Curriculum Vitæ [Summary]
Enrico Giori (b. Vimercate, 1998) is an architecture student at the Rhode Island School of Design (Providence, USA)
As a designer, Giori is interested in participatory planning and co-design processes, which, through experimental design methodologies and the design of ad hoc training and development tools aim to empower both designers and final users, instilling the much-needed practice of designer-user dialogue within creative professions.
