There is no space for obvious solutions; shaping new places requires fantasy, an ability to watch with new eyes, think differently, and envisage the future.”

Travelling in other countries or walking down the streets of my own city, I have always asked myself the same questions: why are some places successful and others not? What can we do better? I studied architecture to help me contribute to the answer, driven by the aspiration to shape better places for people and to positively guide the process of urban changes.

During my early career, working on projects of different scales and contexts, I learned to develop a site specific approach, recognising the peculiarities of each space and the importance of a tailored/ad hoc design response. At Studio Egret West, I am refining my experience, adding to my rigorous approach the value of novelty. There is no space for obvious solutions; shaping new places requires fantasy, an ability to watch with new eyes, think differently, and envisage the future.

There is an unveiled potential in every place: an undiscovered/unconscious community in each neighbourhood, a form of beauty in every unloved and forgotten corner of our cities. As an urban designer, my challenge is to stitch everything together and reveal the new beauty.
