About

Born and raised in Milano, Italy, Master Degree in Architecture, Politecnico di Milano. Research fellow at ABC Department/GIcarus Lab since 2013 as an expert in Building Information Model (BIM), Reverse Engineering applied in Building, Cultural Heritage, Restoration and Infrastructure. In these years he had the opportunity to generate various H-BIMs and VR projects for ABC Department such as Basilica of Collemaggio in Aquila, Masegra Castle in Sondrio and Azzone Visconti bridge in Lecco. In 2015 has the opportunity to implement his research thanks to the PhD Scholarships in 'Inclusive Building Information Modelling for Design and Asset Management'. In 2016 he won a PhD internship at the Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS) Lab at Carleton University, Ottawa Ontario (Canada) in affiliation with the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism. This internship is a component of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) funded New Paradigm / New Tools for Architectural Heritage in Canada training program, of which the Politecnico di Milano is a partner. NP/NT and the CIMS Lab supports his research in the development and implementation of Advanced Modelling Technique (AMT) for built heritage, applied at the largest BIM in the world: the parametric models of the west and centre blocks, Parliament Hill, Ottawa, Canada. The digital models are constructed with metric data captured from terrestrial laser scanning and photogrammetry. It will be adopted by the prime consultants (architects and engineers) as the basis for design studies, project management, and integrated project delivery. During the period he has been exposed to different projects of the research centre, becoming an agent for the mobilisation of new knowledge and new modes of interdisciplinary collaboration that will benefit academia and the architecture, engineering, construction, and operations (AECO) community as a whole. In the same year has had the opportunity to work in Autodesk Research Toronto, following his research on the 'Advanced Generative Techniques applied to Building Information Modelling Project'. This Fellowship Agreement is by and among Autodesk Canada Co. and Carleton University. Since the academic year 2013, he was tutor of the courses: ‘Laboratory of Architectural Design – Urban and Environmental Survey’, ‘Architectural Preservation Studio’, ‘Laboratory of Architectural Restoration’, ‘Preventive Programmed Conservation for the enhancement of cultural heritage’ and ‘Surveying and 3D Modelling for Cultural Heritage’ at the Politecnico di Milano.
