The team of MAU develops its line through the participation in projects concerning public-private programs, promoting through architecturethe sense of community and the individual identities. We are a multi-disciplinary design practice working in the fields of Architectural, Interior and Urban planning. Our goal is to combine innovation and research with a professional completeness, capable of responding to complex programs at any scale. After working for international firms, we have oriented the research of MAU towards the integration artifice-nature, to create sensitive environments in perpetual change, which stimulate the interaction between man and environment. Our extensive knowledge of diverse physical, environmental, historical and social conditions, help to design and create better places for people. Today MAU is cooperating with different partners as Urban Development Ministery of Mali and Barbara Cappochin Foundation.

MAU is born to meet the needs of the concept of ‘urban regeneration’. Through the recovery and upgrading of pre-existing building assets, from the most degraded suburbs to abandoned buildings in the centers of the most important cities. Through Interventions that limit the consumption of land, safeguarding the landscape and the environment, mindful of sustainability. The purpose of the regeneration of buildings or spaces is alongside cultural, social, economic and environmental interventions aimed at improving the quality of life, respecting the principles of environmental sustainability and participation. Innovation in design, qualification of development models, and care of the relationship with the territory are strategic goals towards which our priority is directed to each intervention.
