This Years AD100 are here! At AD, they continuously honor architects and designers—they are rock stars—but they do it very purposefully in their yearly AD100 issue, which features their eagerly awaited list of the world’s most promising talents.

The people who have the most patience, faith, and vision are the homeowners themselves, without whom these amazing, ambitious spaces would undoubtedly not exist.
Renzo Piano, an Italian native now living in Genoa, has built famous museums, gleaming corporate headquarters, and urban residential skyscrapers that have defined modern architecture in the 20th and 21st centuries. Renzo Piano eventually opted for a design of glass-and-steel structures that have the uncanny ability to simultaneously (and seamlessly) create a sense of identity and weightlessness after completing his ground-breaking and contentious inside-out Centre Pompidou museum in Paris (with Richard Rogers) in 1977.
The creators of Dimorestudio, Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci, from Milan, continue the tradition of visionaries who were not afraid to go bigger, bolder, and more colorful than ever before in Italian design history. But they actually turned their attention backwards in order to advance their own aesthetic. The designers’ obsession with the 1970s, which now permeates much of their work and is heavily influenced by the fashion industry—including an apartment in the Palazzo Fendi, the Hermès showroom at Salone, and a home goods line with Dior—began in 2015 when they became mesmerized by a 1970s floral pattern printed in a textile book.
The evocative commissions created by Laura Sartori Rimini and Roberto Peregalli, the late mentor and legendary decorator Renzo Mongiardino’s spiritual heirs, at Studio Peregalli in Milan, bring history to life. The scholarly duo envisions a broad span of bygone aesthetics, from Renaissance magnificence to Victorian exuberance, realized by professional crafters employing age-old techniques, as shown in their mesmerizing books, The Invention of the Past (2011) and Grand Tour (2018), both from Rizzoli.
The Politecnico di Milano-educated Vincenzo De Cotiis works at the intersection of architecture, interior design, and furniture design, following in the footsteps of Italian masters like Gio Ponti and Carlo Scarpa and valuing superior craftsmanship above all else.
