-scape is an architecture studio, located in Rome and Paris, selected in 2008, by the French Culutre Ministry, for the Nouveaux Albums des Jeunes Architectes Award.
-scape is born in May 2002, based upon an idea of Ludovica Di Falco, Francesco Marinelli and Paolo Mezzalama; they are all architects, who graduated between 2001 and 2002 at the Facoltà di Architettura, Università di Roma Tre.
The company -scape spa has been officialy set up in February 2004.
Alessandro Cambi joined -scape as a new partner in January 2005.
-scape defines itself as a "containing box", for mixed ideas, people, specific and multidisciplinary skills : the aim is the complete formulation of the building process ,in its technical, economical and architecttural aspects; those aspects are developed both in the office itself, and through a net of external consultations.
In the aim of studying and researching on architecture at every scale (from the "land-scape" to the "city-scape") and in relation to every context, -scape works on projetcs of different nature, dimension, location.
All the work of the office shows both those aspects.
Since its opening, -scape has been working with many different subjects, in the fields of architecture, landscape, city planning, structural and plants engineering, in order to satisfy in the most complete way the requirements of the clients.
The interest of -scape for the different natures of architecture comes out from the variety of the projects in which the office has been working.
