who am I My formation has involved Architectural and Structural fields. serious teamworker During this period i have been used to cooperate with other people: this has improved my teamwork skills and my adaptability to various context. By my side, on the other hand, i’m always very sure about my ideas and, thus, i high self-critical thinking accept other points of view only after valid motivations. I’m usually very critic about my work, so this is why i’m used to pretend more from my coworker. I have always played the leadership role as consequence of my elevated passion for the work and devotion. I’ve never interpreted this role just for imposition. strong passion

MIRROR | WALL The project of this high school in Pontedera, a small town near to Pisa, took its design basis on the dualism “mirror-wall�. The site was located between a tidy public green park (on the west side) and a degraded part of the city (on the east side), in a small-breadth/high-lenght site. The building found its form in a widly extended straight line, which presents a mirror glassed facade on the park side, so the reflect and extend the beauty of the nature through the urban context; and wood facade on the city side, so to metaphorically interrupt the degrade.


OVAL HOUSING The aim of the project envolved the realization of a housing complex, with complementary facilities, in a site surrounded by a high degradeted context. The design guide-lines have been extrapolated by the concept of oval, a geometry able to define a clear snatch into a square-based urban texture. The whole system has been based on the intersection of two orthogonal axex, where one of them open a hole through the designed building, and the other retrieves an obstacle-free connection with the city. The center of the composition has been highlighted with a second high-contrast architecture.


GREEN CHINA The aim of this project envolved the realization of an expositive pavilion supposed to represent each aspect of the green building design guide-lines. The design principles have taken inspiration from the idea of connecting two different characterizing levels of Shenzen: the sea and the surrounding mountains.


BAMBOO H-R This high-rise building is born with the aim of proposing a solution to the modern problems of our time. While the connection between the vertical direction and the reduction of land use is obvious, the idea of taking advantage of the height in a sustainability point of view can be considered as a trend of the last decade. Following these guide-lines, the biomimicry has been chosen as design principle for the concept elaboration, with the help of several fluid dynamic considerations and analyses for an optimal wind energy-producing configuration.
