He graduated in 2007 cum laude at Universitá degli Studi di Firenze and subsequently earned a 2nd level university master’s degree in Public Realm Design. He set up his firm in 2008 in Lucca, Italy, focusing on education and public realm projects. Alongside his activity as Architect he delivered training on multiple aspects of Digital Design such as Design for manufacturing, 3D printing, software, and more generally digital processes for designers. In 2016 he moved to the UK and has since gathered extensive experience as an Architect and BIM specialist across all the project stages, scales and sectors spanning from residential to large scale housing, stadiums, and high-rise building. Through his career he constantly investigated the opportunities offered by digital tools and worked to integrate them into the everyday Architect’s routine. He also gathered wealth of experience on the development and delivery of complex projects, some of which designed by signature architects, through BIM processes and tools. He joined Morris and Company in 2021 as BIM Manager and since 2022 he is Head of BIM and Digital Design taking the responsibility for the company-wide digital strategy, its development and implementation.
What to expect during the event
In today’s digital ecosystems it is fundamental to have a robust, scalable and as much comprehensive as possible materials library. This topic, frequently overlooked both at a strategic and operational level, leads to poor outcomes such as: +lack of intelligence and interrogability, +overlapping and/or misalignment of processes, +duplication of information, inconsistencies. The increasingly appetite in the industry in developing digital twins alongside to the need of greater insights on our designs since day one (eg. embodied carbon) makes a compelling case for adopting a structured approach to a master materials library. Some of the expected outcomes are: +greater accuracy in our designs +an increased, early-stage, intelligence +a reduction of errors and reworking +streamlined design processes. In the presentation we will illustrate an approach to structuring, implementing and manage of a master material library that: +can be centrally managed and scaled up +enables early-design decision making +can be used across multiple platforms +allows multiple workstreams at different stages. Learning Outcomes +Planning for a scalable materials’ library +Sourcing integrate and manipulate the baseline data +Expected outcomes and benefits
