Faena Collaboratory

The power of a new idea is an engine that transforms the way we live and think. Ideas are the most powerful tools we have to change the world.  

We foster artists as contributors in order to create a strong and diverse cultural ecosystem. Simultaneously, we promote cross-cultural understanding and cultural specificity to create social cohesion, connectivity and ever-evolving interdisciplinary art forms. 

Together we act as a catalyst, as an interface between dreams and reality to make these ideas real.

Activism and Urban Alchemy

The concept of urban alchemy goes beyond the renewal of the cityscape; protecting the natural world and finding a balance between urban, social, political and environmental realms is a core part of our mission —and a legacy for future generations.

Philippe Starck

Philippe Starck

Inventor, creator, architect, designer, artistic director, Philippe Starck is all of the above, but above all he is a man of honesty, in the purest tradition of the Renaissance artists. Despite more than 10 000 creations - completed or in the making - his global fame and his tireless protean inventiveness, he never forgets the essential. Philippe Starck has a mission and a vision: creation, whatever shape it takes, must make life better for the largest number of people possible.
