BDR bureau works in the fields of architecture, it is based in Turin and was founded by Alberto Bottero and Simona Della Rocca. It develops projects ranging from the habitat unit to the urban scale through public and private competitions and assignments. The studio pays particular attention to the architecture of re-use and the re-adaptation of living, work and educational spaces. BDR bureau’s projects originate through a broad interpretation of the sites and a deep understanding of the context, with the intention of transforming limits into opportunities. Each project experiments with spatial solutions based on the idea of an open, simple and unexpected architecture that meet the evolving needs of our times. The studio has received awards in various international competitions, and published in several magazines. In 2019 BDR bureau received the award for “Young talent of Italian architecture”, promoted by the national council of architects. BDR bureau has also participated in two editions of the La Biennale di Architettura in Venice: in 2016 (Venice Pavilion, with a vision on the future of Porto Marghera) and in 2018 (Italian Pavilion, with a research project on the re-use of the railway yards).
