Caravan Residency Program: Thinking with Alexandria. Fondazione Pistoletto, Biella, IT

I am Lodovica Guarnieri, researcher and designer working at the convergence of architecture and ecology. My practice grapples with technoscience as it relates to environmental and social justice, coloniality and climate change. Through performance and writing I interrogate the technical and political production of nature as contested sites of power, as well as sites of resistance to dominant narratives.

I am part of the team of The Tidal Garden, a community seed bank based in Venice that supports the emergence of new food habits in times of rising sea level.

Currently, I am part of the Caravan Residency Program: Thinking with Alexandria, funded by the European Union.

In the past, I have worked on exhibitions and performances at TBA21 Academy, V-A-C Foundation,Lisbon Architecture Triennale, Bureau Europa, Stroom Den Haag, Manifesta 12 and Van Abbemuseum among others and I was part of the research projects Non-Extractive Architecture and  Hostile Environment(s).

I hold an MA with distinction from the Centre for Research Architecture, Goldsmiths University of London; an MDes in Social Design from Design Academy Eindhoven, The Netherlands; and a BA cum laude from Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti, Milan, Italy.
