Unite/Unire is an installation centered on the intimate interaction between body and surface. The installation is composed of 16 bench profile modules designed to engage the body at three levels; Level 1: the self, level 2: movement and level 3: the other. The modules are connected via transitional zones creating a sinuous landscape with an emerging canopy equipped with a misting system.

Unite/Unire is the winner of the MAXXI Young Architects Program 2012 and was completed with Urban Movement Design New York.
