Stefano Romagnoli

About

Stefano Romagnoli is an architect currently studying a Master of Landscape Architecture at Harvard University, USA and is a recipient of a LafargeHolcim Research in Practice Grant (RPG). This research project will include a territorial strategy for tidal energy in Argentina, together with the development of new activities link to this renewable energy and the design of pilot projects along the Patagonian coast.

His interest in landscape architecture stems from the pursuit of finding links between architecture and renewable energies, while strongly considering ecology and territory. He is also highly interested in responses to global issues including global warming, sea level rise, energy, and pollution – particularly in projects that are able to generate multi-dimensional performance across economic, social, ecological and infrastructural aspects at a city, regional and/or national level.

His current research focus is on the development of renewable energy, regenerative agriculture, natural disasters, resilience and adaptation, all topics that deal with climate change and the health of our planet.

He studied architecture at the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (UNC), Argentina and graduated in 2016. He was a teaching fellow in architecture at UNC during and after his studies.

He has conducted studios for three years with Taller Mediterraneo and worked in several architecture firms including AFT Arquitectos.

Stefano Romagnoli was a recipient of the LafargeHolcim Awards Next Generation 1st prize for Latin America with Tomás Pont and Juan Cruz Serafini for “Territorial Figure in Argentina: Tidal energy landscape”, which was an extension of their final thesis work “Global Energy Landscapes: Evolutionary Process of Infrastructures in new territories – The Patagonia Case”. The project which studies the new role of architecture and its contribution to addressing climate change also received a Global LafargeHolcim Awards Ideas Prize in 2018 and received a LafargeHolcim Research in Practice Grant in 2018.

The project has been exhibited at the Office of the Dean, Graduate School of Design (GSD) at Harvard University; the Folium, Zurich, and in Costa Rica.
