Furlan Beeli et al. was founded in 2016 by Giulia Furlan *1985 and Mario Beeli *1983.

Since the very beginning, Furlan Beeli et al. has been committed to explore both the physical and ideational potential of architecture. As an integral part of their work, Giulia and Mario have engaged actively in teaching and research activities.

Their practice aims to make architecture with dimensions that reach beyond the limitations of the measurable. An architecture that belongs to the domain of imagination but which anyone is able to decode into a personal image that is exciting and meaningful. They seek to make architecture that can trigger an emotional sizing which goes beyond facts to carve deeper into the lives of those experiencing it fostering their ability to shape the world through personal feelings and thoughts. Their understanding of space, as a site of physical confrontation imbued with experiences and fantasies, has its roots in their fascination for enigmatic phenomena.


Giulia Furlan *1985 is an architect practicing and teaching in Milan and London. She studied architecture at the Academy of architecture of Mendrisio, and graduated in 2009.
