scales of intervention.

 

Alongside his professional and academic commitments, he has authored essays, articles and monographs on design research in architecture. He has been a speaker at conferences in Italian and foreign universities and institutions (Milan, Venice, Palermo, Rome, Bologna, Turin, Naples, Lisbon, Porto, Warsaw, Kiev, Moscow).
