Federico (15/04/1989) is an italian registered Architect with a postgraduate degree at the Architectural Association Design Research Laboratory (DRL) in London currently working at Zaha Hadid Architects in the Computation and Design Group (CO|DE).
His research and interest is based on a parametric approach to architecture and design, with specific focus on computational methods to approach form finding strategies and complex geometrical problems. His interest includes digital fabrication with major focus on 6 axis robotic fabrication, 3D modeling techniques and physical prototyping. His latest research explores computational methods and robotic fabrication strategies to deploy architecture solutions for living in high performance cities.
In recent years received the honor and publication for his thesis work “BIOCLAD: Adaptive Biodigital Cladding System” at the Polytechnic of Turin and ArchiPrix Italia candidate. He was engaged into several projects including installations for international exhibitions like Artissima 18, the Venice Biennale at Palazzo Bembo “Traces of Centuries and Future Steps”, BIO.23 Design Biennal of Ljubjana, Make Faire Rome and Milano Design Week. He was the winner of the architectural design competition by invitation for the Delonghi Flagship Store in San Babila in Milan. He worked at Gufram as consultant at the research and development department about the development of new products from digital design to the production phase, collaborating with designers like Ross Lovergrove, Karim Rashid, Fabio Novembre and Maurizio Cattelan; he worked at the design and development of the facade Future Food District pavilion curated by Carlo Ratti Associati and MIT Senseable City for Expo 2015 in Milan, Camerana & Partners (IT) and Atkins Global in London as consultant.
He attended several international activities such as the workshop “Buildsmart2011: Parametric Design” with the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (NY), “Smart Building and Torino Smart City” with the firm Hugh Dutton Associès from Paris and the workshop “Après City 2012” at the AA in London. He has been Visiting Scholar at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute gaining recognition and a publication for his work. He partecipated in 2013 at the AA Visiting School in Rome titled “Form as (dynamic) unknown”.
