Welcome to the first episode of our Design Your Life Architecture series - From Lego to Skyscrapers featuring Luigi Rosselli. 

This series is dedicated to exploring the lives of architects, when did they first discover their love for it, what makes them tick, how do they handle the responsibility that comes with designing places, cities and buildings that will stand for generations to come.

With an eclectic mix of architects from across the world, From Lego to Skycrapers focuses on championing the person as well as the projects. Vince goes behind the façade of an architect delving into their personal and professional lives; from process, inspiration and career highlights, to juggling work with private and family life.

In this episode Vince and Luigi discuss his early life in Milan and how his surroundings were a big influence on his developing passion for architecture. Coming from a family of engineers Luigi and his brother would play with Lego and have drawing competitions of who could design the longest bridge. 

Self described as somewhat of a black sheep Luigi broke family tradition to become an Architect and by the age of 23 had landed in Canberra, Australia as part of a team tasked to help design parliament house. 

From here Luigi developed his love for the softer more humanistic side of architecture aiming always to create a sense of comfort and happiness in all the work he did. This was quickly noticed and through out the years he has won numerous awards, placing his work in the top tier of Australian design. 

Enjoy!
