100architects was born with the mission of improving our cities and the experience of citizens in the public realm, by providing high-quality, innovative and stimulating public spaces, inclusive & accessible to everyone.
Our architecture studio doesn’t do buildings (at least not in the conventional way). Through our experimental design approach, our work aims to transform the cityscape we know today into the hyper-stimulating one we envision tomorrow.
We specialize in public spaces & spaces for entertainment, generating innovative solutions that encourage the occurrence of joyful social dynamics.
In this Masterclass, you will get to know our design approach and methodology for turning conventional public spaces into captivating and hyper-stimulating ones.
