Architensions (ATE) is an architectural design studio operating as an agency of research led by Alessandro Orsini and Nick Roseboro based in New York & Rome.
Architensions works at the intersection of theory, practice, and academia, focusing on architecture as a network condition in continuous dialogue with the political and social context, and aiming at creating new possibilities for the contemporary city. The studio seeks to define fields of actions for the built environment that reconnect urbanism and architecture, through projects that aspire to challenge the paradigm of architecture as a financial tool. Our work and research have been published in international magazines such as Domus, Frame, Wallpaper, Architectural Digest, and exhibited at the “Casa dell’Architettura” in Rome, at the Van Alen Institute, The Storefront for Art and Architecture, the Center for Architecture and the Java Project Gallery in New York. In 2015, Libria published the volume “Forma Urbana,” a focus on the studio research through a selection of projects and writings. Architensions was commissioned a large public installation for the Coachella Music and Art festival 2020, now postponed. The studio was profiled as the Next Progressives in Architect Magazine in September 2020 and in 2021, Cultured Magazine selected Architensions as part of their inaugural young architects list.
