Francesca Favero, Caterina Franco, Anna Frigerio. LabF3

Francesca FaveroCaterina Franco and Anna Frigerio (LabF3) began working together in 2013 on the redevelopment of Contrada Bricconi, an ancient settlement in the Orobian Alps, developing a project conceived for their  Master thesis at Politecnico di Milano. 

Since then, in parallel with their professional activities in the field of design and academic research, they have continued to work on the transformation of the Contrada in the multiple phases and scales of a project that is still in progress: intervention on the existing buildings, ex-novo design, landscape design, communication.
