About us

Quinta Colonna is an independent and radically interdisciplinary research/design collective focused on the many forms and shapes of the disciplines of architecture and design. It works on the contamination between theoretical studies and projects, in multiple disciplinary fields. We chose Quinta Colonna to be the name of our collective in honor of the pillar that stands in the middle of our first meeting room. Of course, because of our rebellious vocation, we enjoy the mood of the actual definition of the term.

Our webzine

Likewise, Quinta Colonna is a webzine (ISSN 2704-9922) licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International license. Its focus is on architecture, design and beyond. Calls for submissions are used in order to select contributions that create the issues. Each of them will be focused on a theme and will be edited by a team inside the collective. We are interested in a wide and open audience, both in terms of authors and readers. At the same time, our aim is to gather many kinds of contribution.
