about | cv
Hi! I’m Beatrice Galimberti. 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.
Enthusiast 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 not only ‘stay with’ uncertainty but 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 also a trustee of the NGO Architetti Senza Frontiere Italia –the Italian chapter of Architectures Sans Frontières International– where I’m engaged both on training programmes and live projects –international and local cooperation– with strong attention to equitable production of the built environment.
