The studio manifests a shift of interest from the ‘ideal project’ into the understanding of architecture as a spatial and material practice, the consciousness of its social role and the economic conditions related to its production. We focus on minimum acts of architecture, structures and interventions in the belief that the will to act can bring about a great change.

The new awareness of small scale architecture expresses its social relativity as a response to the present precarious social, economic, and environmental conditions. The design process activates significantly different methodological tools. It pursues a reverse engineering, the reuse and modification of existing structures, participation, crowdsourcing, recycling.
