About

orizzontale is an architecture collective whose primary interests are reactivation processes involving urban scrap. The studio was founded in Rome in 2010 and is composed of seven architects (Jacopo Ammendola, Juan Lopez Cano, Giuseppe Grant, Margherita Manfra, Nasrin Mohiti Asli, Roberto Pantaleoni, Stefano Ragazzo) who began to experiment with public space and new kinds of interactions between city dwellers and urban spaces during their academic studies. Orizzontale mostly focuses on giving new life to abandoned urban places and recycled materials by means of activating collaborative "public acts" in the form of semi-permanent architecture or installations, in which material and immaterial wastes mutually restore each other's meaning. In their live-footage videos, the architects document the "behind-the scene" moments and the overall planning process of their projects, from the genesis of the main ideas to the construction phases. Their video "Costruire Largo Milano" is the narration of a community open lab they conceived in order to transform a former car dealer's parking lot into a new shared space, while their construction documentary "8½ - YAP MAXXI" catches glimpses of the planning and construction process of the architectural installation "8 1⁄2" - Orizzontale's winning proposal for the 2014 Young Architects Program (YAP) at the MAXXI Museum in Rome - , a low cost and sustainable construction designed and erected by the collective in order to experience the dual nature of public space as a stage for public events and collective spectacles, and also an elected background for private encounters and relaxing intimacy in the middle of the city.
