Type of project
  • Systemic changes

F.A.T. aims to provide a powerful tool for stimulating the construction of a precise theoretical apparatus among young architects.

F.A.T. it’s against professionalism and it can be understood as an attempt to bridge the gap between theory and praxis.

F.A.T’s aim is to reach the essence of the topics we are investigating in order to build a toolset.

F.A.T. work as stress test for ideas. We try to find weaknesses and points of validity of each subject.

F.A.T. starts where normally lecture ends and empowers young architects to critically react to the input.

F.A.T. works with texts in order to provide us a more abstract ground of discussions. It allows us to overcome the image-driven society we live in for deeper research

F.A.T. generates a digital Archive, where the selected texts and Materials are online and available.

Soon the project will be integrated with a video record of the talk session keeping trace of the evolution of the project.
