Göteborg Plads 11 4th, Copenhagen, Denmark
I'm Andrea, 33 years old, young architect actually based and working in Copenhagen. I borned and raised up in Italy, in the north area. studied Architecture at IUAV in Venice and after graduation i made two important experiences abroad; the first one in Netherlands in one architectural firm and the second one in Croatia thanks to a european schoolarship. In both cases i worked as a conceptual architect, working on different projects at different scales.

Extreme Cities


How climate change will affect the future of urban space and architecture
The current generation of architects and urban planners can be defined the “climate change generation”; nowadays they are call to fight many different battles together, economic, social, political, but the most important is climate change.

Architecture is one of the key drivers of climate change. Between construction and the energy required to keep buildings up and running, the industry is responsible for nearly half of the carbon emissions in the atmosphere. For the first time in our history, humans are influencing the climate of the planet. The air temperature in one century rised up about 1,2°C with all the relative consequences as the sea level rise or the rising up of the oceans' water temperature. This apparently is not a big problem for us, but for many ecosystem means the extinction, with the consequently influence on the global food chain where humans are one ring.

If we continue in this way (business as usual way) the predicted scenario for the end of this century will see for example the rise of the sea level around 1 meter, with all the relatives consequences for example on the urban areas along the coastal zones.



The North-East area of italy is one of the most vulnerable coastal zones in the world. With 1 meter of sea level rise many areas would be flood. Which uurban sustainable development is it possible?

One possible scenario is the creation of urban filaments along the coastal zones with high density developments

sustainable mobility and clean energy production must be part of the new plannings in one scenario free carbon emission

italian historical city centres would become resilient by green areas and wetlands along the borders to prevent and absorb extreme weather events

in 2010 the north-east area of Italy was hit by an extreme weather event...the result was the flood of vast part of the suburbs territories with strong economic and social problems.
