MAPA is a creative studio whose field of action is architecture. It is a practice focused on creating new material, digital, natural and cultural realities in a sensitive and ground-breaking manner. The studio works on projects and constructions of diverse scale and complexities across several countries. The practice has been exploring subjects linked with prefabrication and landscape through projects, constructions, prototypes, workshops, theoretical inquiries and exhibitions. MAPA’s projects have been recognized on awards such as Prêmio da Associação Paulista dos Críticos de Artes, Interior Design Magazine Best of Year Award, the Dezeen Award, the IX and X editions of the Iberoamerican Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism, and the Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize of the IIT College of Architecture. MAPA has been published on TIME Magazine, Financial Times, Wallpaper*, Casabella, among others. In 2019 MAPA launched INST, an initiative for the diffusion of the cultural dimension of architecture, a space for transdisciplinary reflection and experimentation with new media and forms of communication.


About the work
We Need New Limits

We Need New Limits is a physical intervention and a dialogue exercise between different ways of understanding and living in space. We Need New Limits is a call to coexistence that questions the limits established between traditional binomials – abstraction/reality, countryside/city, memory/future – that seem to blur in a world in crisis.
