biography

ARX srl was founded as a synthesis of mixed experiences and professionalism in the field of design, engineering, management and research in architecture. Architect Paolo Di Nardo, only director and founder of the company, after decades of experience as a designer and university lecturer, decided to bring together the various professional skills he had acquired in a single container capable of following the “project” cycle from its creative act to its realisation, from research to the financial and management simulation of the completed work.
Therefore, the sectors involved are multiple and complex, just as the process of a contemporary project. ARX brings together a team of creatives, researchers and professionals who have been working for over fifteen years in the fields of architectural and urban design, visual communication and publishing, obtaining awards and prizes that highlight the studio as a reference point of excellence on the national and international scene.
