reMIX is a Beijing based studio born from the experience that the three founding partners, Chen Chen, Federico Ruberto and Nicola Saladino, have developed during years of academic research and through the collaborations with various international firms, studying and inquiring diverse scales of interventions and procedural attitudes.
The studio expertise ranges from architecture to landscape and urban design. Moving on multiple grounds, analyzing, translating and transforming the interrelated pe-culiarities of performative logics, our work aims at establishing a transitional line of research that oscillates between processual complexities and material economies. The outcome is an expression of formal synergies, a modulation of analogical and digital processes, of diagrammatic and emergent organizations. Our structural geo-metries are gestural negotiations, converging results of constant conceptual revisions of forms and dogmas: mechanisms for debating, retracing and reframing.
A spatial chemistry is developed in order to achieve a synthesis of systemic perfor-mances, of signifying multiplicities, of social and environmental heterogeneities: ad-mixtures ethereally fluctuating, constantly transforming. The understanding of the ter-ritory and its constitutive and constantly evolving metabolic networks and systems of power relations is the terrain onto which the redefinition and revision of presupposed dichotomies such as natural / artificial and local / global can depart, where the envi-sioning and construction of future social assemblages can finally take off.
We aim in sum for a critical integration, a non-linear incorporation, of architecture and landscape into a synthetic urban hybrid.
reMIX projects have been recognized by a number of important international design awards, including: 2011 and 2013 ASLA Honor Award, 2011 IFLA Design Award (Third Place), 2009 XI Krakow Architecture Triennial (Grand Prix) and 2014 Qianhai Island Masterplan International Competition (Third Place).
reMIX has been featured widely around the world, in publications that include: Land-scape Architecture Frontiers, ASLA LAM, Community Design, Urban Flux, Complexi-ty and Sustainability, Frame, Future Magazine, Vision, GSD Platform, Homestyle, and a series of web-magazines like Dezeen, Designboom, Phaidon and Gooood.
Various design projects have been exhibited worldwide in important venues and events such as: 2016 Shanghai “Trans-Design” at West Bund Art Centre (where we also curated the spatial design of the section “Ideas in Action”), 14th Venice Architec-tural Biennale, 2014 "Making Community, Not the Map Nor the Territory” at Man-chester Center for Chinese Contemporary Art, 2013 Festival des Architectures Vives of Montpellier, 2012 Rotterdam Architecture Biennale, 2011 Tallinn Architecture Bi-ennale.
