On May 29, 2020, Design Director of Hope Design, Mr. Antonio Inglese, was invited to give a course at his alma mater, Sapienza University of Rome. The course is aimed to entitled “Objects and Places of Architecture-From Marketing to Realization in China” for the current Master of Architecture students.
Mr. Antonio has left many influential works in Europe and China. He has worked with many well-known international firms and now serves as an expert consultant for several urban development projects in Shenzhen.
Due to the Coronavirus, Sapienza University of Rome has converted their courses into online courses.
Because of the Coronavirus, Hope Design has delayed their work following the Chinese New Year. At the same time, Mr. Antonio, who was visiting relatives at his hometown in Italy, also postponed the arrangement of returning to ShenZhen.
During this period, HOPE’s Italian office, HOPE Shenzhen office and MLA+ Rotterdam office has collaborated in multiple locations to continue their work. With more than honor, they won the first prize in the Shenzhen Yantian Mid-Levels Park Area International Competition. In addition, Mr. Antonio also led the HOPE design team to win the bid for Shenzhen Longgang Zhang Bei Country Park and participated in many important projects including Tai Kang Shenzhen Garden.
This year especially marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Italy. We look forward to the early end of the epidemic in Italy and the restoration of the prosperity and vitality of the past.
