Working directly in each project and supported by different architectural teams, Carlo Cappai and Maria Alessandra Segantini are actively involved in the different phases of each project (research, architectural design, construction and communication).
They believe that high quality in architecture can be achieved by a constant dialogue in very different directions. Dialogue with clients, consultants, contractors and final users together with the landscape itself.
The continuity in the design process and this attitude to dialogue will ensure the best results in a synthesis of functional, beauty and concept integration.
C+S think that each project is unique and should be able to translate into contemporary the historical, socio-political, economical, physical and climatic contexts which they belong to. They define their research TranslationArchitecture™.
