AR L A B engages in a collective pursuit of uncovering ideas and architectural processes. Our core is motivated by the modulation of the space through minimal interventions like devices and innovative design applications. Launched in 2019 by Marianne Ghorayeb, Romain D’Incau, and Diana Fueyo, our cross-disciplinary Studio is lead by a team of architects, designers, and artists. We produce urban design-related projects ranging in scope and context, from houses, museums, and public schools in Switzerland and France to small-scale interventions and townhouse renewal in New York City. Our projects emphasize human experiences by creating environments that are both environmentally and socially responsible yet aesthetically progressive. Our architectural practice is bonded to permanent research regarding historical references and new digital technologies. We want to offer “the best for the least for the most”. The best possible quality for the least amount of money, for most of the people. We use the tools of artists and craftmen (scale models, molding and sculpture), to articulate our ideas into materiality. Our work is an ongoing, ever-evolving process of collaboration. We like to approach each project from the context in which is set up, and we are proud of our  theoretical and practical “know-how”, which we have developed over the years. Additionally, we rely on the collaborative aspect of creating architecture with different eyes and hands, different cultures, countries and social backgrounds, as we believe that collaboration is the key to push any ideology beyond its boundaries.

“My main aim is to release a new vision of the urban landscape, which for so long has been conditioned and constrained to its functionalism. I propose that the need to redefine our landscapes goes through the need of redefining our core conception of urban architecture: what if the form was no longer an obligation but a multitude of possibilities that considered the materials and the potentialities they offer to us? New landscape, new conception towards a conscious and multidisciplinary design.”
Romain Triana D’Incau

New York / research

Romain is a designer and architect, master graduate from The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, Switzerland. Additionally, he has a background in construction management, obtained at The University of Applied Sciences in Geneva and is a WELL Accredited Professional, committed to advancing human health and wellness in buildings and communities around the world.

“In parallel to my architectural vision, leaning to the metamodernism, I cherish a genuine interest in disentangling and understanding the much wider implications of design in their product-user relationships, as well as their contextualization in our society and our cultural heritage. My attitude towards the motivations of building an urban environment reflects a consistent personal aim to comply with the theory and the history of metamodernism, by merging ever-evolving artistic values, philosophical learning, and professional experiences. I am deeply attracted to the non-conventional, ambiguous, and controversial architecture.”
