Silvia Lupini graduates cum laude in 2002 at the School of Architecture of Ascoli Piceno (IT).
In 2003 she moved to the Netherlands to start an extensive experience working for international offices. Among others she worked at WEST 8 Urban Design & Landscape Architecture, MVRDV and KCAP before opening her own studio: LOOP Landscape & Architecture Design, in 2010.
In 2007 at IUAV of Venice she defended a PHD titled “City Wrinkles. Art as a Device for Urban Change” on the dynamics of unplanned transformation of contemporary cities. The project is presented in several European Universities, such as DAMS of Bologna and EAA (Estonian Academy of Art) of Tallinn. In 2010 she started teaching landscape architecture at TU DELFT and at the ACADEMIE VAN BOUWKUNST of Amsterdam.
Within her studio Silvia works in all fields of landscape architecture, public space design, and small-scale architecture, with a special focus on the relationships between space, scale and users.
Silvia attention and research for the detail, the materiality and elements finds its origins in the belief that the beauty of a space is the result of the care for the big scale as well as for the smallest detail.
Silvia believes in a new and contemporary way of working: starting from specific expertise developing and working in network with other structures of professionals.
