About 

Learning has always been essential for me in choosing my way, both in education and personal life.

Drawing is and it has been for me the first tool to understand the context around me since my childhood. Along with that, reading and feeling. Not only hearing but mostly touching and watching the objects around me. The details of the slightly rough surface of the stucco of my bedroom were coming out when I was drawing on it with my wax crayons. 

Paper and models are not enough for me at the moment. I wish I can be useful, work, be part of the creation of something that will have an impact on the everyday life of the ones that will live that architecture.

I’m looking for the chance to be part of a creative team where I know there will be something that will push my vision on architecture forward.

The combination of theory and practice, a balance of knowledge and know-how, allows for a constant monitoring of the students’ learning. The year’s workshop is the place for practical experimentation and actual assessment of the learning process. The workshops and the single-subject courses contribute to a particularly rich and articulated curriculum, which promotes the development of both critical and practical skills.
