contents This portfolio contains selected works from different kinds of projects developed through my university career at Poltecnico di Milano, Istanbul Technical University, extra-curricular activities -workshops and courses- and during the period I worked at Hootsmants architectuurbureau. These projects were chosen to enlight the diverse approaches and scales encompassed in my career and the skills aquired through the practice. Attention to details, light and creation of space are at the basis of a mostly requalification-focused work which shows my interest in giving new life to the existing, especially if part of the heritage. During the time spent working at Hootsmansâ€™ a hands on and experimentation focused approach has been developed.

A CULTURAL CONTAINER IN THE FORMER ENI VILLAGE BY EDOARDO GELLNER
site: Borca di Cadore, Veneto, Italy working group: Alfonso Di Sabato, Tommaso Lolli relators: Stefania Varvaro, Rossana Gabaglio co-relators: Francesca Zaffaroni
he Eni Village of Borca di Cadore (BL) was built between the tail end of the 50s and the first years of the 60s, thanks to the political and entrepreneurial ability of Enrico Mattei. It’s a large compound (over 100.000 sm), equipped with an articulate on various structure, and developed, by innovative criteria, in the great woods at the foot of Mount Antelao(3.242m), that dominates the Cadore area, and overlooks the village of Borca, some ten kilometres from Cortina D’Ampezzo. The idea at the basis of this visionary and innovative project-site, was a kind of social town-planning plant, thought up by the exuberant mind of Mattei himself, and then made true, with a great architectural quality, by Edoardo Gellner first and foremost, in collaboration with Carlo Scarpa for some of its parts.

The Colonia NEW IDENTITIES FOR THE E. GELLNER SUMMER CAMP
uestioning on how to properly valorize the setting, we have come to the conclusion that using an array of different functions would lead to real improvement. Given the big dimensions of the complex, we opted for alternance and ciclycity throughout the year of the different functions, in order to have a bigger response at different scales, without any risk of saturation. Everything, then, would be sponsored by the Dolomiti Unesco foundation whose ultimate aim is to safeguard and valorize the territory.
ART FAIR AND FILM FESTIVAL
DOLOMITI UNESCO FOUNDATION
Being both affiliated and synchronized to sponsorizing entities (i.e. Biennale di Venezia and Festival del cinema di Venezia), they represent a try to recall a national audience that could improve the colony’s name.
The Colonia will host offices, workshop, libraries, formation (about the safeguard of the mountain environment) and whatever needed to create a cultural hub. Formation courses for intelligent start-ups and entrepeneurial formation will be held too.

A cafeteria benefits from the generous dimensions of the first floor and a cinema-auditorium; defined by the addition of a wooden volume set on a concrete basement, fits in the back side of the ground floor. The skylights link the two floors both internally and externally, creating an intense relation with the incoming light.

The MF dorm, like the others F and M, is charachterized by a modular structure made of concrete portals and metal IPEs columns and ramps distribution. Starting from the valorization of this aspect and keeping the functional division between “central corps” and services in the “heads”, we doubled the height inserting a light structure and modfying the norther facade, thus enabling light to spread.

Orsoline community RECEPTION AND RECREATION IN FIDENZA
site: former Orsoline Monastery, Fidenza working group: Federica Novati professors: Domenico Chizzoniti assistants: Luca Preis, Monica Moscatelli
he Orsoline community idea derives from the need of a meeting point for the entire city and the need of a stopover for the peregrines walking the ancient Via Francigena, a segment of the wider path linking Rome to Canterbury through central Europe. The existing building, a convent of the Orsoline monastic order, throws its roots back in the XV century and has undergone a number of renovation works in order to modify and adjust the structure to the most diverse uses it has been having through the centuries. The project is functionally and structurally devided into two parts: the hosting function provided by the Hostel in the minor courtyard and the didactic function of the civic center, in relation with the old chapel and the Renessaince museum, situated in the ground floor of the northern wing. The two functions are both served by a third one:a bicycle cooperative used both by citizens and peregrins. ď€˛ď€´

Project drawings URBAN CONTEXT, PLANTS
hat is best shown in the drawings, is the south-western wing’s incompleteness which turned out to be the keystone and fulcrum of our project. The structure of the project tries to enhance the architectural value of the existing part and is composed by a series of parallel load-bearing partition walls which recall the modular dimensions of the double courtyard; developing an organic system of well-defined but connected and communicating volumes.
FUNCTIONS: The hosting function is the beating heart of the project: it keeps it active both during daytime and night hours; offering to peregrines hospitality and a number of facilities distributed in three different volumes. The Civic Center, entirely hosted by a new construction building, is generated by a series of parallel walls whose rythm is interrupted by a 45 degrees rotated volume (on the grounds of the ancient “Terraglio”). The basement itself, at - 2.60 meters, connects the new intervention with the existing, thanks to the old chapel, turned into an auditorium through a light steel structure.

