"taking care in architecture" is a response towards unlimited growth and exploitation; it is a precise will for architectural design rooted in mutual respect towards human beings and environmental tasks, as architecture concerns both of them. “taking care” gives a direction to the many issues of contemporary architecture: art, landscape, economy, technology; and it results in the many works tamassociati is doing for health-care structures, cultural buildings, and public spaces in any context. “taking care” becomes a valuable praxis in architect’s work: the consciousness of creating always new meanings and possibilities for people in accordance to spaces.
