OII+ LAB

© Mattia Boero

Nonprofit organization dedicated to contemporary architecture, Zeroundicipiù (OII+ LAB) is officially founded in December 2010 as the natural outcome of a four-years experience in cultural activism leaded by architecture critic Davide Tommaso Ferrando, who in 2007 established, together with thirteen Turin architecture practices, the namesake working group in view of the publication of the book 011+ Architetture Made in Torino (Electa, 2008). Today, Zeroundicipiù counts on a constantly growing network of more than 30 architecture firms, most of which based in Turin, with and for whom the association organizes cultural activities such as conferences, debates, workshops and study trips.

Main goals of Zeroundicipiù are the promotion of architecture quality, the construction of a critical knowledge of contemporary architecture and the support of young talented architects.

In 2013 Zeroundicipiù has been mentioned as one of the practices “redefining the identity of Italian architecture”in an article appeared in “Domus” #970.
