I presented my masters degree thesis on the theme of architectural design in public spaces entitled Making Public Space Possible The role of Communities and Collectifs in Urban Transformation on July 23rd, 2014 at the Politecnico di Milano. I focused on certain forms of temporary reusable installments, requiring the involvement of the local population. I elaborated my research through the study of an informal French movement, whose protagonists gather in groups and associations they call collectifs consisting mainly of young architects. They come together to create a space called the chantier ouvert (the open work site), which brings together the themes of self-building and the participation of local residents. The approach favoured by the collectifs has allowed the movement to come up with some very innovative elements, feeding the contemporary debate on the issue of public spaces and sometimes calling into question some of the cornerstones of the traditional methods of architecture.

MASTER THESIS / themes table
7I felt that the only reasonable way to investigate the characteristics of a possible public space was that of research on the concrete ground of reality under consideration. Much of the material that I used to write the chapter IV, where I describe the architects collectif movement, was collected not only through library and internet research, but also thanks to a long period of field research. Over the last academic year I have traveled extensively, particularly in France, interviewing, working and exchanging ideas with many activists and planners, the protagonists of this movement.
The fact that my research was based on first-hand experiences makes it highly valuable from a methodological point of view, as I was able to gain a deeper knowledge and ensure that the data I collected was strongly reliable. One must take into consideration that I was studying a young movement therefore there is currently no up-to-date existing literature on this subject.
This experience not only led to a written text on the subject, but you can also discover pictures and videos in the prezi presentation that I created.

participation with the collectif ETC
Founder of the studio Construire and curator of the French pavilion in the 2006 Venice Biennale. He is considered to be the initiator of the collectifs movement.
During the month of April 2014, I attended and filmed the development of a Chantier ouvert (open work site) aimed at constructing a dance floor under the Pont de la Concorde in Paris.

1. INTERNSHIP / Pyramidal Screen
The project originates from the idea of transforming a light beam, emanating from a video projector, into a voluminous form in order to create an art installation. This concept had already been tested in an experimental stage prior to my involvement in the project. This stage involved placing a succession of transparent screens in front of a projector, at a distance of around 30 cm from each other, which were intercepted by images of varying sizes which increased proportionally the further away the screens were placed from the source. The combination of these different images generated an interesting effect, both when observed from a side-on view of the pyramid of screens, and also when facing the pyramid. Here are the images of the preliminary experiments.
The row of screens and the projector thus formed a unit. I took part in this project during the conceptual phase, which involved figuring out how to combine multiple pyramid units in order to make the most of the aesthetic and sculptural potential of this volumetric project and turn it into an installation that could be introduced into public spaces.In the following diagrams you can see the final structure formed by the sculpture: three pyramids arranged in a triangular formation that create an interesting and complex spatial effect for a sculpture that one can only experience fully by walking 360 around it.
You are in Chicago in 1912. You are about to witness an inexplicable wrestling match between two men and observe the downfall of a family that has moved from
the prairies to the jungle of the big city. Dont worry your heads about the motives for the fight, concentrate on the stakes. Judge impartially the technique of the contenders,
and keep your eyes fixed on the finish.
