“We need to aim at essential things, to remove every redundant effects, every useless flowering, to elaborate a concept on mathematical bases, on fundamental ideas, on elementary structures; we strongly need to avoid waste and excess.”
"Design must not be understoond as a simple professional activity, but it is primarily a way of life, a way of relating oneself to life, and choice of behavior. A design´s most profound meaning is not so much that of building a house. but primarily building ourselves, And I also tell these young people that he design of their existence is the commitment which must be their main preoccupation; this commitment had to be continuous and total, not transitory and relative."
AG Frozoni (1923-2002) opened his studio in Bresica in 1945.
