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. Our work and research have been published and exhibited internationally at the “Casa dell’Architettura” in Rome, the Van Alen Institute, The 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 Architensions’ research on the fifth dimension of architecture, the experience.
