A pupil of Angelo Mangiarotti and Giancarlo De Carlo, Enrico Davide Bona is a lecturer in Architectural and Industrial Design at the Faculty of Architecture of Genoa; formerly editor-in-chief of the well-known magazine Casabella, he is the founder of EDB STUDIO, with offices in Milan, Genoa and Paris. In over
forty years of work in architecture and design he has tackled the most complex themes in a huge variety of dimensions: from the realization of large-scale works such as universities, libraries, hospitals and residences, through to lightweight
structures and industrial design products, integrating educational and scientific research also at other university institutes, at European and world level. In 1994 he received the San Carlo Borromeo award for his career, with Giuliano Colombini and Marco Zanuso.
