Pier Vittorio Aureli cofounded Dogma in 2002. Dogma works on the relationship between architecture and the city by focusing mostly on urban design and large-scale projects. Parallel to this, the members of Dogma are intensely engaged with teaching, writing, and research.

Dogma is also active in offering consultancies to municipalities and agencies concerned with urban planning and architectural issues. Dogma’s work has been widely published and exhibited.

In 2006, the firm won the 1st Iakov Chernikhov Prize for the best emerging architectural practice. In 2013, on the occasion of the exhibition Dogma. 11 Projects, the first monograph on the firm’s work was published by AA Publications.

Aureli studied at the Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia and later at the Berlage Institute in Rottedam. He currently teaches at the AA School of Architecture in London and is a visiting professor at Yale University.

He is the author of many essays and several books, including The Project of Autonomy (2008) and The Possibility of an Absolute Architecture (2011).
