Architecture firm Luca Curci Architects presents Floating Glass Museum, a groundbreaking project where the boundaries between art and nature blur and the water becomes a canvas for contemporary expression. The project has been conceived in collaboration with Giulia Tassi Design and an international team of architects and designers with the support of artificial intelligence.

Inspired by the Venetian rich cultural heritage and the intricate craft of glassmaking, the Floating Glass Museum blends tradition and innovation, with cutting-edge design and a dedication to sustainability: through meticulous research of materials and attention to the surroundings, the museum will be a sanctuary where the history of glass meets the contemporary experimentation.

Floating Glass Museum represents a global initiative, a symbol of environmental awareness, a unique space where art, nature and tradition converge: the balanced fusion of contemporary art and sustainable design that will invite contemplation, reflection and discovery. The project will be presented in several cities affected by climate change like Dubai, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore and Busan.

Sea Levels and Climate Change

Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies, communities, and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, weather events are becoming more extreme and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. By 2100, scientists project that the sea level will rise at least another foot (0.3 meters), but possibly as high as 8 feet (2.4 meters), if we continue carbon emissions at our current rate (NASA – The Effects of Climate Change).


Luca Curci Architects deals with architecture design, from urban planning to interior design, bioclimatic planning and green building, consolidations and restructuring, structural calculation, architecture, and monumental restoration, urban design, leisure/sports spaces planning, design of luxury hotels, spas, tourist resort, furniture, interior, and industrial design.

Founded in 2006 by Luca Curci, an Italian artist, architect, and designer, the architecture firm has realized several projects of residential buildings, private houses, villas, restaurants, and stores.

The company has presented the project “Vertical City – Zero-Energy City-Building” at the Knowledge Summit 2019 in Dubai, invited by the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation. In 2020 has presented the project “THE LINK City-Forest”, a smart city “conscious oriented” for 200.000 people.

Luca Curci Architects has been published in many international magazines, like THE TIMES, AD Architectural Digest, The Guardian, El Mundo, CNN, Abitare, Global Construction Review, World Architecture, Landscape Middle East, The Huffington Post International, Polis Magazine, Inhabitat, Tall Building Magazine and many more.
