  • Renzo Piano
    Renzo Piano is one of the most ingenious architects of his generation. Mr Piano's lifelong work of restoring and rebuilding historical sites of great importance for humanity's cultural heritage has been outstanding. He designed some of the world's most avant-garde architectural structures such as the Parisian landmark Georges Pompidou Center and the Kansai Airport in Osaka, Japan.

    He has won numerous international prizes and distinctions in this field and his work features in many books and films. Renzo Piano's restoration campaign of historical sites includes the ancient city of Rhodes, the city of La Valleta in Malta and the historical centre of Genoa.
