HPO took shape in 2017 around the Architecture Faculty of Ferrara, as a reaction to a condition of boredom after days of Brazilian samba and Swiss precision.

Once back from foreign experiences we understood the importance of creating an alternative to our curricular agenda The organization of lectures, events, workshops became the opportunity to understand the architect’s position, reducing the distance between what we are taught architecture is and what architecture can actually be.

This experience led us to the idea that “making” is better than rendering, creating our own opportunity to actively take part in the architectural scene.

As we realized the thin line between university and professional practice we had the chance to set up our first installations: vera plastica, zero, supercinema.

HPO is an experiment aiming to cross the line between an architectural practice and a cleaning agency.
