GIANMARIA QUARTA ARCHITECTURE & URBAN DESIGN CV + PORTFOLIO

2005-2015


GIANMARIA QUARTA / resume I am an architectural and urban designer specialized in concept design and development. My focus of interest is the relation between building, technology and socio-cultural environments, in particular the integration of sustainable systems into broader, process-oriented design strategies. I believe learning is a never-ending process, therefore my professional commitment to design is strictly interlaced with my interest in science, art, and all points of contact between the two.

Traveling is a major source of inspiration for me, and having had the opportunity of living in many inspiring cities in the past ten years (Turin, Paris, Milan, Rotterdam, Berlin, Shanghai) has given me the invaluable privilege of expanding my cultural horizon through direct experience. Profession-wise, I’m serious and dedicated. I was highly regarded throughout my carreer for my team-playing skills both as an effective group member and as a responsible decision-taker when the situation arises.
