Superstudio was an architectural practice founded by Adolfo Natalini, Cristiano Toraldo di Francia, Gian Piero Frassinelli, Alessandro Poli and Alessandro and Roberto Magris, in Florence in 1966, and formed part of the radical architecture and design movement of the 1960s.

One of the groups founding members, Adolfo Natalini said "If design is merely an inducement to consume, then we must reject design; if architecture is merely the codifying of bourgeois model of ownership and society, then we must reject architecture; if architecture and town planning is merely the formalisation of present unjust social divisions, then we must reject town planning and its cities,”

Istogrammi di Architettura, or the Architecture Histograms is a series of thirty 3D diagrams created between 1969 and 2000 with a uniform and isotropic surface, intended for use in the design of objects, furniture, environments and architecture. The theory behind the Istogrammi series was to reject classical forms of architecture and instead create a “behavioural scheme” which could be applied to varying scales and uses.
