METROGRAMMA

THE STUDIO


Metrogramma is an international studio of architecture and urban planning based in Milan, Moscow and Doha.

Founded more than fifteen years ago through the partnership between Andrea Boschetti and Alberto Francini, the studio now has five partners and fifteen collaborators.
Interpreter of intellectual architecture and rooted in the metropolitan space, Metrogramma responds to the needs of places through an experimental approach which places man and his relationships at the center of each project. The studio’s research feeds on the ongoing dialogue between diverse disciplines and takes form in projects which tell of a revolutionary and utopic “contemporary classicism”.

Through the years, Metrogramma has followed an interdisciplinary path, experimenting with architectural projects on various scales: from their territorial urban scale project for the PGT, which established the studio on an international level, to completed projects ranging from residential to hospitality design, projects in both the private and commercial sector, and most recently, experimentation in design specific to the luxury sector.

OUR METHOD

PHILOSOPHY


Experimentation understood as the logical pathway and backbone of urban evolution is the basis of the Studio’s research design.

Griglia

The objective of the Grid is knowing how to operate the proper balance of commensurability and proportionality of the parts with rigorous precision, without which the project either devolves into incomplete and mutilated discontent or, on the contrary, grows heavy with excessive hubris.

Unità

The Unit is the clarifying entity of the architectural process from beginning to end. A composite and stratified unit, holding within it the complexity of the resulting spatial configuration, is one of the most significant roots of Metrogramma’s philosophy.

Matrice

Citing Giancarlo De Carlo, it is perhaps that in a fluid state, without the marginal constraints of space and time, architecture becomes “generous and meaningful for human beings as a gracious and delicate extension of natural order”.
