bREANDAN pATRICK oâ€™dONNELL Address: Via Fratelli Bandiera 94, 20099 Sesto San Giovanni (MI) ITALY Mobile: +39 3202107367 E-mail: email@example.com Nationality: Italian Australian (double citizenship) Date of birth: 10th October 1987 Gender: Male aBOUT ME... Born in Milano, I have double citizenship, both Australian and Italian. I live in Italy where I studied in an arts lyceum, and graduated with a Master in Architecture from the Politecnico of Milano. While studying architecture I fell in love with graphic design. As a result, I was asked to use my creativity in helping friends to design and market T-shirts and other small objects, in the process realizing that my talent and passion could have also been a good and fun way to earn some pocket money while studying. As this hobby grew it became much more interesting. When I got together with two friends we decided to consolidate our know-how and passion into something more serious. We have become consultants as corporate image designers for some important companies, helping in creating logos and sites during their start-up periods. Now that I have graduated I am looking for something in the architecture field, where I
desire to learn more and more and put into practice all my studies. I am a highly motivated person and a self-starter and have a successful track record of delivering quality results. I can operate effectively as an individual or as a key member of a project team. I self-taught all of the software I use, and I am quite fast in learning as I go. Designing for me is going through limits and compromises that come out during the planning process, constantly going back to the beginning of it and always searching for the better solution.

Milano Storica Building for residences and offices Milano, Italy
The building for residences and offices situated in the center of Milan in an old urban void near the Brera district. The project deals with an architectural sedimented contest in a delicate condition between the variety of historic buildings and much more recent buildings dating back to the more recent Italian architecture. The building faces the context in which it is located seeking an immediate relationship with the adjacent buildings while maintaining its distinctive character.

MILANO 2030 Urban expansion of Milano towards the the idroscalo (Milano East, Italy)
Milano is an active and dynamic metropolis. Like any great modern city, Milano is also expanding to come across the needs and requirements that a central and important city as Milano has so support. The first important argument that has to be focused on, is the fact that the problem of a city like this is not whether if it is going to expand, but rather, how it will be going to expand.This position leads to a different way of thinking a new urban scale project issues than those that could be found while trying to give answers to the first way of looking at the city (if it expands).

La Bancarotta Scenography for “La Bancarotta” by C.Goldoni
Prof. Pierluigi Salvadeo
Teatro Arsenale, Milano, Italy The competition for the scenography for the play “La Bancarotta” written by Carlo Goldoni, was launched by the theatre Teatro Arsenale and the University Politecnico di Milano. The aim was to design a new scenography for the small space of the Teatro Arseanel. The concept came out form the idea of oppression and instability that pervades the all play derived from the condition in which Pantalone, the protagonist, is. The scenography consists in a plane which moves in the space of the theatre. Each position that it gets represents a certain location concerned to one of the play scenes. Each scene setting is then enriched with various objects, such as tables, chairs, fabric, cloth, etc. ... to better characterize the play .

Darsena Vecchia Building for residences and commercial Genova, Italy
The proposal for the new building for residences and commercial spaces is developed along the seafront overlooking the Old Dock in Genoa. The site is a long, narrow quay, which is projected into the old port of Genoa, characterized by strong differentiation of aspects and uses all along its introns. The concept of the building is related to the idea of a telescope, and for this reason the building is divided into two different blocks by a corridor that tapers towards the end framing the lighthouse.

Prof. Alessandra Zanelli
Buildings for social housing and co-housing Milano, Italy The usable space for the two new buildings was bound by volume rules previously decided which it was necessary to follow. For this reason it has been taken the permitted volume has the starting point, extruded it and chaned its shape starting from studies of how the light was dropping on the elevation surfaces to have the greatest and best as possible exposure to light during all the period of the year. The elevations are designed using a regular shap (such as the squere) but using a random ditribution. In this way the compositions of the windows keep the shape of the volume as regular as possible.
