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 works at the intersection between theory, practice, and academia, focusing on social behaviors and architecture, both in continuous dialogue with the context and aiming at creating new experiential scenarios. The studio seeks to define fields of actions for the built environment reconnecting urbanism and architecture through spaces capable of establishing a narrative within the city and opposing the paradigm of architecture as a financial tool. Follow their work on instagram: @architensions

Zeina Koreitem

November 21, 2020 2:00 pm Pacific A Lebanese style, outdoor dinner at her home in Topanga, CA

Architect Zeina Koreitem is a founding partner, with John May, of MILLIØNS, a Los Angeles-based experimental design practice. MILLIØNS conceives of architecture as a speculative medium for exploring the central categories of contemporary life: technology, politics, energy, media, and information. Their approach insists on an expansive parallel project of technical, historical and cultural analysis, which surrounds and informs their work. Zeina is part of the design faculty at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) in Los Angeles and previously has previously held positions as Design Critic in Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and taught at the University of Toronto and USC School of Architecture.
