Turin, IT



Luigi Cristian Sarais has been attracted to the Art World since he was a child. His studies in architecture began in Art High School at the Liceo Artistico Renato Cottini of Turin. In 2009, he completed his undergraduate degree at the Politecnico of Turin, Second School of Architecture. In 2009-2010 he studied as an Erasmus student at the High Technical School of Architecture of La Coruña, Spain. In 2011, he completed his Masters degree at the Politecnico of Turin, Second School of Architecture.
Whilst studying he interned firstly at “Studio De Ferrari Architetti” in Turin (2006) where he developed his architectural skills working in a team of architects.  He then went on to “Studio Rinaldis”, Nichelino, Turin (2009). Sarais participated in several architectural competitions; in 2009, he gained the first prize for the “Contratto di fiume del Torrente Sangone, Masterplan del Piano d’Azione”. His interests are in architectural design, landscaping and interior design.
His ability to work individually and in a team most definitely set him apart along with his strong graphic communication skills, positive attitude and self motivation. Travelling and discovering new cultures enhances the already cosmopolitan skills and techniques acquired by Luigi Cristian Sarais during his studies.

“Architecture could not be just something material, it is an emotion that come out from inside”.

"I consider myself to be a keen architect, with an outgoing personality, an enthusiastic and positive attitude to work, who pays a lot of attention to detail".

”Contratto di fiume del Torrente Sangone, Masterplan del Piano d’Azione”, 1st Place

La seconda edizione del progetto IDRA ha visto il coinvolgimento degli studenti universitari in un Concorso di progettazione mirato alla realizzazione di un Masterplan del Piano d'Azione del Contratto di Fiume del Bacino del Torrente Sangone. Il Masterplan costituisce uno strumento di comunicazione e divulgazione delle azioni del Piano attraverso la definizione della forma e dei contenuti della trasformazione dell'ambito territoriale, dalla morfologia all'architettura.
Il percorso partecipato così avviato, il carattere multidisciplinare dato alla progettazione, la collaborazione e il tutoraggio tra docenti universitari e studenti coinvolti, rappresentano un elemento qualificante del progetto IDRA.
Gli studenti, supportati nella progettazione attraverso l'organizzazione di un Workshop e di successivi incontri di aggiornamento, hanno avuto modo di confrontarsi in modo diretto con i referenti tecnici e politici del territorio, avviando un lavoro efficace e concreto di progettazione multidisciplinare.
I Masterplan degli studenti, consegnati il 1 giugno 2009 e valutati da una Commissione l'11 giugno 2009, hanno dimostrato il valore della sperimentazione del lavoro integrato e multidisciplinare, sia in termini di contenuti che di comunicazione. Inoltre, la complementarietà dei contenuti tematici presentati (fruizione, riqualificazione, parco agrario, ingegneria naturalistica) e la possibilità di integrare territorialmente le proposte progettuali avanzate, potrebbe portare all'elaborazione di un unico Masterplan per l'intera area del bacino del Sangone.
