STELLEPOLARI is a collaborative practice led by Greta Colombo and Lorenza Manfredi, a duo exploring the frontiers of landscape, architecture and arts.
We work together intervening on space: big or small, urban or rural, ephemeral or permanent.
We choose to express our vision through a variety of artistic methods,
which we apply both to site investigation and project narration.
Our approach is defined by collaboration, critical discussion and provocation.

Talkative Graffiti Project
During my stay at the WRSW | BRLN residency in August 2015, I focused on several locations in the city district of Bródno. Two meetings with local inhabitants have been organized, after which during the final workshops/ walk through the area the local inhabitants shared their stories (memories, daily life stories, imaginary stories and utopian stories) of urban experience.

OPENGAP COMPETITION -with Arch.Carma Serrano
Street art is known as the work of different kinds of artists who use public spaces for expressing theirselves through the use of various techniques.
This forms of art use element or perform actions in pretty busy public spaces and aim to surprise the viewers. Street art usually has a flashy subversive message of social and political criticism inviting to reflection.
With these sketches and toughts we were trying to propose through architecture a new kind of public space that hosts activities related to street art, fostering a climate of creation, education and relationship of users with street art.
