Lecture Francesca Torzo in the framework of the Maarten Van Severen Chair
Francesca Torzo (1975) is an Italian architect-maker; an architect who creates architecture in a sensory way. She studied architecture in Delft, Barcelona, Mendrisio and Venice [IUAV]. She worked for architect Peter Zumthor and Bosshard Vaquerarchitekten, Zurich. In 2008 she started her own architectural practice in Genoa. She designed and built - to name a Belgian project - the recent expansion and renovation of Z33 in Hasselt. More info on francescatorzo.it