See through Mantua A NEW EXPOSITION GALLERY IN THE SECRET APARTMENT OF PALAZZO TE
year: 2014.15 site: Palazzo Te, Mantova working group: Greta Bosio, Giulia Dagheti, Alessandra Guizzi professors: Stefania Varvaro, Rossana Gabaglio assistants: Luca Faverio, Caterina Gallizioli
alazzo Te, built between 1524 and 1534 on commission of Federico II Gonzaga, is the most famous work of the Italian architect Giulio Romano. The complex is now home to the civic museum and, since 1990, the Te International Center of Art and Culture which organizes ancient and modern art and architecture exhibitions. The big complex hides, in one of its corners, a so called Secret Apartment and, with it, a secret garden: an exquisite and precious piece of art with frescos, mosaics, voulted ceilings and rich vegetation. The request is to transform It into a flexible exhibition space, where the new structure won’t cover the rich walls’ and ceyling’s decoration and that could host different functions in order to attract more people.

Project drawings PLANS, SECTIONS AND SCHEMES
The exhibition is therefore generated by a geometric grid, only interrupted in a few occasions, that helps giving armony and coherence to the entire system.
Another key concept is the “see through”effect, given with the combination of metal profiles, to create paths and ambients in a delicate way. The decorations of the apartment are still visible and their relation with the project is represented with more density or expansion of the elements: they are enlighted or hidden, depending on the need.
Two submodules 1.1 m and 0.5 m stand at the basis of the dimensions of seats, panels and all the other elements.
The idea of the “flow” also permeates the exhibition: an imaginary sewing thread, tights together the inside and the outside.
nalyzing the dimensional relations between the rooms, we found out a 2.20 meters module determining the entire plan.

A GLIMPSE OF THE MODULAR STRUCTURE
Particular interest is given to the structure: itâ€™s self-supporting with a trilitic portal made of 3x3 sticks, from which all the others are generated. Three levels overlap on the top of the structure in order to give a general look of lightness and dynamism.
On top, when they intersect, led lights hang on the higher sticks. Simply moving the elements -see right page dyagram- we can totally transform the layout of the bigger room into a conference room with 20 seats.
Porta Romana rail yard URBAN REGENERATION FOR ONE OF THE MILAN HOT SPOTS
year: 2013.14 site: Porta Romana rail yard, Milan working group: Sarah Zaki, Selene Zenobi professors: Francesco Vescovi, Massimo Brignoli assistants: Astuto, Marcinkiewicz
he territory of Milan is deeply characterysed by its industrial and commercial roots. Besides all the active stations, there is a number of disused and abandond rail yards. This reperesents a huge urban wound that undermines the delicate balance of communications and relations within the community. These big empty urban voids have to be sewn up to fully live the potencial of the city. The Porta Romana rail yard is one of these voids. ď€´ď€°

here is only one working line that connects Milan to the hinterland and the rest of the yard is abandoned and cause for degradation of the entire neighbourhood and for separation of the northern and the southern part of the city.
We approached this “wound”, burying the one working rail and using the different quotes that came after as a chance to uniform the landscape through terraces and slopes.
Since the area underneath the yard lacks of services, infrastructures and residences, we carried out a redistribution of the facilities and companies in order to later intensify the residences.
The project area is thought to be entirely pedestrian; we focused on creating more common spaces like squares, or meeting points in order to encourage and ease socilization and benefit in the citizens’ everyday life.

e were asked to develop a fresher and more functional design for the entrance of the Hunnerberg juvenile detention center (Rijks Justitiële Jeugdinrichting, RJJI). This location has room for 72 young people between 12 and 24 years old and it’s the only location where girls can stay.
The new layout features a central front desk that defines a big control space shared both by controller and desk clerks. This big desk generates two different fluxes for visitors and workers to be separately controlled according to the standard procedures. New offices and meeting rooms, both for visitors and for the staff, are created. To do so, the existing patio is closed off allowing to extend the space of the first floor.
The separation of the incoming and outcoming fluxes of, respectevely, worker and visitors, was one of the principal requests, followed by a lighter palette, smarter materials, a more organized storage system and brand new custom furniture pieces. We

The proposals were: -Business Hotel (see Citizen M): the structure stays the same and the old facades are sobstituted by a glazed courtainwall.
1- Analyzing the volume. How would it change by -adding  -demolishing volumes.  Would keeping the structure and wrap it in a new layer of glass improve his value and chances of being given a new function?  2- Analyzing the kind of strategy: long or short term, major changes or smart and minor solutions. 3- Proposing new function that could match the:

hey challanged us, asking for a paper-made piece of furniture. Specifically a seat. It was supposed to be easily carried everywhere, a design choice and something new. We started analysing all the similar products that had been made sofar with the same.materials, their structure, the way they worked and the kind of paper they used. We decided to eploit the full potential of carboard when using more layers side-by-side; and to use those layers in order to compose a structure that could be used whether as a stool, whether storaged in a thin bag. To design a more appealing piece of design we decided to use this box as a backpack and to play with different colours for the laces of the final backpack.

MuzioMilano A PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION ON THE MILANESE ARCHITECT
year: 2015 site: Milan working group: Alfonso Di sabato professors: Marco Introini
he aim of the work was to tell the spacial experience of the sacred places through a series of images that give back an interpretation of the architecture that is shaping them. The logic connection among all the 24 shots and between every single photo with the previous and the subsequent, alternates two forms of narration: an emphisized perspective and geometric setting to narrate the physic space and a plausible astraction, similar to reality but more likely relatable to the architects’ way of acting. Both the squared format and the Black and White choice collaborate to a ore clear interpretation of the image. Volumes, geometry; pattern and weave are the indisputable protagonist of the composition and research of Giovanni Muzio.
