Rhizoma Design and Research Lab

RHIZOMA - Design and Research Lab is a space for research and design in the built environment, based in Rome and Melbourne.

Dorotea Ottaviani and Cecilia De Marinis founded RHIZOMA in 2020 but the idea behind is much older. The two met at the School of Architecture at Roma Tre University back in 2005. Since then, they have been discussing, exploring and reflecting with excitement, curiosity, and wonder on the contemporary issues of the built environment and the pioneering advancements of design research.
