We believe in architecture and design as triggers and strategical tools for the pursuit of a better life for people and the pleasure of an efficient creative process.
We consider design as a form of understanding and managing reality in order to progress towards new possibilities. In our thinking, a designer is much more than an artist or a marketing person and in any collaboration, project or job, we act as partners rather than consultants.
We love to investigate, reflect, debate, create and operate with a design-oriented attitude.
BLAST is the online platform where Alessandro Scarnato (architect PhD and professor at ETSAB) share ideas, proposals and analysis about design and urban culture developed on his own and together with other designers, researchers and enjoyable people from every field of expertise.
