Architensions is an architectural design studio founded in Rome as a vehicle of research and led by Alessandro Orsini and Nick Roseboro.
Our research focuses on social behaviors and architecture, both in continuous dialogue with the context and aiming at creating new experiential scenarios. We don’t produce pretty images, but we define fields of action for our projects, abstracted urban devices that interpret context and reality. Our work aspires to create the development of a thought within the discipline, hence we believe that a project whether it is built or unbuilt holds the same value.
The studio is a collective of professionals from different disciplines and backgrounds bringing to the pin-up wall ideas and experiences. In New York, we started in 2008 with our heads in the clouds, our first office on the 45th floor of the Empire State Building. Today our main research base is in a former warehouse in Brooklyn and in our satellite office in the heart of Rome.
