According to YAC, Architecture is the discipline that composes and structures the spaces where Man acts. It responds to numerous and different needs, through always-different expressions based on the intellect and creativity of each designer. We truly believe that the architetural problem cannot be solved just with a mere formal research, with functionalism, with the economy or technology of the artifact: in fact, the solution is made up of the aformentioned suggestions, composed and structured according to each designer’s personality and sensitivity.
