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.
