Here is another TAB 2019 Installation Programme Competition 2nd Stage participant – SET Architects @setarchitects. SET is an architectural, urban and design firm based in Rome, led by Lorenzo Catena @lorenzo_catena , Onorato di Manno @onorato.dimanno and Andrea Tanci @andrea.tanci . The firm believes in an essential architecture based on the study of proportions and the use of simple geometric shapes. Simplicity is the key theme of the entire creative process, from the abstract idea to the design solution as a response to the complexity of the functional programme. SET believes in a non-generic architecture that is able to relate to the local context and culture through the coherent use of materials, a critical approach to environmental sustainability and new technologies. This architecture emerges as a cultural factor in the local context and preserves the uniqueness of places. The design activity of the firm is based on constant theoretical research on public spaces and the modalities of interaction with those who live in them. The studio is continuously invited to present its work and discuss the status of contemporary architecture while leading various workshops and taking part in conferences and various cultural events. SET teaches at IED (European Institute of Design) in the interior design course.
TAB 2019 Installation Programme 1st Stage received 137 submissions from all over the world and only 12 architectural firms were selected into 2nd Stage.
2nd Stage design submission deadline is January 30 2019. The winner proposal will be built in August 2019 in front of the Museum of Estonian Architecture and will be opened to the public during TAB Opening Week September 11-15 2019. The winner and all Second Stage participants will be exhibited at the TAB Installation Programme exhibition and published on TAB 2019 website. Photos by Simona Bossi and Marco Cappelletti
