Antonio Belvedere graduated in architecture from the University of Florence before joining the Renzo Piano Building Workshop office in Paris in 1999. There, he oversaw the Fiat Lingotto factory conversion project, notably the Pinacoteca Agnelli and the Faculty of Automobile Engineering. He was subsequently lead architect on the masterplan for Columbia University’s Manhattanville development in New York, before leading, as associate in charge, the 1,4 million m² masterplan for the ex-Falck area in Milan. Antonio Belvedere became a Partner at RPBW in 2010 and Director in 2014. Recently completed projects include the Valletta City Gate and Parliament building in Malta and the City Center Bishop Ranch project in San Ramon, California. Ongoing projects include the New Toronto Courthouse in Canada and the CERN Science Gateway, all led by Antonio Belvedere as Partner in charge until his departure from RPBW early 2019 to found his own architectural firm: BELVEDERE ARCHITECTURE.
The experience and philosophy of Antonio Belvedere draw on a twenty-year journey as one of Renzo Piano’s closest Partners and as Board member at RPBW. Antonio Belvedere’s work ranges from the urban scale to the construction detail, from institutional and cultural buildings to private, commercial and hospitality commissions. His design approach is based on principles such as Topos, a concentration of values engaging with materials, craftsmanship, local resources, rooting and a sense of belonging; Innovation, as a continuous exploration of the contemporary society and technologies; Sustainability, as the greatest opportunity of our time.
