The studio based in Bologna and Milan, is composed of an international team of more than one hundred architects, engineers, graphic designers, model makers and researchers. Founded in 1992 in Paris and then in 1999 in Bologna, the studio has a solid experience in design architecture that integrates environmental and energy strategies, making use of an internal R&D department, which carries out research on sustainability issues following a holistic approach.

All projects are united by a common focus on technological integration with environmental and climate strategies to create buildings that can reduce their environmental impact in view of the UN 2030 and European 2050 objectives. Therefore, the practice aims to contribute to the mitigation and adaption of actions that diminish the impact of climate change, on the one hand, and to create positive social evolution through greater public participation and sharing of urban planning and transformation processes, on the other.
