About 

 

I am an Italian Architect with different working experiences throughout Europe and Middle East.
Most recently I had the option to joint in Bahrain an International Firm (Atkins global) where I had the opportunity to be involved in few different projects from the detail design for a Science Center situated in Saudi Arabia to the preliminary and detail design stage for an Office building with a Central Data Center specially designed for an Multinational Oil Company leader in this sector.

I had also the positive circumstances to work in UK (CBA architects London office, Broadway and Malyan Reading office), where I had the chance to work on a wide range of projects, related to different architectural branches, from residential buildings passing through the educational sector ending with scientific purposes buildings (Kielder Observatory).

Moreover I have had also the favorable position and the ability to address different project phases, from the very start up to tender phase, and to interact with several technical figures involved in the construction industry.

Apart from the mentioned above I have had the occasion to set up in Naples my own studio(BOHstudio -Italy). During this period I have also improved my computer skills preparing CG virtual images and short animation for interior and industrial design. Besides that, I had the possibility to get more experience dealing with clients and becoming more confident in administrative and executive tasks.

During my University studies I had the opening to get a one-year European scholarship (Socrates-Erasmus 2003-2004) to be attended at the ETSAM (Universidad Politecnica Madrid).

In addition to the experience mentioned above, I worked for three years, during the same academic period, in an Italian Practice as a part-time assistant having many different duties.
Some of my better skills are that I am able to think in three dimensions, I am logical, practical and imaginative at same time besides being a good computer user with many CAD software.
I consider myself as an open-minded person and I am disposed to travel overseas for working reasons.
I am able to work with different people in different projects at the same time and I think of myself as an all-rounded architect that can take part in all the aspects and stages of the architectural design process.
To see some examples of my work please have a look at this youtube links with short CG animations that I have made during my computer graphic specialist degree in Architecture (ETSAM Universidad Politecnica Madrid).
