â€œIt that generally calls beautiful is not any more than a sublimation than the realities of the life, and this way he was like our forbears, bound to reside, they wanted it or not, in dark housings, they discovered one day the beautiful thing in the bosom of the shade in the bosom of the shade and were not late in using the shade to obtain aesthetic effectsâ€?.

I am person passionate about architecture in all its variants and scales. As a future architect I would like to be able to cure the smallest details of the project, always trying to reach sensibile solutions with constructive realism. Simple composition and rational rhythm are crucial in my way of creating constructed space. I am a student in constant pursuit of the creation of an architectural approach that unifies in each project the sustainability, the cultura heritage of the place and the elegance of the forms.

· Arco · “The conditions for building the city lie in the fundamental principle of the production of the quality of living, comfort situations and, at the same time, the densification of the territory. Living a space refers to the pleasure and freedom to occupy it. Conceiving architecture and the city starting from the idea of living, obliges us to think and build space, focusing on use. In this way, the city is interpreted as a succession of situations and mobility. Any thought on densification must be bound to this strategy of relationship, ease and continuity applied to the quality of an interior space - a common and a public strengthened by freedom, porosity and generosity. Densification means increasing space, without suppressing individual space: it means equipping residences with capacity and allowing people to live countless situations, ordinary and extraordinary.” Lacaton and Vassal
The project develops in the neighborhood called Borgata Frassati in Torino (Italy). It is a project of urban regeneration of a plot located in the street Via Pietro Cossa, with eight existing buildings of housing. The new residences are located on the two upper floors of the longitudinal buildings.The buildings with three stairwells there will be 10 apartmens, while in the buildings of two stairwells there will be 7. On the ground floor are located the new community spaces: library, gymnasium and children’s playroom. In addition, thanks to the commercial axis under the residences, it is possible to add private garden spaces to existing residences on the ground floor. The structure of the new residences has been designed with the new construction system of XLAM, giving greater lightness to the structure and not overloading the existing part.

Âˇ Social housing Âˇ The project develops in the neighborhood called Aurora in Torinoâ€™s city (Italy). It consists of a project of urban regeneration of a plot located in the street Cinia, with a preexistence in which has done an intervention of functional reorganization to the boarder of the same one providing it with new life.
of IT programs as for example: Velux and Echo6, allowing to study in depth the choice of constructive materials and more or less convenience of the same ones. Finally, the apartments and common spaces of the residence for the third age have been thought for the interrelationship of the residents. Thus, the apartments possess several private rooms connected across the common space of the kitchen and the lounge. In addition they possess diverse common rooms in which there is claimed that activities are realized as the painting and the reading. In the terrace of the last floor there are gardens in the greenhouse and in exterior, being able to cultivate plants that need diverse temperatures.
The view point
This first building will be a sanitary existential residence with common spaces (gymnasium for the patients, dining rooms, common rooms ...) and deprived. In the rest of the plot there develop other two interventions of new construction: a residence for the third age and a sanitary center communicated across a green public space that allows to understand all the buildings of the plot as a set. Both buildings of new construction have been projected following a concept of balance and sustainability with the environment thanks to the employment

· The library · The project is realized typical plot of the Ensanche of Valencia, in Cánovas’s neighborhood. This neighborhood is characterized by his particular rectangular apples by the vertexes in diagonal. The library together with the residence they place in the perimeter of one of these apples, allowing to continue with this urban system of the neighborhood. The library possesses two accesses: in the south front, across which it allows to the user to accede directly to the park of the interior of the apple, and other one, placed in the vertex, one accedes one to the interior of the library. This account with diverse services: bar, classroom I study, space for the infantile reading, classroom of computers, historical files etc.
The residence counts 12 apartments and three tipologías residential diverse developed in four floors. In ground floor four apartments with two rooms, in pirmera plants four apartments with three rooms and finally, 4 duplexes in third and fourth plant with four rooms. The constructive system used in the library has been the gray concrete with windows of dark gray carpentry. Nevertheless, in the residence the red brick has been used.

Âˇ The capsule Âˇ This project starts from the adaptation of the cell created by the architect Moshe Safdie into his project in Puerto Rico. In it has been emulated his idea of creating a set that, through cells aggregation, was able to fulfill the requests of the housings in el Saler. From the beginning the solution thought to be adopted consisted on an heterogeneous distribution, even if following an order patron, in order to allow the disposition of the cells arround the nucleous buildigs, that would become the buildings for the community services. The notable volume of the capsules defined the request of a complete performance comprising several semi-levels, treated as an urbanistic configuration that allows the entrance to the housings, parking and the several common spaces, both in and outdoors.
The aforementioned capsule superposition defined the creation of three lenghtwise buildings, sharing the housings genealogy, aimed at enclosing few workspaces, a kindergaden and a library. Thanks to the cell nature six different types of housings emerged. The littlest, good for single-person use, accounts for an extension of 30m2, in which the inclined planes allow both to fit together the wet areas (bathroom and kitchen) and opening windows aimed at offering natural ventilation. The other capsules account for 60 and 90m2. The furniture of all of the capsules is composed by multi-purpose flexible elements.

