Urban Fields @ Rupextre 2011

We’ve been invited in Matera for Rupextre 2011. Here the presentation given or just watch easier the interactive pdf on issuu.com. Very stimulating discussion, indeed, with Lorenza Pignatti, Francesco Careri, Francesco Marano, Ivan Bargna! Matera, a really intense landscape, full of pathos you can’t be touched by.  A report here with some more images of the event.

In basic design we trust | in disobedience we teach | in solidarity we live


UNPACKED is an agile and fresh Office supporting a wide range of creative activities. Mainly is a common ground for speculations over cross-fertilizing projects involving diverse disciplines including art, architecture, urban planning, photography, design, business innovation, teaching, communication and more.

UNPACKED unveils the opportunities hidden into the folds of obvious and banal, through architectures, installations, exhibitions, performances, workshops, various experiments of communication and relational design, instant and spontaneous playgrounds, experments inbetween digital and analog.

The office based in Rome started in January 2005 thanks to the Young Entrepreneurs European funds “Sviluppo Italia” and is currently driven by Daniele Mancini and Irene Rinaldi, both architects and educators
