Hi, I’m Beatrice. I’m an Italian architect and a PhD student in Urban Planning, Design, and Policy at the Department of Architecture and Urban Studies of Politecnico di Milano.
Enthusiastic about innovative and transdisciplinary research, design, and teaching methods, my interests are focused on the scale of urban design, above all public space design and the role played by uncertainty in design processes. Indeed, my PhD research explores the antifragile strategies which, in our time of uncertainty, feature some contemporary design processes of public spaces in Europe. These are strategies which stay with uncertainty and also take advantage of it.
I’ve been working as an architect and urban designer on my own, as well as in partnership with other practitioners –as Ibidem– and for international architectural firms –as Operastudio (Milan and New York) and Most (Milan and Dakar).
I’m proudly a member of the board of the non-profit design organisation Architetti Senza Frontiere Italia –the Italian chapter of Architectures Sans Frontières International– where I’m engaged both on training programmes and live projects with strong attention to equitable production of the built environment.
