Park AssociatiSet up in 2000 by Filippo Pagliani and Michele Rossi, PARK ASSOCIATI is an architectural design studio which works on a large scale. The investigation into the dynamics and flows in urban places forms the basis of a wide range of projects for the tertiary, manufacturing and residential sectors. Equally important for the studio is the planning of interiors which pays close attention to both craftsmanship and design.

This adopts a transversal approach to the planning process and a vision that seeks to interrelate cultures and specializations, experiments with new technologies and is sensitive to the issues of sustainability and energy saving. Such an approach opens up new possibilities in terms of scope and vision, and on each occasion gives rise to original compositional landscapes where architecture, place, technology and materials combine to create different spatial forms. The projects on urban and architectonic scale underline the aptitude of PARK ASSOCIATI to research solutions that can combine local identity and technological innovation, this is confirmed by the recent awards in competitions and following realized projects. The projects of PARK ASSOCIATI have been showed in several exhibitions and published in Italian and international magazines.

Our objectives are:
– to create new relations and dialogue between the various aspects of the project, in which architecture is conceived as a system composed of the interconnected multi-scalar elements of urban, architectural and interior design;
– to approach each project as a new adventure without following pre-established models, but rather internalizing the demands of the client and taking on board the particular implications of the context;
– to develop the planning programme around the question of sustainability, with particular attention to environmental and energy themes.
