Third edition winner

Studioazue is a consulting and design company established in 2011 in Bologna by a team of architects, engineers, agronomists and sociologists with a professional experience in the International Cooperation sector.

The main field of expertise is the planning of community services with a special focus on waste management and sustainable urban development.
Social equality, economic sustainability and respect for the environment are the main inspirations for the projects.

They are implemented through an inter-disciplinary approach, promoting the participation of the community and full adaptability to cultural and geographical contexts.

The group shares a strong commitment to conduct research on informal innovation strategies and to develop “out-of-the-box” solutions for low income communities in urban and rural areas.


Between 2011 and 2016, Studioazue participated in different project themes to promote processes of transition to low carbon societies.
