Graduated in Architecture at the Polytechnic of Milan, during his university studies he works with Albini Helg Piva on national and international architecture and restoration competitions. In the same years, he works with the Lombardy Region on a research project on museums, which is followed by monitoring activities of exhibition spaces, design, publications and teaching on the themes of museography and exhibition. In 2000 he founds Studio AR.CH.IT in Milan, focusing its practice and research activities on the interactions between art, architecture, design and museums.
From 2003 to 2012 he works as artistic director of the Millennium Campaign of the United Nations.
Among his most recent projects: the masterplan for the Museum of Science and Technology “Leonardo da Vinci” of Milan, for which he also recovered the spaces of the former Cavallerizze; the Bitossi Museum-Archive of Montelupo Fiorentino; the forthcoming Museum of Contemporary Art of the Municipality of Rimini; the master plan for the centre for art and contemporary culture of the Municipality of Bari; the Shit Museum, with which he won the Milan Design Award during the Fuorisalone 2016; the itinerant sound installation Ulisse’s Syndrome by Soundwalk Collective, set up on the occasion of the Manifesta 12 biennial in Palermo, and later at the Bardo National Museum in Tunis and at the Beit Beirut.
Over the years, he has worked with national and international institutions and has collaborated on architectural projects with artists such as Anne and Patrick Poirier and David Tremlett.
Luca Cipelletti’s works here presented have been conceived exclusively for the gallery within a field of research that focuses on the theme of interdisciplinary cross-contamination between architecture and design, and on the deployment of the instruments, methods and materials of traditional workmanship.
