stARTT is a design architectural practice led by Simone Capra, Claudio Castaldo and Dario Scaravelli.

stARTT is the acronym of office for architecture and territorial transformations, the choice of the name indicates a precise posture in the profession and architectural research that identifies the project as part of a larger complex territory in which people, landscapes, cultures and economy interact.

stARTT’s attitude is to work in the anthropised environment at several levels of intervention and at different degrees of complexity.

stARTT has received several awards and mentions including the European Architecture Award for Under 35, YAP MAXXI 2011, with the Whatami project; in 2012 it is invited to represent Italy at the international meeting La jeune architecture européenne in Paris at the Pavillon de l’Arsenal; in February 2013 was inaugurated th exhibition FUTURE: Architecture e(s)t Paysage_stARTT
on the office’s projects at the Italian Cultural Institute in Paris. In December 2013, stARTT was selected for Small Utopias, the exhibition promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the promotion of Italian architecture abroad. In 2014, stARTT presented its works at Fundamentals, the 14th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, in the sections Monditalia at the Ex Corderie dell’Arsenale and at Padiglione Italia.
