SCSTUDIO / Stefano Corbo Studio is a multidisciplinary network practicing public architecture, preoccupied with intellectual, economic and cultural contexts.
SCSTUDIO intends architecture as a collective form of knowledge which involves different actors and is produced in a wide variety of formats. In combining speculative research and professional practice, the office focuses on the comprehension of spatial and aesthetic conditions that characterize the late-capitalist architectural production and that manifest in a diverse constellation of types, typologies, and hyperobjects.
Stefano Corbo (1981) is an Italian architect, and Associate Professor at the Rhode Island School of Design. He holds a Ph.D and an M.Arch. II in Advanced Architectural Design from UPM ETSAM Madrid (Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura). Before joining RISD, Stefano has taught at several academic Institutions in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Stefano has written three books:
- From Formalism to Weak Form. The Architecture and Philosophy of Peter Eisenman (2014, Ashgate-Routledge)
- Interior Landscapes: A Visual Atlas (2016, Images)
- Notes from the Underworld. An Architectural Exploration (2019, Schiffer)
He has contributed to several journals (Domus, OASE, MARK, ArchDaily, Le Visituer, Drawing Matter, arq: Architectural Research Quarterly, PLOT, CLOG, etc.), and his projects have been widely published.
