Architensions / ATE is an architectural design studio operating as an agency of research led by Alessandro Orsini and Nick Roseboro based in New York and Rome. Architensions’ research focuses on social behaviors and architecture, both in continuous dialogue with the context and aiming at creating new experiential scenarios opposing the paradigm of architecture as a financial tool. The work and research of the studio have been published in magazines such as Domus, Frame, and Wallpaper, and exhibited at the Casa dell’Architettura in Rome and 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 office’s early research. Architensions was commissioned a large public installation for the Coachella Music and Art Festival 2020, now postponed. In September 2020, the studio was profiled by Architect Magazine for its “Next Progressives” series.
