We think of the project as a real investigation tool "from within" the deep structure of contemporary world, like a laboratory in which spurious materials from the various expressions of contemporary aesthetics, interpolate and contaminate each other, opening up new and unexpected possibilities of configuration.
It is essential to uphold an attitude to curiosity, keeping a red line that helps build the planning steps which constantly analyses the trajectory taken.
(...) We have to search for depth and thickness even in the volatility of a consumer culture.
Founded in 1997 by Michele Molè, Nemesi is an architecture and urban design firm which operates on different scales of the project with a rigorous approach open to new challenges and where each point of arrival represents a brand new starting point.
Nemesi architecture stems from a deep and continuous research and reworking of contemporary forms of expression, combined with a careful study of reference context input in dialogue with the surrounding territory.
The work of Nemesi is the result of an analytical process which elaborates the various environmental, cultural, and economic factors that affect the project. The research and professional activities of the firm are reflected through its meticulous work on the form and language underlying it, able to express technological and functional content as well as performance through consistent and poetic writings.
The hallmarks of Nemesi architecture are found in its complex geometries, fluid spatial continuum with alternating full and empty spaces in close relation with the local context and the landscape, characterised by technological innovation and a sustainable approach to construction.
Nemesi has gained significant experience in the design of offices, residences, infrastructure, cultural and leisure facilities, public building and master plans, all with a view to satisfy the varying needs of public and private clients.
In response to the specific characteristics and challenges of the project brief, Nemesi' approach stands out due to its ability to focus on the potential of the project, while emphasising the functional, environmental and economic aspects.
The architectural language research is accompanied by an ability to control the project throughout each stage, from the feasibility study and the architectural concept, right up to final design and construction.
Nemesi works alongside the integrated architecture company "Nemesi&Partners", which has been in business since 2008 and is led by Michele Molè and Susanna Tradati, associate partners.
With more than 1,000 square metres, Nemesi is based in the district of Pietralata, Rome, at the former Luciani woollen mill - a building that dates back to the 1940s and that was converted in 2007 with the intention of creating a citadel of art and architecture.
Professionals at Nemesi include architects and graphic designers.
3D modelling and BIM accompany the project at all stages of development, from conception to construction and management.
Contemporary architecture and urban planning in Italy in recent years have undergone a process of trivialisation, with a consequent flattening of reality and loss of vision and enthusiasm for the future. Nemesi recovers the complex nature of contemporary society by using its projects to express a deeper meaning that goes far beyond the immediacy of vision. From the philosophical and scientific research on the interdependence of complex phenomena, Nemesi pursues "depth" as a stylistic form - as opposed to the simplification of reality - in keeping with the heritage and beauty of Italian tradition.
