For us public space is the leading issue of urban form


The main principles of our practice have emerged from projects that involve disciplines like urbanism and landscape as an integrated body of architectural design.
We have developed a strategy that approaches a specific design problem in its broader site context, both in terms of ground and program.

In our point of view the urban projects that qualify the territory, more than aiming to achieve a final formal image, they are interested in allowing happening different possibilities of functional and formal organization. Their basic quality is openness to future developments and structural variations.

Basic attributes that we establish beforehand are the dimensions of the elements and the density of the new intervention in relation to the surrounding areas.

In our opinion, the construction of the project should investigate a ground, not related to the classical Euclidean geometry but one where the urban and geographical materials of open space and the built fabric have equal value.
The process of sculpting a territory is framed between the following two poles: neither confrontation between figure and ground nor dissolution of the built structures into the landscape.
