TAKING CARE is a response towards unlimited growth and exploitation; it is a precise will for architectural design rooted in mutual respect towards human beings and environmental tasks, as architecture concerns both of them. TAKING CARE gives a direction to the many issues of contemporary architecture: art, landscape, economy, technology; and it results in the many works tamassociati is doing for health-care structures, cultural buildings, and public spaces in any context. TAKING CARE becomes a valuable praxis in architect’s work: the consciousness of creating always new meanings and possibilities for people in accordance to spaces.
