  • Communication
  • Sustainable (architectural) design
  • Integrated design
  • Sustainable building materials
  • Sustainable installation materials
 

Short Bio:

Building engineer (licenced) from Rome. During my studies and my professional experiences I developed my interest for sustanability. After the graduation I attended a course of Sustainable Urban Regeneration and a course called "New Energy To Rebuild",
where I learned about energy consumption and in buildings. Lately I participated to a training school in Lancaster, England, about
the principle of restorative and regenerative design. I am working as researcher in the sustainability field at the University of Rome Tor Vergata. I am a cofounder of "My Home Please!" an initiative to address homelessness by architectural solutions.

Margherita Finamore, Architect

Main Profession:
Architect
Company:
Pesaro Council - Public Works Department

Main fields of skills:

  • Building management systems
  • Micro climates
  • Sustainable (architectural) design
  • Integrated design
  • Sustainable building materials
 

Short Bio:

I was graduated with honors in Architecture at the University of Florence in 1992. In 2007 I attended the post-graduate “BIOARCHITECTURE Design Laboratory” with the supervision of LUCIEN STEIL and ROB KRIER and I learnt how important the foot print is that we leave by ours and how to project taking care of the environmental effects of building and the effects of the buildings themselves. I am currently working on - the design of a new school and the aim of which is to achieve the characteristics of the Near Zero Energy Building; - the construction of two social housing buildings with the requirements of the Italian System Evaluation and Certification of the Environmental Sustainability of Buildings based on ITACA Protocol.
Since 1997 as project architect I have been responsible for public works for Pesaro Council and I apply environmental sustainability and energy efficiency design when ever I can. I really believe that general design principles of very low-energy buildings can minimise losses and consumption, maximise gains and supply the remaining energy demand with renewable energy. It is possible to design high-performance buildings good for the environment, without sacrifying architectural quality or resulting in excessive costs.

I worked at Green Building Council in Helsinki for the whole mouth of September developing the approach and contents of the circular economy in the EU countries as the pioneer of the Climate-KIC programme.
