Alessandro works at STEAMhouse one day a week, coordinating industry links and live projects between the University’s academic departments.
He contributes to the ongoing research around the innovation our members undergo by documenting case studies to expand our understanding of the STEAM approach. He specialises in designs for creative workspaces and advises STEAMhouse in implementing its transition to Phase 2 at the Belmont Works.
Architecturally trained, he is a Senior Lecturer at the Birmingham School of Architecture & Design and is course director for the MArch Architecture. Alessandro set up the Co\\aborative Lab.oratory (Co.Lab) – a design & research initiative within the school to engage staff, students and industry in collective transdisciplinary projects across the city.
Alongside working within the architectural discipline, he has worked as an artist and designer with a portfolio of site-specific installations, designs for gallery spaces like BOM and Centrala, and events across a number of arts organisations in the region.
Alessandro works with members to support creative ideas or practical advice on immersive environments, architectural structures and product development, whilst also providing detailed knowledge on research methods for project planning.
