Renzo Piano's work has been called
high-tech
and
bold postmodernism
, but his projects show that he is much more than one style. His creations are open, light, modern, natural, old & new at the same time.

"Unlike most other architectural stars, Piano has no signature style.
Instead, his work is characterized by a genius for balance and context..."
Renzo Piano is also known as the master of museum design. The architect has designed 25 of them, 14 in the United States alone.

RENZO PIANO BUILDING WORKSHOP
Paul Goldberger, the architecture critic

"Beaubourg is a provocation, an apt description of my feelings, but has no negative connotations as far as the quality of the design and the reasons behind it are concerned. Beaubourg is a double provocation: a challenge to academicism, but also a parody of the technological imagery of our time. To see it as high-tech is a misunderstanding.” Renzo Piano
The New York Times has declared that this design "turned the architecture world upside down"
I don't remember a single thing in my childhood that was not related in some way to building.
You have to accept as an architect to be exposed to criticism. Architecture should not rely on full harmony.

“We not only design things there, but we also make things, and test them. Keeping some of the action together with the conception makes me feel a little less like a traitor to my family. The name is also a deliberate expression of the sense of collaboration and teamwork that permeates our work.” Renzo Piano

QUOTES

"The Modern Wing at
the Art Institute shares with these buildings
a classically modernist sensibility, an attention
to expressed architectural detailing,
and a fascination with the modulation of
natural light"Cuno,J. (2010) Modern Wing: Renzo Piano & the Art Institute of Chicago,The Art Book
The guiding principles of the project were the use of natural light and the conservation of works of art.

A special ‘solar machine’ was built with Ove Arup & Partners, to evaluate the light’s behaviour at various angles, the mechanics of the multiple refractions, and options for the filtration of UV rays.

In order to control and modulate both natural and artificial light, experiments were also conducted with various structural materials. This resulted in the creation of a curved structural element made of 25mm thick ferro-cement, which became known as a ‘leaf’.
The Menil Collection
Houston, U.S.A
Renzo Piano integrated many key principles of sustainable development. Its breathing double-skin facades provide natural ventilation of various buildings and optimum management of solar heat gain.

The glass facades allow the building to breath: glass louvers enhance air circulation and provide thermal comfort for occupants. They also prevent the green-house effect in summer. In the winter, louvers remain closed, capturing heat and diffusing it into the building.
Citeé Internationale
Lyon, France
Located in famous Golden Gate Park, and housing an aquarium, planetarium, and natural-history museum under two "hills" which are really a two-and-a-half-acre "living roof", the building looks like a part of the park from some views.

As Piano says: "The building had to be green and sustainable to go with its purpose—study of the earth and science. It is also in a very unusual place, the middle of one of the most beautiful parks in the world. You almost never get a chance to build something in the middle of a great park, so it needed to be transparent. You needed to see where you are.
