founder


Mario Coppola is an architect and teacher of Architectural Composition at the Federico II University. In 2008 he graduated with honors in architecture from DiARC, later completed a master’s in sustainable design at the Milan Polytechnic and worked in Zaha Hadid’s studio in London on numerous projects in different periods. In 2010 he returned to Naples, where he obtained his PhD in composition with a thesis on contemporary architecture read from the perspective of complexity by Edgar Morin, according to whom this work “opens up new perspectives”. On these issues he publishes essays (including La linea della complessità, 2015, La maniera biomimetica, 2017, D Editore), teaches and lectures in numerous universities (Architectural Association of London, Politecnico di Milano, IUAV, NABA, Accademia di Siracusa) and is a speaker at international conferences. In 2017 he inaugurates the personal exhibition of sculptures Cosmogonie at the Plart museum of Naples, publishes the autobiographical novel In cima al mondo, in fondo al cuore (Giunti Editore) and, in the same year, his manifesto of posthuman architecture comes out on Domus. In 2018 his work is exhibited at the Triennale di Milano.
