BDR bureau is a young architectural firm working on the various scales of the architectural project and in the field of urban research. Currently the studio is working on some projects in the context of reuse, on the theme of the rehabilitation of living spaces, working and education spaces. Founded in 2016 in Turin, BDR bureau is the evolution of the collaboration of two co-founders of bam!, Simona Della Rocca and Alberto Bottero. Over the years they have developed their activities through assignments, research and competitions, with projects ranging from the size of temporary installations to architectural and urban design projects. In 2017 they win Torino Fa Scuola competition, a renovation project for a secondary school in Turin, which is scheduled to be completed in 2019. Currently, they have been invited to exhibit an experimental project on the theme of the re-use of railway stations at the Biennale Venezia 2018, Italian Pavillon, as part of the “Arcipelago Italia” exhibition.
