My research goals focus on collective housing from a gender-based perspective and "the land question", on the drawing tools as a bridge between actors across disciplines in the Hº and Tº of architecture, (built) environment, and visual arts, and on the reciprocal interaction of the multiplicity of architecture scenarios with its specific ecological and social landscape participation.

Michele Di Maggio is an Architect (Sapienza, Rome) Erasmus at ETSAB, Barcelona, and BIM Manager (CICE, Madrid).

Before approaching the world of architecture, he studies informatics. Today, freelance architect and together with an agronomist friend and with Virginia, they are co-designing a prototype project to transform a local ‘masseria’ from Puglia into a milestone of the new digital farming era.  

Alberto Paradiso collaborates with the translations and intersections of English, Italian, Apulo-Barese dialect, Portuguese, Norwegian and Spanish words, lyrics, patterns and meanings.

Collaborations, and collaborators are specifically shown per each project

We firmly believe in critical collaboration, active participation, and interactive dialogue with different actors across disciplines. For that reason, we collaborate with other voices, minds, and mediators at different scales and times, such as researchers, carpenters, linguistics, motion graphers, designers, local experts, agronomists, critics, other research-oriented practices, platforms, inhabitants, engineers, professors, psychologists, economists, among many other actors involved depending on the (virtual, presential, and/or hybrid site-specific) project.
