CRISTINA PALLINI (Principal investigator)

Cristina Pallini is Associate Professor in Architectural and Urban Composition (ICAR 14). She is Associate professor at the School of Architecture, Politecnico di Milano, where she teaches a final-year design studio, while also working as a practicing architect.

She also holds a Ph.D. in Architectural Composition from the University of Venice IUAV (2001). City reconstruction in Eastern Mediterranean port cities (particularly Alexandria, Thessaloniki and Izmir) has been her main field of research since 1995.

She aims at uncovering the tools for projects of radical intervention where catastrophic events created not only the urgency to rebuild a physical environment, but also the need to devise a strategy able to re-establish socio-economic and cultural life. Her research has been supported by scholarships from the Italian Research Council, the Greek Scholarship Foundation, the Greek Ministry of Education, the Aga Khan Program at MIT, and the Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation.
