OUR TEAM

Noumena is a collective group focused on design, research and education based in Spain, with nodes in Austria, India and Italy. We investigate between the boundaries of new digital paradigms and design strategies applied to architecture, robotics and fabrication, through a hands-on and experimental approach.

Founded in 2011 by Aldo Sollazzo and Matteo Di Sora, Noumena promotes experimentation in every task, pushing its own boundaries beyond conventional design limits.

We embrace data-driven design, mixing environmental strategies with computational thinking from urban scale to robotic fabrication.

Noumena leads and coordinates several international events and activities such as workshops, competitions and exhibitions, establishing a networking workflow based on open-innovation.

Besides that, we provide external services of consultancy, bringing our skills into other environments, offering our experience on computation and fabrication to external projects.
