Marco Ferrari

Marco Ferrari is the co-founder of Studio Folder, an interdisciplinary design practice based in Milan, working both on commissions in the fields of culture and the arts and on research projects examining the politics and visualization of spatial data. Together with Elisa Pasqual and Andrea Bagnato, he is the co-author of A Moving Border: Alpine Cartographies of Climate Change, a book based on Studio Folder’s long-term project Italian Limes, and jointly published by Columbia Books on Architecture and the City and ZKM Karlsruhe in 2019. He is Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia GSAPP and a Visiting Tutor at Royal College of Art in London, where he co-leads the architectural design studio ADS7 together with Elise Misao Hunchuck and Jingru (Cyan) Cheng.

Between 2005 and 2011 he has been one of the founding members of the architectural collective Salottobuono and a regular graphics editor for Abitare magazine, before being appointed creative director of Domus magazine in 2011. He has been teaching Methods and Tools for Representation at ISIA Urbino since 2010 and led an Information Design studio at IUAV University in Venice between 2013 and 2016.

Since 2012, Studio Folder has engaged in a variety of commissions and self-initiated projects developing visual identities, digital platforms, exhibitions, and art direction consultancy, while developing a comprehensive experience in the creation of information, statistical, and cartographic visualizations, both for physical spaces (in the form of immersive, interactive installations), online, and printed media. Studio Folder’s research project and interactive installation Italian Limes has been awarded a Special Mention at the 14th International Architecture Exhibition, la Biennale di Venezia, and is part of the permanent design collection of the V&A Museum in London. The work of the studio has been published widely and exhibited internationally, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, ArkDes in Stockholm, CCA in Montreal, Triennale Milano, la Biennale di Venezia, and the Oslo Architecture Triennale, among others.
