ALTU is an interdisciplinary international architectural research group [Alexandr Kalachev + Tudor Cosmatu + Olga Kovrikova]. With its deep roots in architectural design it is inclined towards new territories, experimental design and towards developing new design tools and design techniques. We are searching for patterns in both natural environments and human-related processes in order to inspire possible architectural events.
Congruent to our own design endeavors we enjoy spreading the knowledge through workshops and seminars with a high emphasis on cross platform design, interdisciplinary communication, digital fabrication and manufacturing methods.
We strongly believe that the symbiotic relationship between imagination and technology should not be used as prosthetics of the design process but more as a reinforcing exoskeleton.
