x2 architettura was chosen to be both a crafts and arts workshop and a design studioopen to multidisciplinary collaborations: Silvia and Marzia (2) run their own association which, with every work experience, be it public or private, crates a wide platform of specific skills which cross (x) with different expertise and professionals (from sectorial design, i.e. structures, systems, etc. to urban design, participation communication, coordinations, photography, art, etc.).
The “studio”, located in the city centre, has multiple desks with computers and is equipped with a laboratory for modelling and a “x room” used as head office of Modi Urbani, showroom to occasionally explain/show specific projects and devise new approaches to what is capable on transforming our beloved territory as well as to hold events and meetings.
