2A + P / by Michelle Linden

I discovered this Italian design firm through Eternally Cool... 2a+p's work covers a wide range of disciplines (most notably architecture and urban planning), but they give the same kinds of treatment to all types of design projects, large or small. They seem to be of what I would call the Rem school of thought, where many of their projects take their form from the extrusion of the diagram (but I won't hold it against them!). In fact, I'm quite drawn to some of their graphic and diagrammatic work...
