Archizoom Associati (Florence, Italy, 1966 – 1974) is an Italian design studio founded by four architects: Andrea Branzi, Gilberto Corretti, Paolo Deganello and Massimo Morozzi. The two designers Dario and Lucia Bartolini joined the team two years after the studio was founded.
Archizoom was at the heart of the avant-garde in design and architecture. The agency tends to favour situations that allow users to play an active role in their environment.
Archizoom produced numerous critical texts and took part in the exhibitions Superarchitettura (1966), the XIV and XV Triennales in Milan (1968 and 1973) and the exhibition Italy: the New Domestic Landscape at MoMA in New York (1972). The group’s archives are now held at the Centro Studi e Archivio della Communicazione Università degli Studi di Parma, the Centre Georges Pompidou/Musée national d’art moderne in Paris and the FRAC Centre in Orléans.
