Via conte fazio 4, Pisa, Italy
I come from Pisa where I now work as a freelence and where I also studied Bulding engineering and Architecture graduating two years ago: I’m a proud co-founder of the cultural association I founded with my collegues, 120g, where we explore the relationships between architecture, visual arts and engineering. I fed my curiosity in the past years roaming abroad for study and work purposes firstly in Lisbon (Instituto Superior Tecnico), then in Granada (Elisa Valero) and Groningen (KAW Architecten).

Atmospheres as a daily Practice


Or are we going to consider digital world more engaging than the real one?

Raising awareness about the felt body in the design of spaces to improve our daily life

  • Systemic changes

Considering visual imaginations and the aesthetic categories of atmospheres as central in architectural design can be decisive to allow an existence rooted in her present and reality. This tools are detached from technological progress, free and purely creative: that’s why they are useful on a large scale in our globalized world.
In a time dominated by technocracy and digital revolution the humankind is constantly living in the apparent worlds of mediality, taking the risk of considering that one more engaging than the real one. At the same time theory and critic of architecture are striving to evolve from phenomenological or deconstructivist positions which are too much related with verbal thinking.
Starting from the philosophical work of Gernot Bohme and the body of research in psychology and philosophy around human visuality I want to raise a renewed interest around visual imagination and atmospheres, both in practices and theoretical works.
