Ardielli Fornasa Associati is a design and architecture firm specialized in urban planning and architecture. Founded by Marco Ardielli and Paola Fornasa, thanks to the experience gained through a long-term cooperation with Marco Ardielli’s architectural firm, along the years Ardielli Fornasa Associati has demonstrated its talent and expertise in dealing with complex projects in Italy and all over the world. Its multidisciplinary approach to urban planning and architecture topics has allowed Ardielli Fornasa Associati studio to provide innovative and comprehensive answers to issues affecting the urban environment. Ardielli Fornasa Associati’s masterplans are a perfect combination of experience and innovation. The firm has been dealing successfully with strategic planning for urban restoration and all kind of architectural projects for new buildings, but also restoration and refurbishing of ancient buildings. It has been focusing mainly on architectural projects for public and private buildings for residential, commercial, cultural and leisure use. Ardielli Fornasa Associati’s team includes architects, urban designers, researchers and freelance experts, whose professional support contributes to provide innovative ideas and solutions, taking into account all the aspects – both visual and structural -, of the topics that may affect the urban environment. The team has garnered many awards in competitions and exhibitions, and its works have been shared through publications, lectures, meetings and other public events. Ardielli Fornasa Associati’s constant research on urban space is boosted by the innovative tools provided by AF/lab, a “think-and-do-tank” whose multidisciplinary approach is the necessary complement to successful projects. 

PHILOSOPHY

We think that every idea and every project must be considered as part of a communication process: “what” we say is no less important than “how” we say it, even when we are talking about (better, designing) a building, a holyday resort, a school or a shopping mall.

READ MORE

Therefore, we want to bring to life projects that can be part of this communication process by embodying and fully respecting the characteristics of both the landscape and the social context: that’s why in our opinion it’s extremely important to underline the cultural and socio-economic identity of both committers and environment, and the link between them. The strong identity of every project originates from the interaction between its function and its features: then the project becomes an original landmark, capable of describing both tradition and future. 

TEAM

Ardielli Fornasa Associati is directed by its
founder, Marco Ardielli, together with his associate partner Paola Fornasa.
The Board of Directors is supported by four Area Managers whose responsibilities include organising the work, ensuring appropriate technical standards and timing, liaising with freelancers, consultants, suppliers, providers, companies.

Paola Fornasa (associate partner) studied architecture at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Barcelona (ETSAB), and at the Istituto Universitario di Architettura, in Venice (IUAV), where she graduated with a thesis on the restoration of Bardolino’s urban waterfront. In 2002 she started working with Marco Ardielli first as an architect at Ardielli Associati, then also as a collaborator at IUAV. From 2007 Paola Fornasa is the director responsible for masterplanning at Ardielli Associati. Apart from her extensive work as an architect, she is deeply involved in studies and researches on public spaces, seen as a multi-level framework where architecture, urban policies, social and environmental needs can coexist through a coherent and consistent architectural view. Paola Fornasa’s background has allowed her to play an important role in international meetings, such as “Paisaje Rehacer” in Lisbon, organised by the Master di Architettura del Paesaggio (ETSAB) and ACMA, Milan, in 2008, and the sociological studies and researches about society, landscape and environment at the Università di Sociologia of Trento in 2010/2011.
