This new site is a compendium of astonishing and award- winning architectures, many of which remain at the center of his discourse on the discipline and the poetics of design: ‘Never mind how sustainable the building is, never mind how green it is, if it does not move the heart, it’s just another building. Architecture has to move the heart.’

Sophisticated precursor and interpreter for half a century of a message of reconciliation between the natural realm and the artificial world, Ambasz has made his philosophy, summarized in the apt formula Green over the Grey, a distinctive mark of his work.

Inventor of prototypes, products, and objects of surprising variety and exceptional success worldwide, Ambasz has also conducted his personal research in the field of industrial and mechanical design for the development of components and products that have given rise to an incredible sequence of ideas capable of changing entire production systems.

Defined as ‘a man of many hats’ by The New York Times in a recent interview, Emilio Ambasz is not only a great architect and designer, but also an ironic narrator, a solid intellectual, and a courageous curator, too.

The Emilio Ambasz Virtual Museum website retraces and highlights this extraordinary prolificacy, in turn brought to light by diverse international author publications and monographs, exhibitions, reviews, and solo shows around the world (MoMA of New York-thrice, Triennale in Milan-twice, Reina Sofia in Madrid, and then Tokyo, Geneva, Bordeaux, Zurich, Chicago, Philadelphia, Mexico City, San Diego, and Saint Louis, to name a few).
