After graduating in architecture (at Politecnico di Milano, Italy, with studies at the Oslo School of Architecture, Norway), Massimo moved to London in 2000 to join the team of Claudio Silvestrin Architects. Since 2012 he has founded the Massimo De Conti Architect studio. Sensitivity, mental clarity and inventiveness are reflected in its architecture: elegant but not ostentatious, with less is more in mind. For years he has alternated design with journalism. He was editor-in-chief of BMM magazine and his writings have appeared in various publications such as Wallpaper*, GraziaCasa, Ottagono and Arkitekton. Since 2013, he has been working as a journalist specializing in architecture, design, art and fashion for Living.corriere.it, the online design magazine of Corriere della Sera newspaper and has an ongoing collaboration with the magazines Abitare and Interni. He is the author of the book collection of interviews Design Talks: Contemporary Creatives on Architecture and Design published in 2012 by Images Publishing. For Massimo, more than 20 years of adventure in London, where he currently lives and works, has become a network of international contacts not only in architecture but also in the media and in the art world. Passionate about communication, he developed the press and communication office for various architectural firms and curated design projects and exhibitions.
