Architensions Selected to Design Installation for Coachella 2020

architensions for coachellaArchitensions has been selected to design an installation for The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2020, alongside Cristopher Cichocki, Kiki Van Eijk, Estudio Normal, and Oana Stanescu. Augmenting the festival-goers experience, the installations will infuse new color, light and meaning, and a unique sense of place and discovery into the Empire Polo Club over two weekends from April 10-12 and April 17-19, 2020.

Architensions (ATE), led by Alessandro Orsini and Nick Roseboro, is an architectural design studio operating as an agency of research, and based in New York and Rome. Architensions works at the intersection of theory, practice, and academia, focusing on social behaviors and architecture, both in continuous dialogue with the context and aiming at creating new experiential scenarios.

The studio seeks to define fields of actions for the built environment that reconnect urbanism and architecture, through spaces that establish a narrative within the city and oppose the paradigm of architecture as a financial tool.

“For us, being selected for Coachella is an incredible opportunity to develop a project entirely around our research. We hope that the project will allow the visitors to build a personal narrative around the experience of the festival intertwined with the architecture itself,” says Alessandro Orsini and Nick Roseboro of Architensions. This is the second time at Coachella for Nick, who played at the festival in 2016 alongside LCD Soundsystem, as part of a tribute to David Bowie and Prince.

Architensions’ work and research have been published and exhibited internationally at the Casa dell’Architettura in Rome, the Van Alen Institute, Storefront for Art and Architecture, Center for Architecture, and the Java Project Gallery in New York.
