WAR was founded in Rome in 2013. Its essence lies between the concept of a mannerist architecture studio and an independent space for research in the contemporary practice. In the warehouse, a collective hive-mind of books and drawings, the team elaborates architectures and books, exhibitions and furnitures, schemes of urban development and questionable ideas. WAR held lectures at La Sapienza in Rome, Politecnico in Milan, Parsons and Pratt Institute in New York, Tulane University. Their works have been exhibited in Rome (Hertziana, MACRO, MAXXI), Venice, Milan, New York, at the RIBA in London, and published in magazines such as ArchDaily, Domus, Summa+, The Architect’s Newspaper.
