Teaching Philosophy:

Being the principal of studio ABT, a successful professional practice based in Rome, which participates in important international operations involving prestigious professionals like Zaha Hadid & Renzo Piano, David’s teaching philosophy is based on the conviction that academic and professional experience should be re-composed in a single organic didactic event with the students as protagonists.

In both Design Studio and Lecture courses David’s approach tends to focus on the professional projections of academic activity, encouraging the students to perceive the professional value of academic culture.


Teaching Philosophy:

“Don’t tell me how much you work…show me how good you are!”
