«ACa is one of the most significant architect s of our time» - Tony Chambers
«Specialising in architecture, interior design and urban design, the Italian firm now operates on a global scale and his distinctive overtures have won him wide acclaim for their curvaceous forms and intelligent use of natural materials. Monolithic at times, shapely at others, Antonino Cardillo's work, while thoroughly modern, bears more than a passing affinity to the architecture of ancient Rome» - Thomson Carpnter
«The London Design Festival's dedicated entrance to the Museum at Exhibition Road plays host to the Postmodern reception, in homage to the Italian masters of the movement; the installation is a playful rendition of a colourful environment, for relaxation, repose and refreshment. Contemporary interpretations of Postmodern design co-exist with past realities, including elements designed for firms with roots in Postmodernism active today.» - Postmodern Cafe
