Stereotank is a design studio founded by Marcelo Ertorteguy and Sara Valente. The practice is dedicated to the exploration of the common grounds between architecture, art and sound. The studio works as a laboratory for the experimentation and creation of architectural artifacts, immersive installations, hybrid objects and instruments often using repurposed materials and pre-fab systems, conceiving the end result with the potential of being further transformed and utilized as raw material for new projects, minimizing waste and energy consumption. Stereotank focus is to re-invent program with existing resources, with the aim of looking at old things with a fresh eye, relying on simplicity and intuition. Understanding urban scape as the medium, one of the main interests at this scale is the activation of public space through the insertion of participatory projects that engage, entertain and educate the users. Stereotank has had numerous local and international commissions working with organizations such as the Architectural League of New York, the Times Square Alliance, the NYC Department of Transportation, nonprofit organization Hester Street Collaborative, Kobe Biennale in Japan, Zooart in Italy. Ertorteguy and Valente hold a degree in Architecture from the Universidad Central de Venezuela and a Master degree from Columbia University GSAPP and they are currently based in New York City
