amid.cero9 cultivates a post-digital, afterpop approach to the contemporary notion of space that encompasses antropology, media, technology, politics and representation in projects ranging from architecture (Cherry Blossom Pavilion in Jerte Valley, Spain, shown at the 12th Biennale di Venezia, Giner de los Ríos Foundation in Madrid, Diagonal80 Industrial Pavillion in Madrid) to design (ESA Pavillion), ecosystemic studies (The Magic Mountain in Ames, Black Cloud in Rome, TRP in Venice) and hybrid urban projects (Äijäläräntä in Jyväskylä, or Hhouse in Balearic Islands).
