CHI SIAMO

Orizzontale è un collettivo di architetti con base a Roma, il cui lavoro attraversa architettura, urbanistica, arte pubblica e autocostruzione. Orizzontale promuove dal 2010 progetti di spazi pubblici relazionali, dando forma ad immagini di città dismesse o inedite. Questi progetti sono stati terreno di sperimentazione per nuove forme di interazione tra gli abitanti e i beni comuni urbani, e al tempo stesso occasione per mettere alla prova i limiti del processo di creazione architettonica. Orizzontale ha costruito e sviluppato progetti in Italia, Spagna, Germania, Austria, Grecia, Ucraina, Portogallo, Olanda. “8 ½”, il teatro mobile costruito da orizzontale nel 2014, è risultato vincitore del premio internazionale Young Architects Program (“YAP MAXXI 2014”) indetto dal Museo MAXXI e dal MoMA PS1. Recentemente il progetto “Prossima Apertura” di orizzontale ha vinto il concorso “Periferie” indetto da MIBACT e CNAPPC per l’area di Aprilia e sta entrando in fase definitiva.

Orizzontale è composto da: Jacopo Ammendola, Juan Lopez Cano, Giuseppe Grant, Margherita Manfra, Nasrin Mohiti Asli, Roberto Pantaleoni, Stefano Ragazzo
