altro_studio + Anna Rita Emili

Altro Studio is an architectural studio based in Rome.  Anna Rita Emili is one of Rome’s most conscious architects and authors, with a long record of teaching at the Roma Tre Faculty of Architecture. From 1995 to 2000 she was a collaborator in the “Stalker” group, who investigated urbanism in art and constructivist theory terms. She is a passionate proponent of “New Brutalism” in architecture and is known for her spare contextualism. The firm’s architecture is primarily a response to natural and social phenomenon, rather than predictions of utopian architectural forms. The firm’s unique experimental approach is an extension of the joining of philosophical and architectural ideas, combining research in art and science to implement real world solutions that heighten the phenomenological experience in spatial volumes.
