“Enrico is deeply committed to making architecture accessible to all. Using his interests in visual communication and research, alongside his presentation skills and attention to detail, he is able to effectively communicate architectural and educational concepts of varying complexity to a variety of stakeholders that are part of the architectural design process.”
Enrico is an Italian architectural designer and graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design’s Architecture Department (Barch/BFA). Enrico is deeply interested in principles of participatory planning and co-design strategies, and has incorporated these design principles in his practice during his studies. Interested in the intersection between architectural design and community building, his design practice aims to involve all constituents of design projects from conceptual ideation to final development.
His studies at RISD culminated in a thesis titled ‘Tutti a Scuola! A Participatory Reworking of the Locus of Italian Public Education.” In his thesis, Enrico engaged with elementary school students to propose an agile, resilient and child-centered vision for a new collective imaginary for the world of Italian public education.
Enrico formerly collaborated with Milanese participatory planning organization ABCittà via the RISD Maharam STEAM Fellowship in Applied Art and Design, and also served as a Design Intern with Fielding International and VS America during 2020, aiding the development of the award-winning “Sustaining Student Learning and Success: a Holistic COVID-19 Response Strategy.”
In his spare time, Enrico enjoys taking care of his many houseplants, browsing bookstores, and exploring the coast of Rhode Island.
