When I was a child I used to dream of becoming a prince. Then an astronomer. Then an opera singer. Then I started studying architecture In Venice because I wanted to be a restorer. I ended up loving urbanism. My graduation project was a low-cost incremental housing project for immigrants. It was awarded at sustainability event "TerraFutura" in Florence.
I did my internship in Barcelona (@Archikubik), working mainly on competitions. I moved back to Venice and started collaborating with a local firm (@Studio Zordan) on a big residential project and, later, with a firm in Padua (@Bongiana Architetture) specialised in interior design of stores and stands for clothing brands.
In 2010 I changed direction and started working in the participatory design field in Turin (@Avventura Urbana). I was involved in community regeneration projects, participatory events (Electronic Town Meetings, Open Space Technology, Planning for Real, etc.), urban and architectural projects communication (both graphic and content), public consultations and presentations. Two years later two of my chiefs founded a new firm (TRA architettura condivisa) and I followed them. We continued to deal with participatory design but also with urban planning and renovation, feasibility studies, social housing and co-housing projects, new and innovative residential models, adaptive reuse.
After these exciting years, I thought it was time for me to branch out on my own too. I currently deal with my own projects and competitions, under the name of Andrea Andrich Architetto.
Even if I'm a little bit experienced now, I still think I have a lot of things to learn and experiences to make. That's why I've moved to Berlin. I'm looking for new adventures and challenges with myself, new exchanges and experiences, new opportunities. That's why you're reading this.
