Visiting Graduate Student
Lia Marchi is from Department of Architecture, University of Bologna
(Italy) and has just started her second PhD year.
She is researching about the Environmental and landscape compatibility of industrial facilities, with a particular focus on Agro-food industries. The study aims at combining into a unique key the aesthetic-perceptual interferences of the settlement with the landscape, its physical impact onto the main environmental matrices, and the social effects on nearby communities.
The research goal is to contribute in defining sustainable conversion policies and measures of both existing and future industrial facilities, by providing modular and case-by-case adaptable design suggestions.
Lia will be a visiting student at CIS for three months, until the end of December.
