Architects and urbanists have the ability to synthesise the complexity of territory beyond narrow specialisation. Such synthesis is possible only through a qualitative and contextual approach to the territory. At the Architecture of Territory, territorial research and design are understood as highly contextual practices and as voices that inevitably negotiate within ongoing political and planning dialogues and trajectories.

Operating from a university, we are able to enter a particular political planning context with an independent position. The commitment to context led us to develop specific research and teaching methods: we don’t make a separation between research and teaching, nor between research and design.
