Mario Cucinella founded Mario Cucinella Architects (MCA) in Paris in 1992. The studio is now operating in Bologna (Italy) with an international team of more than 40 architects, engineers and designers. MCA is a company with a solid experience at the forefront of contemporary design and research with an integrated approach to design work based on close collaboration with multi-disciplinary consultants to create an innovative and appropriate design response for every project and clients requirements. MCA delivers outstanding quality integrated design response at every stage and level. The care and professionalism concerns every step of design process, from architectural design up to landscape design, sustainability, interior design, lighting design, project management, artistic direction. MCA develops projects at different scales, from building design to product design, from environmental and technological research to large-scale urban projects. Sustainable building design and the rational use of energy is one of the central concerns in MCA’s work and research. The environmental quality of designs is analyzed and developed using specialized software and model testing in order to produce buildings of architectural quality with state of the art energy performance. MCA’s response to the environment includes the collection of data on the socio-economic contexts and vernacular architecture along with the analysis of local climate and eco-systems. Working in close partnership with local design firms, MCA always encourages the adoption of a design language capable of expressing the beauty and the richness of local cultures. This approach opposes the internationalization of building processes with indifference to sites, culture and energy requirements. Mario Cucinella Architects is progressively expanding its international outreach: the studio has designed projects in Europe, China, Western Africa, the Middle East, Australia. In each place, MCA strives to express, not its own architectural style, but rather the identity of places, people, materials and environments. MCA’s work, like its team, is multi-lingual, speaking as many languages as the places and the people its designs and buildings are supposed to serve.
