Studio Polpo is a social enterprise architecture and research collective based in Sheffield. Our work is undertaken in collaboration with others, including people from different and diverse disciplines and backgrounds. This is an approach which we believe can lead to more critical, situated and responsive architecture. Collaborative practices allow us to address wider issues relating to spatial, social and ecological justice. We are connected to activist, community and cultural projects, and work with them to co-construct questions, themes, and sites for action.
