grooppo.org begins as a collective container of all the natural individualities of the associated subjects, a connection born outside of the rooms of the Genova University’s Faculty of Architecture.
The choice of the grooppo.org palindrome, citing the web and Stereolab, shows the will to act on the line between architecture and communication, between social perception of objects and individual identification through technologies, always working on multimedial projects. More than a mere wordplay it is a program of purposes, playful and plural like the vision of the world that the five members, out of thirteen initial ones, have. The design process, conscious of the state of the contemporaneity of the multiple scales of the objects, derives from a constant dialogue with the clients: since the development of the first idea, a continuous relation is seeked and built. Taking part in architectural competitions for collective buildings, schools and public spaces, as much as developing small handmade businesses identity, grooppo.org always pursues the complete design vision in his complexity. On behalf of a lively interest toward communication, it sets up actions and events that focus on issues of design and creative career management.
