  • Rossi - The works of 'Aldo Rossi' were created by exploring the forms and spaces of the old city and architecture. Words such as historicity, locality, simpleness, solemnity, and continuity can represent his architectural thoughts. Every building contains a vestige of tradition, such as the closed facade of ‘Il Palazzo Hotel’ in Fukuoka, Japan, which reflects the image of ancient Italy by being adorned with circular columns. Inspired by the building blocks of the 19th century Berlin, 'Quartier Schützenstraße' in Berlin was formed around two large and two small courtyards that allow light to enter the block. 'Rossi' of ACCRUE, inspired by the hexagonal courtyard sky, brings a familiar, yet fresh impression with a mixture of metal and acetate as well as fresh color combination.
