Marcello Guido (born 1 January 1953) is an Italian deconstructivist architect.

Born in Acri, he is based in Cosenza, Calabria.[1] He trained as an architect at the Faculty of Architecture of La Sapienza University, Rome.[2][3] He is a student of Bruno Zevi.[4] He is president of the Istituto Nazionale di Architettura (InArch) Calabria section[5] and a member of the Istituto's Administrative Board.[6]

He is regarded as an authority on the integration of contemporary architecture in the setting of Italy's historic city centres.[7][8] His "forceful and courageous"[9] Piazza Toscana archaeological site project[10] in Cosenza was awarded the Dedalo Minosse Prize (Dedalo Minosse International Prize for Italian Architecture) Special Prize in 2002.[11] The dynamisim of its conceptualisation has been favourably compared with that of the corkscrew lantern on the dome of Borromini's Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza.[12]

His work, representative of the deconstructivist style of architecture in Italy,[13][14] is the subject of Cesare De Sessa[15] 's monograph "Marcello Guido, L'impegno nella trasgressione" ("Marcello Guido, Commitment in Transgression").[16][12][17]
