Onsitestudio is an architectural practice founded in Milan in 2006. The studio is headed by Angelo Lunati and Giancarlo Floridi. At this moment it employs 25 architects. They are interested in the intriguing relationships between the individual object and the city, between the need and specificity of the forms of a building and the collective character of the urban space, between the idea of modernity and the temporal depth inherent in the construction of places. They believe that these relationships can significantly inform the qualities of the architecture and that the city is still the privileged place of these possible resonances. On a number of different occasions, the projects confront reality, trying to amplify the already existing characters of the places and investigating new combinations between the complexity of contemporary life and the urban dimension.
