the merits and banalities of modern civilization, so well exhibited by the
contemporary city. They try to (re)connect cultural artifacts with genuine
natural elements. Design teams collaborate with different disciplines to
experiment and test the results of collective design sessions, in order to give
an opportunity to innovative proposals. A project is conceived as a landscape -
the most essential and generous element. Without boundaries, landscapes are
endless and open; they connect architecture with the urban, interior with
exterior. Through the emphasis on landscapes, SeARCH promotes a high degree of
sustainability and environmental awareness within their projects.
