the team


People at PA are very curious and passionate about cultural, social, technological and market trends. Our team is composed by a group of international fluid-thinkers whose activity is focused on innovative solutions in architecture, interiors and product service system design. Independency of thought and passion drive our team in its professional activity: we foster an holistic approach, which considers architecture and all branches of design as part of a wider and more complex system with consistent emotional, social and communicative fall-outs.
