We are glad to host at Superstudio for the series Habitat & Environment Andreas Faoro, who will present some of the most interesting and important projects of office UNLAB, on the question of the "limit", a fundamental question related to the topic of the Forum, one of the design themes of Superstudio. 

Andreas Faoro is  an  architect  and  urban  planner.  After  graduating  at  the  IUAV  University  of   Architecture  of  Venice,  he  obtained  a  Postgraduate  Master  degree  in  Architecture  and   Urbanism  at  the  Berlage  Institute  in  Rotterdam.  His theoretical  and  practical  work  focuses   on  the  relationship  between,  politics,  economy  and  large scale  urban  design, exploring  the   disputed,  conflicting  and  often  paradoxical  transformation  of  cities  and  urban   environments.  

UNLAB is an international office devoted to architecture. It is established in Rotterdam (NL), with branches in Venice (IT) and Tirana (AL) founded in 2008 and led by Andreas Faoro. Since then, Francesca Rizzetto joined the office working in partnership on many projects. UNLAB deliberately works exploring and investigating historical knowledge produced by the past, leading to a continuous scanning of the world that surrounds us.

The firm works internationally on projects ranging from interior design, residential, commercial, mixed-use private, public buildings, and masterplans.
