Alfonso Femia and Gianluca Peluffo, founders of the studio 5+1AA in Genova, take on the theme of modernity as it applies to the relationship between city, territory and architecture, as a way of “bringing into focus reality itself.”
The studio is one of the most prominent in Italy, and it works internationally in an exceptionally wide variety of design projects: from urban furniture, to the redevelopment of entire areas, and even to organizing conferences on sustainability and social themes.
This monograph describes, by looking at over 50 projects, the path the studio has taken in its development and traces the authors’ personal and wide-ranging journey as they seek out architecture in the most diverse Mediterranean and European cities.
The book was published to accompany the 14th Biennale of Architecture in Venice. The studio was invited to participate in the Italian pavilion.
