5+1aa Architectures

The first monograph of the work of 5+1AA, a leading Italian architecture firm, enjoying European-wide success thanks to its original vision of architecture. 5+1 Architetti Associati was founded in Genoa in 1995. Having gradually built up an interdisciplinary team around the central importance of the project, this architecture practice faces the challenges of the city - its obsolescence and renewed vitality - by tackling the transformation of the real. This involves pursuing unusual actions such as dialoguing with the banal and the ugly or exploring the aesthetics of poverty and the ethics of perception. Their focus on the public and the social, its contemporary languages and related crossovers, creates horizons in which architecture is often expressed as a bringing together of actions and responses, all aimed at experimenting with the real. Special attention is paid to the subtle boundaries separating public and private, open space and enclosure, regional area become city and city lost in outskirts.
