A12 is a collective of architects founded in Genoa, Italy in 1993,
and currently working between Genoa and Milan.
gruppo A12 works at the limits between architecture, urbanism and
contemporary art, seeking to experiment possible hybridisations between
different practices of communication and tools of research. Architectural
projects, graphic design, installations, videos, web-sites, written
texts, interior architectures, exhibition design, teaching, compose
the heterogeneous set of expressive instruments used by gruppo A12.
The group has constantly searched for interaction and collaboration
with outside persons who might contribute to enlarge the angle of
analysis and intervention on the contemporary urban condition. The
members of gruppo A12 are Nicoletta Artuso, Andrea Balestrero, Gianandrea
Barreca, Antonella Bruzzese, Maddalena De Ferrari, Fabrizio Gallanti,
and Massimiliano Marchica. For this project at the CCA, gruppo A12
collaborated with architect Francisca Insulza.
