The firm Arassociati was founded in 1997 by Marco Brandolisio, Giovanni da Pozzo and Massimo Scheurer, architects that started to develop their professional vision in the studio of Aldo Rossi since 1982 and becoming his closest collaborators in the Milan office. Since its beginning Arassociati has designed and constructed numerous buildings for both public and private use in Italy and across Europe. In its ventures, the firm seeks to expand its architectural prowess by pursuing continuity between the building and the environment of the city or territory while adhering to rational building construction principles.
