The limits of public space
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.
UNLAB operates within the contemporary art and architecture realm and has collaborated with different offices: Grimshaw (UK), XDGA (BE), Stefano Boeri Architetti (IT), MGM Arquitectos (ES), IND (NL), studio eu (DE), Lucy HORTA (FR), Maria Papadimitriou (GR), Carsten Nicolai (DE), Crimson – Wouter Vanstiphout (NL) and public institutions such as TU/Delft, T?F The Why Factory, IUAV Istituto Universitario di Architettura Venezia, Berlage Institute, Politecnico di Milano, MDA, Domus Academy, Polytechnic University of Tirana – Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism, Iowa State University College of Design, USI -Università della Svizzera Italiana.
