WAR was founded in Rome in 2013. Its essence lies between a mannerist architecture studio and an independent space for research in contemporary practice. The Warehouse of Architecture and Research is profoundly tied to the roman culture. Theory alongside practice, dialogue before design. In the warehouse, a collective hive-mind of documents, 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 and Triennale in Milan, Parsons, Pratt and Tulane in the United States. Its works have been exhibited in Rome, Venice, Milan, New York, at the RIBA and Betts in London, at the Biennale of Shenzhen-Hong Kong (UABB) and published in international magazines such as Area, Corriere Della Sera, Domus, IDEAT, Summa+, The Architect’s Newspaper among others. Today its partners are Gabriele Corbo, Jacopo Costanzo and Valeria Guerrisi. Currently, they are professor at the University of Pisa and at the Interior Design Course of IED in Rome and are advisors to the American Academy in Rome. Since 2019 they have been publishing the Panteon magazine. In 2020 they were included among the 50 best Italian architects and designers under 40 by Platform magazine.
