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 contemporary practice. The Warehouse of Architecture and Research is extremely 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 furniture, schemes of urban development and questionable ideas. WAR held lectures at La Sapienza in Rome, Politecnico 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, and published in international magazines such as Artribune, 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 teachers at the Interior Design Course of IED in Rome and are advisors to the American Academy in Rome for the Italian Fellowship. 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.