Âˇ The view point Âˇ The view-point is a project based in the riverside of the Albufera (Valencia), located in a small plot hidden between some reeds, separated by a road fence. The basic idea is to immerse the spectator in the landscape from the horizontality that characterizes the Albufera. But, how to reach this? This idea might not have been concieved different than a longitudinal element placed in one of its sides, a whole path that linked the land to the water. Accordingly, the scope of the intervention would be diluted through the reeds and extended thanks to the view-point.
To reach a singular space, it was requested to clearly define the boundaries between the road and the plot, and given that in the surroundings some turistic areas are found, it was proposed a mix-track (both for pedestrians and cyclists) that reached the viewpoint, through ramps dispositon forming the green path.
The view point
At this given point, conscious that the project would fulfill the whole schedule through a single blow, the limits treatment (plot-riverside, road-plot, plot-parking) were broached from a landscape point of view, rather than an architectonic one.
Thanks to using the same pavement, the exterior space unifies the parking area with the pedestrian zone, that leads to the lake by means of some vast platforms. The construction and structural system arise from a series of modular elements that settle the layout creating several different spaces.

Âˇ XVI Âˇ For this reason, for a sacrality that is made of essential gestures such as individual and collective prayers, for a way of perceiving the presence of divinity in natural elements, for a religion which has its roots in oral transmission of its beliefs, the role of architecture is to transform spirituality into substance.
Designing a sacred architecture into the context of an always tranforming informal urbanization, as the Tanaf, means on one hand receiving collecting all of the inputs and needs of a culturally and religiously strong embedded comunity and on the other side allowing the process of appropriation by inhabitants in which any single wall and stone is considered as sacred. This process modifies and adapts to the way people use it. A space born with a sacred vocation will not be sacred as long as people who experience it will not consider it as sacred. Architectural choices strongly shape and influence this identitary process made of appropriation and comunitary managing of the space.
Lights, lightness and materiality become the touchable connection between the sacred and profane.Four dinstinct volumes where spirituality research is phisically represented by lights paths through massive walls into an personal and closed space. All of the entrances are shaded by a lightweight panel in order to allow the view outside and at the same time to create an intimate space to reach spirituality. At last, the central core of our deisgned space, a place where is possible to pray collectively, and where oral tradition can be sang to new generations. An architecture made of in-place materials, as wood and clay, of simple processes for workforce which has not been formed from the technological point of view, allows to involve population into the creation of the architectural artifact, promoting the natural process of appropriaton of the place.

Âˇ Podium Âˇ As a linen is the element base where the pictorial work of a painter materializes, or a plane is the support where one begins to raise a project of architecture, Podium is born of the idea of emphasizing the element from which it takes forms the culinary art, the horizontal plane. The horizontal plane, as its proportions, they are key elements in order that the creative art of the kitchen could develop successfully; from the production and preparation of the plate up to its degustation for the retainer. For it, Podium is based on two fundamental ingredients: the concept and its materialization. To materialize this concept as a space of exterior kitchen, he competes for the surface of an architectural element as the horizontal looked surface: the Podium. With this concept, there develop modules that are functionally independent between them and that allow different configurations choice of the client, but the resultant image always returns to compose the same leitmotiv: that of a podium, a stony longitudinal and horizontal volume that underlines the landscape or that serves as milestone in courts and gardens, as if always it had been forming a part there of the landscape.

“At a given moment, most of kids feel the desire of building some sort of refuge. It may be a true digged cave or a rough hovel made out from wooden planks. Nevertheless, it is usually no more than a secret spot hidden in the bushes, or a tent fabricated with a couple of chairs and a carpet. That “cave game” can have uncountable variations, but they all share the fact of defining a closed private space for the children”. Steen Eiler Rasmussen The project responds to the need of creating this refuge, this spaceframe in which the kid becomes the participant agent of whatever taking place in it, including everything that does not happen, as a mere product of their imagination. On a rigid base there are formed walls, supported by cardboard “trunks”. The designed space reaches its plenitude by setting holes in the structure, that provide permeability, dynamism and freedom.
