STUDIO RAMOPRIMO is a Beijing based architectural design practice founded by Italian architects Marcella Campa and Stefano Avesani in 2008 working in between Italy and China. The studio’s name refers to the way they call in Venice some hidden lane and it’s the Italian translation of the Chinese term Tou Tiao, which indicates the first lane of a series of Hutong alleys in old Beijing carrying the same progressive name. It marks the beginning of a newly born urban process. Our design projects range from urban planning to architecture, interior design and graphics. Main focus of the studio is the interaction between the social and the build environment offering at different scales vibrant design solutions for any contemporary urban living need.  In parallel with the design practice the studio is involved on the INSTANT HUTONG project [www.instanthutong.com], investigating contemporary process of rapid urbanization in China, relations between social and physical aspects of everyday environment and ways for people to reinterpret the urban landscape.


Among other recognitions received in recent years, studio RAMOPRIMO and its partners have been awarded the international Archiprix prize in Glasgow in 2005, Movin’Up prize in 2009, Pollock-Krasner grant in 2010, the third prize at the best Young Italian Architects Award in Venezia in 2012 and the bronze prize at China International Space Design Award in Beijing in 2016.  RAMOPRIMO has been invited to take part to the World Economic Forum in Dalian in 2013 for a panel about Creativity and the Creative Process and to the exhibition Erasmus Effect at MAXXI Museum in Rome in 2014 as selected representative of Italian architectural practices working abroad. In 2017 the studio was invited to participate to the "The World in Our Eyes" exhibition as part of the Triennale of Architecture in Lisbon, Portugal.





STUDIO RAMOPRIMO - 头条.计画.建筑.设计是由意大利建筑师马吃辣(marcella)和思凡诺(stefano)于2008年开创的,业务领域为意大利和中国。建筑事务所的名字来源于历史城市威尼斯的隐喻。与此同时,名字本身也映射了中国本地城市文化,因为头条的意大利译文表达了古老的北京胡同以条来命名的含义,它标志着一个新生城市建设的开端。我们的主要项目领域为从城市规划到建设、室内设计、制图学、公共艺术活动及安装。头条建筑集中精力致力于社会与建筑环境之间的互动,并根据不同规模,提供适应当代城市生活需求的充满活力的设计解决方案。近些年,头条计画建筑被授予了几个重要的国际奖项和认可,同时于2014年在少有的在立足中国并具有代表性的意大利建筑师中脱颖而出,很荣幸地被选中参加了罗马MAXXI博物馆关于海外意大利建筑师实践作品展。该工作室还与“速溶胡同”项目艺术领域非常活跃(www.instanthutong.com)。


马吃辣和思凡诺毕业于意大利威尼斯建筑学院。自2000年以来就开始研究中国城市都市化进程和城市的变化。他们2005年因关于北京和上海老城区的双人项目获得“全球建筑毕业设计大奖”(Archiprix International)。2005年10月他们移居中国开始“速溶胡同”项目,并多次参加中国和国际展览。马吃辣2010年获彼洛克-克拉斯那基金会(Pollock-Krasner Foundation)资助。他们现居住在北京。


“ 我们的研究探讨中国急剧都市化的进程,专注于日常环境的社会和物理层面之间的关系,并试图找寻重新解读都市景观的不同方法。对我们而言,城市的面貌是人们与其栖息地相互作用所形成的。都市分析为研究居住者和他们的生活方式提供了一种更为深刻,街头式的方法,体验、时间、路径、观察、偶遇和想法最终变得和建筑环境一样重要。我们希望用“微观城市互动”来表述我们的创作,它提出这样一种可能性,将小规模的都市空间临时用作公共平台,在这个平台上,观众的反应成为事件的主体。 ”
