My education gave me both technical and abstract concepts, enough, to firmly believe that it is possible to create something that looks good, and, at the same time, that is sustainable and efficient.

I acquired from my mother the passion for detail and through my years in Architecture school I developed an obsession with colour and the use of this in design and architecture fields.

I’m that kind of person that you will often see tripping over in the street because it's too busy looking up.
Celia Cardona Cava
I think that everybody has something to teach you and always think I will never know enough. But I try, reading, listening, watching, travelling and living as much as I can. Because architecture asks you to apply your experiences.

Work team: Natalia Arruda, Celia Cardona, Natalia Pedraza + collaborators. The main idea is create a route that connects Churchill centre with an innovative “New Energies Investigation Campus” at the north of Morwell, branded as “Re-Energy Valley”. This route represents a transverse process, which connects short-term projects to long-term projects of implantation, and maintains the set of ideas linked as a whole. Along this axis, people could find all kind of examples of sustainable energies, where all senses would get involved while walking through, biking or jogging. Along it, they will find, integrated with nature, dynamic energy , wind energy receptors and solar energy panels, inserted into the fields located around the path where crops will be grown for obtaining bio-fuel and biomass.

How to build a post-crisis bridge. Course : 2013/14. 4th year architecture project. Politecnico di Milano Prof: Maria Grazia Folli Work team: InĂŠs Baquera, Celia Cardona, Eric Folli, Luca Marullo. The aim of this course was to design a footbridge connecting a residential area from Milan, Cascina Merlata to the Area where Expo 2015 took place. We tried to combine a reduction in costs; choosing a recycled finishing material: water pipes, treated with water resistant paint, with a high performance of the structure; using a reticular beam. This choice was also influenced by the high distance between supports.
solutions to hack expo. Course : 2013/14. 4th year architecture project. Politecnico di Milano Prof: Maria Grazia Folli Work team: InĂŠs Baquera, Celia Cardona, Eric Folli, Luca Marullo. The aim of this course was to reorganize an area called Cascina Merlata, annex to EXPO 2015 and to design a hotel tower building. Our project wanted to put toghether flexible and modular spaces that could have further life after EXPO rather than a hotel. Main plan is structured with fix windows and structure (the essentials) and after that a series of house cubes are introduced to configure the space depending on the needs. The have been curated also the common spaces. Published in KoozArch 14

The city is a conglomerate of neighbourhoods, suburbs, â€œislandsâ€? that interact with each others. But in the outskirts they conserve a little independence. This work pretends to rethink this area starting from the pre-existence before EXPO arrived: the agriculture and the prision of Bollate. The south strip is dedicated to an agro-technological park where to grow energy crops and other renewable energies. The prison has been reorganised in levels where it is pretended to reinsert of prisoners inside society trough work and education.

A timeless stadium. Year 2015. (MSc.) Final thesis in Architecture. Politecnico di Milano. Prof: Maria Grazia Folli Work team: Celia Cardona, Eric Folli and Joshuan Tacoronte The final Master of Science in Architecture Thesis was a big challenge; to design a 45000 seats football stadium in the EXPO former area. We decided to use a non comon system, taking everything but the essential to a ring outside the building that could be used for everybody, not just the ones going to the game. The structure it is also the result of a formal research and testing, trying to combine aesthetics and performant at the same time. THe stadium was settled as the head of the new park we designed for the former EXPO area seen on previuois page. published in KoozArch
