This activity is included in the cultural interests of the project research. To the first works carried out in some seminars and workshops of design and since 80s in the roman offices of Aymonino, Panella, Toccafondi, it come up beside the experimentation with other collaborators or individual that always pursues a line of research on the relationship between architecture and urban text. This research was aimed at identifying the architectural autonomy and heteronomyto interpret in the most appropriate way the aesthetic components and values of the sites in a renewed relationship between architecture and the city.

Since the mid-eighties, the design activity takes place essentially with responsibility of the designer, sometimes compared to the universe of building production (Istituto Tecnico Archimede in Modica, Sicily and some houses in the same region).

Exchange with Raffaele Panella is collected in numerous projects competitions held together. Through this collaboration I have acquired the knowledge that in the design field must not stop with an assumption, it is necessary to go further in the understanding of the settlement systems through the rigorous study of the morphologies of the sites.

The most recent competitions , carried out largely with Alessandra Capuano (Capuano & Carpenzano associated URBANLAB), mark a moment of reflection on how architecture behaves respect to the need to give meaning and shape to the spaces and landscapes of contemporary life. I ran the work of the preliminary architectural design and detailed design of the Roman intermodal and logistics centre of Fiumicino.

As well as urban design research focused mainly on the contemporary condition of the city, I have undertaken since 2001 more complex trajectories and original interweaving between creative processes and new technologies in the context of ALTROEQUIPE, where I carried out a search based on the interaction between the architecture and technology of motion capture and motion graphics.

I am currently coordinating the design lab in DiAP.
