By placing his project in Japan, Renato used his co+labo experience to the maximum. His Suzugami centre (below): "is an experimental public space, that allows various modes of activity, where sports, nutrition and education come together under one large roof. The project puts in place an obvious gesture: the mending of the forest within a lot currently in disharmony with the surrounding green context. Here a light structure defines the new space, contrasting the dynamism of the underlying soil. Harmony between buildings and users is the criterion that guided all the design considerations. The building was designed according to the principles of sustainable architecture in a multidisciplinary perspective. Energy supply is entrusted both to technical solutions and to the use of technologies that save resources. The layout and arrangement of the individual zones are designed to create optimal microclimatic conditions. All areas of the building with greater use intensity have been subjected to analysis to ensure the maximum level of comfort. The architectural design is further supported by structural checks and optimised through energy simulations that ensure the building's performance."
Renato seeks to start architectural career in some international architectural practice. As he has illustrated in a montage below, he will be not the first one to make such move, and all of his co+labo friends believe that he is going to be as good as Kobe.
