Architensions is an innovative multidisciplinary architecture and urban design studio dedicated to exploring the relationship between architecture and social development in contemporary cities. Through a process of reading the existing “genius loci”, the studio anchors each project to site specificity, with special sensibility for new buildings placed into contexts of particular cultural and historic importance. The reading of the context allows for an understanding of a place in time and space, with our minds and as well as our senses. The studio revolves around the partnership of founding principals Alessandro Orsini and Nick Roseboro. Their different educational and professional backgrounds, ranging from historic preservation to user interaction, allow for an expression of a project’s experiential qualities and for various methods of representation. Working closely with a team of innovative collaborators and consultants, Architensions offers an open platform for urban research and the tectonic aspects of architecture at every scale.
