Itinerant Office interviewed 13 internationally-distinguished architects, prompting questions about the ever-changing architectural profession. The investigation, based on a series of documentary-style video-interviews, is divided into three parts: PAST, PRESENT, and FUTURE.

PAST questions the conditions that allowed each interviewee to undertake a path of success that led their firm to be among some of the most internationally recognised. Each architect explains the reasons behind their decision to study architecture, describing their first major commissions and revealing personal anecdotes from their younger years.

PRESENT, introduces the unique characteristics of each studio, helping us to understand how they work and how they have grown over time. Through investigating the organisational structure of each firm, their current fields of research, and the analysis of some recently completed projects, we are provided with an interesting overview of each practice, allowing us to understand some of the reasons behind their success.

FUTURE, aims to deliberate relevant topics of today and tomorrow. Each architect suggests a selection of key concepts that represent their own specific approach, whilst anticipating future trends on which we might focus to understand architecture in the future. Each interview closes with a piece of advice from the interviewee, addressing the new generation of architects and designers.

The video-interview series, conducted by Gianpiero Venturini in 2018, represents the follow-up of a broader research, started in 2017 with the 1st episode of the project. The project has been quickly developed into an international network of great potential which includes some of the most relevant voices in the architecture scene. Their views become a source of inspiration for emerging or experienced architects and architecture students, who are currently with a profession that is passing through a renovation process.
