Rome is the city where Air was born in 2008, from the meeting of Maya and Nicola the two founders.
The idea of the collective is to be inspired by a mixture of cultures and international experiences, to create a language whose common denominator is the experience, in the Eternal City, of everyone who has interacted with our work, with all the aesthetic and culture that it represents

Our Team

Nicola Cabiati
Born in Rome in 1973, he graduated from the Faculty of Architecture of Rome "La Sapienza".
He began his work experience in Studio Fuksas in 1999 where from 2006 to 2018 he was in charge of the workshop with the role of art director. He manages projects of international scope from the Cloud of the EUR, and up to the latest projects in which he is involved, such as Fontvieille in Monaco and Gelendzhik airport in Russia.
He coordinates international teams throughout concept, schematic and design development phases. In 2007 founded the architectural office AIR-Architects in Rome based in Rome and Tunis with the goal to define new types of theoretical and pratical relations between architecture and contemporary society flow.
His passion for drawing constantly leads him to experiment with the language of new technologies which in his opinion are an aid, a means, a tool but must never be the final result imposed by artificial intelligence.
