Gloria Gusmaroli

Scientific Coordinator of Landscape School

Trained in architecture between Milan, Uppsala (Sweden) and Venice, she earned a Master's degree with the thesis “Entropic Ruins. Reuse as an evolution of relationship between nature and architecture”. She alternates studies with on-field experience in Ecuador and in London with ASF-UK, experimenting with the role of ‘social facilitator’ in participated processes. She specializes in architectural reuse, intended as a practice to reinvent cities and communities. She carries out research projects on the subject, achieving the Temporary Reuse Master at the Politecnico di Milano in 2016. For years, she has been following ExSA | Ex Carcere Sant'Agata (formerly a prison), a project for socio-cultural reuse of an abandoned prison in Bergamo. She is currently working with Labsus and Fondazione Cariplo experimenting with shared administration on the outskirts of Milan.
