The work of Architect Giulia de Appolonia is exemplary of the most current expressions of the ever-evolving image of the Italian urban landscape, and of its future aspirations.

Join us for the presentation of a selection of de Appolonia’s work, presented by their creator.

Giulia de Appolonia has almost 30 years of activity with different roles within dissimilar professional fields of architecture.The 13 years in Portugal have contributed to her personal growth from trainee to project manager and subsequently to an independent and signatory designer. In 2000, she founded her first professional studio in Lisbon, succeeding in the 5 years of activity in Portugal to achieve first place in the competition for an important public work - The Science Museum of Bragança.In 2005, back in Italy, she won an important design competition for the congress center of Brescia Zoo-prophylactic Institute and in 2008, she started a joint venture with 3 other professionals, in Brescia (ABDAsrl) to add creative and design energies and access the project market on a larger scale.Since 2014, due to the market recession, she has taken the path of freelance again, this time orienting her activity towards a very specific area of medium-sized public works. Since that time, despite the difficulties of the market, she built a growing reality obtaining various public works assignments through tenders for design and construction management. In the meanwhile she maintained a connection to the academic world both as TEACHING ASSISTANT IN THE COURSE OF “ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN IN HISTORICAL CONTEXT STUDIO” WITH EDUARDO SOUTO DE MOURA AND CARRILHO DA GRAÇA in the Politecnico di Milano/Mantova and as an invited lecturer at various universities and events.
