S.M. Shafaiet Mahmud

S.M. Shafaiet Mahmud has a passion for innovative ideas, exploring the boundaries of visual art and architecture. He completed his Bachelor of Architecture from American International University Bangladesh (AIUB) in 2017. His B.Arch thesis project, titled “Urban Remediation: Turning Landfill Site into Public Park,” sought to develop an existing landfill into a community urban park, creating a model for turning “negative” zones into vibrant public places. The project questioned the conventional practice of waste management, which has a great impact on the infrastructure of any city. Shafaiet’s proposal included a ward-based waste-processing facility prototype that would recycle waste at the landfill. His proposal was awarded the year’s best thesis and published in Context BD, a reputed online architecture platform.

Shafaiet has worked as an intern architect at Volumezero Architects. In 2018, he was awarded the design competition “Inhabiting Nature,” organized by Aditya College of Architecture (ACA), Mumbai, India. He attended the Institute of Architects Bangladesh architecture jamboree in 2016. His expertise is in complex geometry and coding in Rhinoceros and Grasshopper. He participated in EVOLO skyscraper design competition in 2015 and attended a workshop arranged by Habitat for Humanity Bangladesh called “Safe Sanitation 2014.” In this workshop, he was awarded 2nd prize for his “Community Toilet Design.”

At Ci+AU, he is currently working on the design of eight BRAC regional offices and a prototype pavilion for Aarong Earth, the display and sale space for Aarong’s herbal products. He is an associate member of the Institute of Architects Bangladesh.

Davide Marchetti

Davide Marchetti received his Master’s in Architecture from the University of Rome La Sapienza in 2001 and joined the Massimiliano Fuksas Office in Rome upon graduation. The following year he became a member of the Italian Architects Registry, Chapter of Rome. In 2004, he began his own practice, specializing in architecture, urban planning and interior design. The office is driven by a consistent philosophical approach, not a predetermined style. It explores and develops new ways of thinking about architecture and the surrounding contextual environment in order to create models for change and innovation. Projects are approached with a comprehensive emphasis on environmental themes, materiality and cultural context. As a result, the studio aims to create specifically designed and detailed buildings that are deeply contextual with equal attention to function. High quality design results from the continuity of rigorous process and intensive dialogue with the client, consultants, contractors and inhabitants.Davide Marchetti has taught at Cornell University continuously from 2011, as a Visiting Critic in advanced design studios. He has been several times an invited critic at Pratt Institute, Syracuse University, Catholic University, University of Miami as well as at University of Rome La Sapienza and University of Pisa School of Engineering. He believes that the education of an architect manifests through a process; both the understanding and the application of the curriculum and studio discipline, as well as in the personal exploration of influences from multiple environments. These come from many sources, such as art and literature, science and medicine, history and economy. These conditions then consequently influence the scope of multidisciplinary practice that now permeates contemporary architecture. He is interested in fostering this environment, and adeptly responding to each students individual strengths, passions, and interests.
