LANZA Atelier is an architecture studio founded in 2015 by Isabel Abascal and Alessandro Arienzo in Mexico City. For LANZA, architecture is a means through which one can contribute to reality and position oneself in the world. The studio’s work lays emphasis on the beauty of design and production processes, as well as on the role of people involved in them. LANZA intends to carry out conceptually strong projects with simple formalizations and powerful spatialities that are intelligible to all audiences.
LANZA has been nominated for the 2016 Ibero American Architecture Biennial Award and the Mies Crown Hall Award for Emerging Architects, MIT Chicago, 2016, for the Debut Award of the Lisbon Triennial 2019, for the Dezeen Exhibition Design Award 2021, and for the Brick Award 2021.
The study is one of the winners of the League Prize 2017 from the Architectural League of New York. SFMoMA (San Francisco) presented a solo show of their work from March to July, 2018.
LANZA’s work has also been exhibited at the 12th São Paulo Biennial, at the Lisbon Triennial, both in 2019 and at Concéntrico Architecture Festival in Spain 2021.
