Balsa.Crosetto.Piazzi (BCP) is an architecture office based in Córdoba and New York whose main ambition is the production of projects that regardless of their scale are capable of incorporating new discussions in the context in which they are implemented. We teach at the School of Architecture Urbanism and Design of the National University of Córdoba (Córdoba) and eventually at the Torcuato di Tella University (Buenos Aires). We have also been invited as critics reviewers and academic jurys at other institutions such as Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (New York), Andrés Bello School of Architecture (Viña del Mar), UDELAR (Montevideo), TEC (León) among others.

Our work policy is focused on taking private commissions public competitions and academic productions as platforms to push the limits of design towards a critical position committed to the economic, social, political, cultural and environmental demands that involve the present and compromise the future.  This website indexes part of that work: houses, buildings, minor infrastructures, articles, papers, videos, parks, urbanizations, museums, restorations, offices, courthouses, academic courses, conferences, curatorships and furniture.
