Gianpiero is an architect, interior designer, and builder. Leading all activities at Audax, Gianpiero has a Master of Architecture from Harvard University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from the University of California at Berkeley. He also studied at the Venice Institute of Architecture in Italy.
His current work at Audax explores the relationship between traditional design principles and the modern aesthetic. This approach, which he has coined as Human Architecture, aims to bring the tactile and human-scaled elements that were lost during the modern period back into contemporary design. Gianpiero is passionate about the history of architecture and interiors and uses this knowledge in each project.
Prior to founding Audax, Gianpiero worked as a designer and architect responsible for the design of numerous large-scale, mixed-use developments throughout North America. Gianpiero is an active speaker in the design community. He was a lecturer at the University of Toronto’s Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design, and sat on their faculty council as the representative from the Ontario Association of Architects. With several award-winning multi-unit and urban infill projects, Gianpiero is regularly invited to speak at industry conferences and panels about city building.
