The Italian architect Leonardo Savioli (1917-1982) studies in FLorence where he continued his career teaching at Florence University. His approach to teaching was seen as radical, he embraced experimental ideas and a creative dialogue.

In his course ‘Interior Architecture and Design, taught from 1966-1970 he embraced the idea of prefabricated modular concrete elements. He tested this ideas by building his own studio in 1968 – a structure made of steel with interchangeable concrete and steel modular pieces.
