About

My name is Pio Lorenzo Cocco and I am a 27-years-old architect based in Naples and Rovigo. In 2017 I graduated with highest mark in Architecture at the University of Naples Federico II, with a final dissertation about Computational Design applied to ancient technologies. In 2019 I achieved the II Level Master “BIM Manager” at Politecnico di Milano, deepening the field of Generative Design applied to BIM. Then I attained the qualification of Authorized Rhinoceros Trainer Mcneel. After several work experiences accrued since 2015, I currently work as a BIM Manager and Computational Design, reaching a design philosophy oriented towards a digital and interdisciplinary approach to design and architecture.
