BINOCLE is the office led by Italian architect Lorenzo Bini since 2011.
Born in 1971, educated in Milan and Oslo, Lorenzo graduated in 1998 from Politecnico di Milano and worked for different offices in Milan and Rotterdam until 2003 when he co-founded studiometrico, his former practice that ceased business in 2011 after 8 years of shared partnership.
BINOCLE works on the transformation of existing spaces shifting from temporary structures to permanent buildings and gardens and avails itself of the collaboration of Giulio Giori, Anna Pierotello and Marina Tangari.
Beside his professional activity, Lorenzo is teaching at Politecnico and Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan and was visiting professor at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
In 2019 Massimo De Carlo Gallery moved its headquarters into a former apartment inside Casa Corbellini-Wassermann, a modernist building designed by Piero Portaluppi and built in Milan between 1934 and 1936.
An extensive renovation, conservation and philological restoration carried out for three years under the supervision of the Superintendent Bureau for Archeology and Fine Arts, made possible to open the 1000 sqm venue to the public for the very first time.
