In the current condition of "commodification of everything," the border between public and private dissolves until it disintegrates. While the home is becoming more and more a place for work and an instrument of subsistence, domesticity invades every field of human activity, with banks that are camouflaged as lounges, offices as game rooms, and restaurants as kitchens. The work/consume/die human agenda is shifting towards an endless and sneaky productive leisure. Social media has put otium cum dignitate to work 24/7 and the sharing economy if, on the one hand, has completely distorted the housing market, on the other has converted intimacy into an economic asset.

Fosbury Architecture (F.A) is an Italian collective of architectural design and research based in Milan. Founded in 2013, F.A engages in a wide range of projects, from urban strategies to domestic environments, from independent fanzines to labyrinths. F.A's work was awarded in several international competitions including Europan13 (Leeuwarden), the Museum of Natural Sciences (Turin), YAC (Bologna) and Recycling Socialism (Tallinn Architecture Biennale). F.A's work was exhibited at the Chicago (2017) and Venice (2016) Biennale and Adhocracy Athens (2015) amongst others.

In 2019 F.A's work was presented at the 1st Biennale d'Architecture et de Paysage Versailles, at Lisbon Architecture Triennale and at the XXII Triennale di Milano, as curators of the Urban Center pavilion.

F.A recently published the book: Incompiuto – the Birth of a Style.
