Professor Manfredo Manfredini
University of Auckland, New Zealand
Manfredo studied architecture and urban design in Milan and Berlin. He has been engaged in individual and group research over a wide range of topics in architectural theory and criticism, as well as in design at architectural and urban scales. Since his graduation from the Milan Technical University, Manfredo has consistently been involved in fundamental and applied research projects, both locally and internationally. After teaching architecture and urban design in Italy, Germany and China, since 2010 he has been teaching architecture and urban design at the University of Auckland. His current research interests address post-urban spatialization forms and correlated design aspects, particularly focusing on valorisation, re-qualification and redevelopment of architectural and urban heritage; affordable and special housing; and education in architecture. Each of these areas has been successfully developed in collaboration with international and multi-disciplinary teams, as proven by the track record of consistent publications, successful grants (national and international) and awards (first price Biennale di Venezia, Sironi Group).
