“Beauty inherently nurtures our evolution as spiritual beings, therefore beautiful architecture becomes a point of access into our own evolution.”
Fabrizia Zorzenon, Arch. Ph.D.
Fabrizia Zorzenon is a celebrated architect, designer and researcher, and a native of beautiful Venice, Italy. Throughout her life, Fabrizia has always dedicated herself to cultivating the idea of beauty as a form of evolution.
The center-point of her work and expertise, architecture has become a powerful and expressive language for Fabrizia to communicate highly specific messages. “In addition to its structural and functional nature, architecture has the unique ability to drive thoughts and move our emotions, more than we most consciously realize. A building may not be understood at all, and yet it can move us so deeply and alter our whole perception of reality, even before the intellect realizes it.”
Eager to work on projects and research missions that develop new design approaches and rethink the importance of architecture in the modern world, Fabrizia strives to create spaces that serve as powerful tools for both the individual and the collective, ultimately helping to create a sense of freedom and well-being for all. “My goal is to emphasize the hidden potential of architecture by creating spaces in which people can rediscover themselves as fully capable and fully empowered to create the life of their choosing.”
With a background in art and scenography, Fabrizia Zorzenon graduated from the University of Architecture in Venice in 2006, following her degree with a Ph.D. in “Economics and Techniques for the Conservation of the Architectural and Environmental Heritage” at the University of Nova Gorica. A few years later, her insightful research thesis became the subject of a thought-provoking book titled “Footbridges as new urban spaces: a cultural project for contemporary landscape,” which was released in 2014.
During this time, Fabrizia had also the opportunity to write for important design magazines, attend international conferences such as IASBE and FOOTBRIDGE, and contribute to the design process of important infrastructural projects led by Enzo Siviero, including Pescara’s “Ponte Nuovo”, as well as the “Rarinantes Footbridge” in Padua, just to mention a couple. In 2014, her article “Footbridges as landscape design” was published in “Footbridge. Small is Beautiful,” promoted by the European Council of Civil Engineers.
However, Fabrizia’s broad interests touch also other areas, such as exhibition design, luxury real estate, furniture design using cutting-edge recycle cardboard, and many more.
In 2010, Fabrizia launched Officina 1159, an exhibition design agency that produced more than hundreds of projects and concepts for theater, trade fairs, showrooms, movies, and fashion shows, with very positive reviews both from the media and from the public. In 2012, she developed “Emotion”, an innovative modular exhibition system sponsored by GiPlanet Group. Within this framework, another important participation date back to the 90s when she took part in the making of a few movie productions among which “La Femme De Chambre Du Titanic” directed by Bigas Luna.
In 2012, Fabrizia Zorzenon developed Imiss Design, an elegant furniture collection made of recycled corrugated cardboard which was officially launched during the Milano Design Week. A few years later, Imiss Design was selected for “Design For 2015” and received a special mention at the international “Month of Design in Ljubljana”. More recently, Imiss Design brought Fabrizia to collaborate with the Italian television channel (RAI) at the creation of a new TV Show, “Da Cosa Nasce Cosa,” produced by Simona Ercolani.
Since 2013, Fabrizia has been primarily committed to expanding her network of partnerships and collaborations on a global scale, working on residential and commercial projects in London, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, Singapore and Dubai. Here, she deepened her knowledge in the luxury real estate market and developed her innovative design ideas and philosophy that are today embodied in the image and mission of Evolvere Abitando.
