- ConnectA publication looking into how humans connect; through patterns, marks, language and sometimes the lack of. Depending on upbringing, culture and education can determine how a person uses or interprets symbols to connect with the community. Connecting through a unique code of marks and shapes that both parties are aware of and can decipher. I looked into the relationship between known and unknown language, how it can be bridged and if connection can be present with no language at all. This inv
- Notice MoreA research-based self initiated project revolving around the idea of becoming more aware of routine in order to experience more and enrich day-to-day life. Commuting by bike for 30 mins each day bought the realisation on how easy it can be to click into ‘autopilot‘ and not notice our surroundings or even the route taken. We decided to tackle this subject with a gentle approach to encourage people to take a moment, breathe and engage in a practical activity, while leaving the baggage 'of ‘mindful

Gold at European Design AwardsEuropean Design Award10 Viaggi nell’Architettura Italiana” presents the results of the 2019–20 photographic campaign commissioned by the Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity of Ministry of Culture, and constitutes the second chapter of “Atlante Architettura Italiana”, an attempt to document post-1945 Italian architecture through the lenses of ten emerging landscape and architecture photographers. The exhibition design transforms the entire volume of Sala Centrale at Triennale Milano into an interactive cartographic space. An elevated floor of 400 printed tiles outlines an abstracted topography of Italy, revealing the locations of the architecture documented by the campaign. Each photographic print floats above the map: detached from the walls and supported by slender frames, the images become part of a spatial, three-dimensional archive, replicating and amplifying the photographers’ itineraries across the country. The exhibition design, allowing for multiple paths through the work of the authors, invites visitors to interact with the images while walking, weaving, and stepping into the installation. The architecture and the landscapes are presented in a seemingly endless array of juxtapositions, where the authors’ individual perspectives are brought together in a collective assembly.
