bio


A group of architects working and exploring through architectural fields since 2015.

We are interested in new ways of approaching our environments and contexts. We take into account the relationships that generate them, from the individual to society, and we focused on the understanding of architecture and urbanism as a piece of an interconnected puzzle.

Always working in-between fields, from urbanism to communication, from industrial design to art, from digital to pure analogic, we look for ways to expand our knowledge and understanding of our surroundings.

Scuole Innovative







Scuole Innovative (2017)




The new asylum of Savogna d'Isonzo will be a building for everyone and everyone, functional and scale of its small inhabitants. The project is based on a fundamental principle, simplicity. A modular system, made possible by a sophisticated and extremely innovative construction system (beech wood microlamellar panels), will allow the design of spaces through a participatory process with the look of a game in which professors, parents and children can take part of, to take decisions of the form and function of their future school.

This modular system as well as simplifying and directing shared choices will allow easier project phases management.

Scuole Innovative (2017)




The teaching methods of modern pedagogy have experienced a radical evolution over the last decades, just as the teaching (or learning) spaces and schools architecture. The project is aligned with the latest pedagogical techniques.

One of the main concerns of the project is to give a singular character to each classroom, a true identity of the function. The cover form of the base module will allow children to quickly associate a space with an activity.

Two design scales were also worked on, one being architectural (simple structural modules), to suit the adult person to make the building fully functional and one for children, working mainly on activators

·Rules of the game·

PREPARATION - Participants
Children, Professors, Parents, Citizens

STEP 1 - Simple modules
The simple modules are all structurally autonomous squares of 10x10m. Their shape changes only in the cover and each type of cover is associated with a function for reasons of perception and illumination of the inner space. Participants choose the simple modules that will define the future school. The simple modules are: Refectory, Aula Magna, Classroom, Laboratory, Direction, Services.

STEP 1a - Activators
Activators are complements that activate a basic module when associated with it. Participants choose which activators apply to the base module to make the desired function possible. The activators are placed following an L shape on two of the four sides of the base module and their uses are: Bathroom, Locker Room, Warehouse, Laboratory, Library, Computer Room, Direction, Kitchen, Infirmary and Laundry.

STEP 2 - The project lot as a game board.
A predetermined pattern applied to the design area determines where the simple modules chosen by the participants can be located. This allows the participants to define the school seating area and its construction phases

STEP 3 - The minimum functional system
The minimum functional system is the set of four simple modules prepared according to the given pattern. Participants are asked to choose which simple forms to associate and where to place them within the lot.

PHASE 4 - The Thematic Courtyard
At the heart of the minimal functional system we find the thematic courtyard, a key area with many functions, including distribution, filter (between sections and classrooms) and classroom lighting.
Participants will have to choose what attributes to each patio considering adjacent spaces.

STEP 5 - End of the game
The minimum functional system is replicable, following the pattern, until the project lot is saturated. Even when completed, each module maintains the best features.
