Luigi Rosselli

M Arch EPFL (Switzerland)
NSW Registered Architect No. 4895 (Nominated Architect)

After many years seeking wisdom and knowledge from the world, from eminent architects including Mario Botta, Alvaro Siza, Umberto Riva and Aldo Giurgola in universities and workplaces in Milano, Lausanne, Switzerland and New York, Luigi settled in Sydney in 1984 and shortly after commenced his practice in Surry Hills.

He immediately embraced with enthusiasm the Australian culture, landscape and spirit and married his international upbringing to the local.  The result was a great number of buildings that are not parochial or provincial, and his best projects are the fruit of a marriage of cultures.

For posterity, he has bred a progeny comprising a successful architect, a challenging artist and a world recognised musician.
