Biography

Marco Trisciuoglio (1966), is an architect and an urban designer, who studies the idea of city as a collective architecture and as a collective construction (of buildings, spaces and symbols) within the context of the Italian cultural background. He also received an education as cultural anthropologist and he is expert in the history of mentalities and ideas (the idea of landscape, memory and modernity in architecture, and the idea of cultural heritage). After Classical Studies, in 1992 Marco Trisciuoglio achieved his Master in Architecture with a design thesis between Architectural Design and Archaeological Methods. In 1997 he got a PhD in Methodology of Architectural Design at the University of Genova. He is Full Professor in ARCHITECTURAL AND URBAN at Politecnico di Torino, Department of Architecture and Design. He is Head of the PhD Program ARCHITECTURE. HISTORY AND PROJECT at Politecnico di Torino and member of the Board of ScuDo (the PhD School at Politecnico di Torino). He is Visiting Professor in some Chinese universities and from 2015 and Guest Professor (since 2018) at the School of Architecture in SOUTHEAST UNIVERSITY NANJING, where he is also Professor at the Architecture Internationalization Demonstration School directed by David Leatherbarrow (Pennsylvania University). At Politecnico di Torino he is currently teaching Architecture and Urban economics (Master of science program Architecture Construction City), Design’s Theories at in the Bachelor program Architettura, Theory and Culture of Landscape Design in the Interuniversity Master of science program Green Areas and Landscape design, Urban Morphology at the PhD School. He spent last 10 years in studying the morphology of human settlements in urban and rural China. He is actually leading, as Co-Director, the Joint Research Unit TRANSITIONAL MORPHOLOGIES, established in June 2018 between Politecnico di Torino and Southeast University Nanjing. In 2020-21 he directed the documentary URBAN MORPHOLOGIES IN TRANSITION. THE FORM OF CONTEMPORARY URBAN SETTLEMENTS IN EUROPE AND ASIA (with Vítor Oliveira, Sylvain Malfroy, Attilio Petruccioli, Chen Fei and Tim Stonor), officially presented in Torino in the framework of 2021 European Researchers' Night. He was member of the Scientific Committee of ISUF Italy 2022 Bologna (MORPHOLOGY AND URBAN DESIGN. NEW STRATEGIES FOR A CHANGING SOCIETY) and of ISUF International 2021 Glasgow (URBAN FORM FOR SUSTAINABLE AND PROSPEROUS CITIES). He is member of the Steering Committee of the H2020 Widera Project TWIN2EXPAND (University of Cyprus, Chalmers University, Politecnico di Torino, University College of London, Space Syntax Ltd), research program towards research excellence in Evidence-Based Planning and Urban Design. His publications can be organized in five different fields: past and future of urban forms, theories and techniques of architectural and urban design, the idea of landscape and its relationship with human culture and settlement, built environment, heritage and design of existing artefacts.
