My research project deals with the questions deriving from the transformation of buildings and the metamorphosis of the space through the new housing functions. I use the human senses to analyze the spatial qualities and meanings of these spaces, mapping my design research using different tools such as illumination and interviewing different people who act as narrators, zooming in the context and location of the building, etc.
In order to understand and find my personal connections with the architecture of the building, my strategy as an interior architect is to prepare site-specific projects within the abandoned buildings, using the spaces they contain as a lab. The exhibitions I create are my spatial snapshots of the present moment, focused on awakening spatial emotions and seeking different values. In art and science creativity is the intersection and I am creating different new atmosphere.
