RIZOMA ARCHITETTURE was founded in Bologna in 2009 and is the natural evolution of the experiences of three architects, Giovanni Francheschelli, Giambattista Ghersi and Gianluca Zollino, who previously worked together under the name “city-lab”. It specialises in design and research in sustainability and green architecture and it is driven by our belief in the necessity of finding new ways of living together that respect the environment and our communities. RIZOMA ARCHITETTURE is an organisation that works according to non-hierarchical principles and we believe that creativity, innovation and adaptability, rather than adherence to conventions, are key for producing the changes that we need to see in the world.
The rhizomatic structure of the organisation consists of a network of internal and external collaborators, we seek to work in particular with young professionals. RIZOMA ARCHITETTURE designs homes for families and communities of co-habiting families, projects for urban renewal and public spaces, commercial and office buildings and also food and retail spaces. All its designs and projects are designed with the same methodologies involving careful analysis of the site and the application of advanced green building technologies, to produce a building or a space that exists in harmony with its natural surroundings. Our aim is to contribute to the building of a world that respects the planet and all its inhabitants.
