Marianna Galbusera and Lajdi Sulaj have been working together as architects since 2016. In 2020 they have founded their practice Studio Vlora, based in Zürich and Milano. Studio Vlora believes that spaces and ideas should be deeply connected, in order to create meaningful objects. The result must lead to an architecture that stands between intellectual complexity and universal understanding.
