Most may think architecture was simply in Tommy Zung’s blood. It’s a fair assumption, particularly with architects like Thomas T.K. Zung for a father, and Buckminster Fuller for a godfather. Fuller (or Bucky as Zung calls him), is widely considered to be the father of the geodesic dome – having popularized the structure’s use – and is one of the most influential neo-futurist architects of all time, was a major figure in Zung’s childhood. His father, a student of Fuller’s, had made a name for himself at Edward Durell Stone, where, among other major projects, he helped design the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, the New Orleans International Trade Mart, and United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland, before merging his own practice with Fuller’s to form Buckminster Fuller, Sadao, and Zung.

Interview: Architect Massimiliano Locatelli

Massimiliano Locatelli works to turn dreams into reality. Most of his early life was spent working towards a career in architecture, and by his mid 20’s he had already earned a PHD in Interiors and founded his own firm, CLS Architetti. Working between New York and Milan, he’s designed homes, stores, and entire buildings in cities like Paris, London, Moscow, Saigon, and many others. Mixing the natural with the fantastic, he has created spaces that wouldn’t appear in most architects’ wildest imaginations, even going as far as to design an entire store that appears to be upside down for Viktor & Rolf. He recently spoke with us over email about some of his projects, the techniques and themes he’s excited to explore in the future, and his lifelong love of architecture.
