About me I Uber mich

I grew up in Lecce, Italy, in a region surrounded by a sea landscape and Mediterranean architecture. Six years ago I moved to Rome to start my architecture studies and in this city I had the chance to analyze architecture of different ages and style and to cultivate a particular sensibility to restoration. I define myself as a person that wants to constantly face new cultural and professional challenges and this charateristic brought me, after Rome, to Hamburg and Berlin, experiences that strongly influenced my personality and architectural sensibility. I am a dynamic and inquiring person and I like to continually learn from the people around me and to create stimulating collaborations with my teammates. After a six-month internship in the Berlin based architecture office Lèonwohlhage, I am looking for another experience to put my abilities to work and continue to develop my skills.

THREE HOUSES I Kita Wallenbergstrasse

The new Kita in WallenbergstraĂ&#x;e is composed of three houses that with a low volume and a recognizable roof stand out out from the green surroundings. The design plays with borders, between inside and outside, between the space and the volume. The cantilevering part of the first floor emphasizes the main entrance that leads to a double height atrium illuminated by a big skylight that enables zenithal light to shine above the stairs. From the atrium, both in ground floor and first floor, the teachers can have an overview to all the units that host the different groups of children and to the common spaces like the Kinderrestaurant and the shared playground.

Site Subject Team Organization Year

Landungsbrücken, Hamburg DE Project competition Emma Svanberg HCU Hafencity Universität Hamburg 2015-2016

LICHTKLIPPE I Bülau Wettbewerb

The project area is located next to Landungsbrücken and Elbtunnel, the most central part of the Hamburger harbour and next to Sankt Pauli, one of the main districts of the night life in Hamburg. The design plays with low and irregular volumes and different qualities of public spaces. The new public spaces are the two promenades, one next to the water and the other in relation with Sankt Pauli, and two squares on different levels, one lower in relation with the function inside the buildings and one upper panoramic. The buildings have different angles to have different perspective of the typical Hamburger harbour’s landscape.

WAZ Park Neue AdrESSEN I Essen Süd West Stadt Wettbewerb

A new park for Essen surrounded by three dense district is the new proposal for the former industrial area called WAZ. This masterplan is developed to create a connection between the Northern and the Southern part of the city, now separated from this abandoned industrial area. The new park is placed between Thyssen Krupp park and Stadtpark and create a new green identity for the city of Essen, while the new districts creates continuity with the city center. The three districts are designed with different typologies of building and public space thinking about the three main function: education, business and housing. To keep the industrial identity in the park the old “Druckerei” is re-used in its structure to create a landscape installation in the middle of the park.

District of Ostiense, Rome IT Academic urban project Mirta Ottaviani, Matilde Panascì Università degli Studi di Roma Tre 2016-2017

RIVERBANK OSTIENSE I Am Ufer der Tevere Ostiense

The project is a part of a new masteplan for the industrial district of Ostiense, in Rome, that is focused on university, connections and waterfront. The final result is a net of bike lanes connecting all the universities and the new student housing areas to the main spot of the district. All the bike lanes cross the main bike lane that runs along the river Tevere. The project creates also a system of public spaces along the waterfront using abandoned industrial areas, in particular ex Porto Fluviale (old river harbour) and Centrale Montemartini (former thermoelectric centre).
