WE ARE A STUDIO
We are a studio that is very much in line with the characteristics of the contemporary world, that is to say that we are a widespread “cloud” studio, to use a word in vogue, a cloud, a container that is filled from time to time with the necessary contents to perform the given task.
In this way we move in the fields of architecture therefore the skills of the individuals are added to those of the entire group.
Both when it can become art and when it is not, architecture deals with the spatial qualities of the places it creates or modifies. Therefore it deals with organizing the vital space in which man acts and interacts with his fellow men and with the world in general in relation to nature and other living beings.
The task of architecture is to deal with the organization of space, which does not only mean giving shape but qualifying the space with the elimination or addition of an element, a colour, a material, shadow and light, cold and the heat and so on but above all to excite.
Spatial organization has always been the aim of architecture. Each era has had its spatial qualities. Contemporary architecture, as in every age, has to face the challenges that the contemporary world poses to it, in our opinion our age presents us with these challenges:
o Historical heritage, everything that comes from the past;
o Climate change, therefore sustainability and the approach to the environment;
o Exponential growth of the human population, which poses the spatial problem of where to make all these people live.
So the challenge that architecture must respond to is that of organizing the living space of contemporary man without destroying the planet.
Our study’s response to this challenge is experimentation through the use of information technology, which allows us to simulate the living space by verifying all its sustainability characteristics, especially environmental ones. Programs such as Rhino and Grasshopper, Bim and Gis and the Cam ones necessary for production are tools for simulating this vital space and its evolution over time but above all for imagining it.
Software, the network, information technology are the basic tools of contemporary architecture and come into play as early as the conception phase. The sketch translated into a project, the result of the gesture of a great architect, would not be able to respond to the needs of the contemporary world.
