The architectural and design work of the Italo Rota Building Office has focused for over thirty years on a constant and advanced cross-disciplinary research, from contemporary art to robotics, for the definition of innovative projects where humanistic beauty and sustainability become integrated and disruptive elements.
The application of the most advanced technologies, in collaboration with laboratories, studies, international universities prefigures new systems for living designed for the city of the “extreme present”.
The Studio is based on a renewed balance between art and science, which is expressed in a poetic that transcends projects, in search of that new feeling of beauty, which according to Gardner, reflects three basic criteria: “the ability to generate interest, the assumption of a memorable form and the aptitude to arouse further exploration ”.
