false mirror office gathers five architects who share an interest in project and research: Andrea Anselmo, Gloria Castellini, Filippo Fanciotti, Giovanni Glorialanza and Boris Hamzeian.
Brought together at the Polytechnic School of Genoa, they have been collaborating remotely from different countries since the group’s founding.
Believing that new only originates as a reaction to the existing, false mirror office re-discovers the past as the present, re-signifies high as mass culture, re-values forms and functions.
As a matter of fact, false mirror office mis-represents Architecture.
