Artist in Residence Program 2012
I earned an architecture degree from Politecnico Di Milano in 2005 and then attended Univesitade Tecnica de Lisboa (I did my erasmus exchange there). I earned a postgraduate degree in architecture and urban culture at the Centro de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona and Universidade Politecnica de Catalunya. I was a consultant for the German Association for Technical Cooperation in Sri Lanka, where I developed a research project on post-tsunami reconstruction. I currently teach and work on a research project on Holy Urbanism. My practice reflects the spatial implication of the religious pluralism in the urban contemporary urban context.
While at Headlands
The act of designing passing through the definition of space as something specific fails its aims. In my still ongoing research about religious spaces in contempoary cities I’m trying to understand how the city could be a huge digestive system.
In fact, the infinite apparatus of informal acts that the contemporary space contain seems to work against architecture intended in the traditional sense. Cities, spaces and places transform much faster then we can predict and design.
During my stay I would like to develop a series of “imaginary public spaces” related to the concept expressed above. Large drawings and a physical model will be the result of my research.
