Our method: narrative learning
We learn from experience.

Challenges, doubts, achievements, mistakes. This is what we are made of, this is our story. We learn from our own life and we try to improve day by day. But what if we could learn through the experience of other people? Through other peoples stories, we could exploit our potential better, deeper, faster.

Who we are

Isplora is an innovative approach to continuing education. Our intention with Isplora is to provide a platform for exploring Italy through its contemporary architecture; a source of inspiration and training for architects across the world. With the advent of online learning, the potential of providing this to anybody interested in architecture and Italy has exploded, but too frequently the results are uninspiring. A beautiful country deserves a beautiful articulation. Isplora’s rich, evocative video documentaries provide lessons on some of Italy’s most distinguished contributions to contemporary architecture, making it easy and enjoyable to earn professional accreditation, or simply deepen your appreciation of this exceptional country. Each documentary is a journey through the evolution of a new building.

Focusing on a key theme, uncovering the link between architecture and its surrounding landscape, the use of traditional Italian building materials as well as new high-tech approaches to sustainability, structural design and aesthetics. Isplora is not just a formal training program, but a platform providing alternative news and events along with ideas and inspiration that individuals can apply to their own work. Isplora pushes us to explore the world around us, widening our horizons, and encouraging new ways of perceiving the world that we create.

Isplora is dedicated to professional architects around the world who want to continue learning from Italy; for those in love with Italy, who wish to travel and uncover the architectural beauty of a country alive with creativity.
