aut- -aut is a dynamic architectural practice combining several young professionals in an open, non-hierarchical way.

Context understanding is the fundamental precondition in our approach, definable as strategic and devoted to a cultural production which aims to propel social enhancement.

We believe that the architectural project, besides being an investigative and critical device able to condense and metabolise cultural contradictions, is a tool capable of catalysing and propelling a certain discourse through the envisioning of new and even provocative spaces.
