BAUSAA (BAUStudio® Architects Associates) was created in Dallas, Texas USA  in 1977 as a theme parks design firm.

The founder partners were:

Walter Spaggiari  (1929 – 1994), a businessman and chairman of SDC group, one of the world’s major amusement company of those years,
John Martin, an architect specialized in Theme Parks design,
Franco Barazzoni,  an environmental architect.

Walter and John had a very long and previous experience together.  They had worked for years in the Amusement Park field.

The theme parks design activity started with the development of portions in some of the important American parks such as the ‘SIX FLAGS’ and ‘MAGICMOUNTAIN’ parks.

In 1981 BAUSAA moved to Reggio Emilia, Italy where the European office is still located.

During the following years, the know-how and practical knowledge of BAUSAA  has lead an appreciation all over the world. In order to be closer to some of the most important markets, BAUSAA has established new locations in Saudi Arabia  (Dammam, 1998) and in Russia (Moscow, 2004).

In 2012 BAUSAA  won the  “Golden Pony® Award” as best Theme Park Designer of the Year for CIS Countries.
