Orizzontale are an architects’ collective based in Rome whose work crosses the fields of architecture, urbanism, public art, and DIY practice. Orizzontale since 2010 has been promoting projects of common relational spaces, giving form to both dismissed and unseen images of the city. These projects have represented the ground for experimenting new kinds of collaborative interactions between city dwellers and urban commons as well as occasions to test the boundaries of the architectural creation process.

Orizzontale has developed projects in Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria, Greece, Ukraine, Portugal, Netherlands. “8 ½”, the mobile theatre designed by orizzontale in 2014, was awarded the international prize of Young Architects Program(“YAP MAXXI 2014”) by MAXXI Museum and MoMA PS1. In 2017 Orizzontale was awarded first prize in the competition for the regeneration of Piazza Europa in Aprilia, launched by Italian Ministry of Culture and Italian Board of Architects. The project is currently under construction. In 2018 at the Venice Biennale, orizzontale is awarded the “Young Talent of Italian Architecture 2018”, which rewards the best Italian under 35 practice.
