About — January 23, 2013

We are a group of young Italian designers who met in autumn 2011 in Milan, during a collectivised artist residency at Careof, a non-profit space for contemporary art inside the Fabbrica del Vapore. Since, we’ve been working to pose questions, study and experiment with support structures for critically engaged design practices.

As designers, we feel deeply involved not only in the making of objects, but also in the creation of relations, processes, languages and collective imaginaries. As a consequence, we believe that our research should rise questions about what kind of society we want to contribute to with our work and to question the role we play in the economic system we are living in.

The Construction site is a virtual and physical space, where we carry on this research and where we try to translate it into practice according to modalities that are verified step by step. The Construction site is also a place in which we take care of our “becoming collective”. We are open to various forms of collaboration and to whoever is interested in participating.
