RAMOPRIMO
STUDIO RAMOPRIMO is a Beijing based architectural design practice founded by Italian architects Marcella Campa and Stefano Avesani in 2008 working in between Italy and China. The studio’s name refers to the way they call in Venice some hidden lane and it’s the Italian translation of the Chinese term Tou Tiao, which indicates the first lane of a series of Hutong alleys in old Beijing carrying the same progressive name. It marks the beginning of a newly born urban process. Our design projects range from urban planning to architecture, interior design and graphics. Main focus of the studio is the interaction between the social and the build environment offering at different scales vibrant design solutions for any contemporary urban living need. In parallel with the design practice the studio is involved on the INSTANT HUTONG project [www.instanthutong.com], investigating contemporary process of rapid urbanization in China, relations between social and physical aspects of everyday environment and ways for people to reinterpret the urban landscape.
Studio RAMOPRIMO and its partners have been awarded the international Archiprix prize in Glasgow in 2005, Movin’Up prize in 2009, Pollock-Krasner grant in 2010, the third prize at the best Young Italian Architects Award in Venezia in 2012 and the bronze prize at China International Space Design Award in Beijing in 2016. RAMOPRIMO has been invited to take part to the World Economic Forum in Dalian in 2013 for a panel about Creativity and the Creative Process and to the exhibition Erasmus Effect at MAXXI Museum in Rome in 2014 as selected representative of Italian architectural practices working abroad. In 2017 the studio was invited to participate to the "The World in Our Eyes" exhibition as part of the Triennale of Architecture in Lisbon, Portugal.
