The work of Mitchell Anderson is characterized by multifaceted reactions to found objects, images, situations and their circulation. He recontextualizes the symbols human culture uses knowingly and subconsciously to contain memory and narrative in order to examine their veracity. At CONVERSO Anderson adopts the capabilities and dualities of the history and architecture of the space as the primary content through which his sculptural and video works are informed.Read more

LIVING - corriere della sera
"This NYC Upper East Side appartment reflects the Italian identity of the owner and her passion for the city she lives in. A dialogue between Europe and the US, narrated by a thorough selection of materials and design pieces. Brass libraries, a dark wooden floor, the Atollo table and a soft calf hair carpet contribute to a balanced juxtaposition of materials."Read more
The project aims to reshape the meeting room at Vogue according to my vision, with the outside spilling over into the inside, and briging a little bit of the Square, the Castle, and its Gardens in.
My main inspiration for it is " Le Desert de Retz", a famous garden located near Paris, a place of charme due to its cultural syncretism.
Sunday April 7th sees Locatelli Partners inaugurating its second Milan office in Via Corridoni 15, a special location in the heart of Milan which will allow people to discover a quiet new corner of the city. The building has been completely restored and covers 800 square metres spread over three floors. Each floor has its own history and atmosphere.
The entrance is elevated and presents a large open space with a transparent room in the centre used for meetings while the library acts as the start of an interior garden with cobblestone paving and palm trees that ascend from the garden below with the perimeter delineated by green walls.
As an architect and designer, creativity is my nature. And since inspiration is creativity’s quintessence, my task is to constantly train my eye, and look for new sparks in what I see on a daily basis. Think for example of plastic bottles, of their massive diffusion worldwide, and the way they affect our lives. While raising awareness, my goal is to combine my sense of responsibility and my most prominent feature: imagination.

Played throughout the space, the voice of an artificial intelligence will recite this constantly evolving text.Read more
