Concept

The term ephemeralization was initially introduced by Richard Buckminster Fuller in the mid 20th century. It represents the ability of mankind and its technological advancement to achieve “ more and more with less and less until eventually you can do everything with nothing”. The accelerating increase in the efficiency of achieving the same or more output.

 

Ephemera is an architecture company of the 21 st century. We design structures which correspond and answer to the changing conditions of our lives. We believe that the opportunities and conditions provided by the digital revolution allow us to rethink the way in which we can approach architecture. We are a company set to change the way we perceive and manipulate space in the 21st century.
