Founded in 2001 in Reggio Emilia by Christian Gasparini, NAT OFFICE turns its attention to urban and architectural planning (from design to landscape). Architecture becomes a medium between Nature and Technology, able to give a sense to the antropic presence in the nature. The plan is thought like a complex and dynamic instrument, that allows the physic-perceptive and materic link between places and people.
Private and public architecture realizations are intertwined with the research on modular structures, to be assembled and disassembled in different configurations and are dedicated to different areas: museums, schools, commercial, residential, religious, landscaping.
