Alessio Battistella

Enel Foundation Italian Fellow in Architecture, Urban Design, and Landscape Architecture
September 6–December 27, 2021
Architect, ARCò – Architettura e Cooperazione, Milan
Project title
The Sustainable Lightness of the Limit
Project description

The theoretical framework within which my research develops is “Appropriate Technologies,” that is to say, those technologies that respond effectively in terms of implementation and maintenance to the specific cultural, social, economic, and technological contexts in which they are applied. I will use my time at the Academy to frame a monographic study of my applied work, considering the ethical implications of a resilient, ecological, and fundamentally local architecture.
