I’m an an architect that builds information and not houses.
I draw a lot.
In 2011 I co-founded Accurat, where I’m workinig as a design director. Accurat is an information design company based in Milan and New York city.We research and analyse data and context, and design visual tools and narratives to bring information alive, raise awareness, understanding and engagement. Our purpose is to identify the unexposed stories and patterns that live within data, and build visualisation methods, strategies and tools to accurately addressuser needs. By using an iterative design process of perpetual prototyping to develop data visualisations, interactive applications and multimedia environments we can help new stories and phenomena emerge from an increasingly complex world.
Since 2011 I’m researching as a PhD student at Politecnico di Milano, at the Design Faculty as well within Density Design Lab where we focus on the visual representation of complex social, organizational and urban phenomena. My research focuses on digital traces and sentiment mapping at the urban scale.
I studied architecture, but I never build any house, luckily.
Since last year of my graduation program I’ve always been working with information and representations of different kind of contents.
I’ve been teaching several classes at NABA design (design classes at the Master, at the B/A, at the International School) where I’ve been curating design projects as well.
I’ve been working with Interactiondesign-lab, from 2008 to 2010, where I curated different information design projects such as the design of the Plan of Services for the Municipality of Milan and its’ communication to citizens.
Moreover, I’ve been collaborating with ennezerotre studio for the creation and developement of interactive multimedia exhibitions from 2008 to 2009.
My first work experiences started with a collaboration with lucaemanueli, where I collaborated in different research projects; and as assistant in several courses and workshop at the Ferrara Architecture University as well at sealinelab.
