Urban Design     

Measured ‘Nolli Plan’ of Pienza

These projects are samples of my experience working on large scale projects¬†where “placemaking” is the central principle¬†of the urban organization. The¬†design of each of these projects synthesizes¬†their unique program with the local landform, climate, culture, urban patterns, and landscape. The placemaking strategy reinforces the hierarchy of the program elements, with primary¬†pathways linking open public spaces fronted by the public buildings and facilities of each project. Mixture of uses and building typologies endow the urban compositions with a natural complexity and richness.
