School of Built Environment

Francesco is an Associate Professor in High Performance Architecture at the Faculty of Built Environment of the University of New South Wales. Prior to joining UNSW BE he held appointments at The University of Sydney, in the Architectural Science discipline, and at Politecnico di Bari (Italy), in the Architectural Engineering program. His main research expertise is in facade engineering and design. In recent years his research has focused on the development of technologies and systems for kinetic facades. In particular, Francesco aims to explore the use of smart materials (shape memory alloys, phase-change materials, and chromogenic materials) in order to create self-adaptive building components. Reduction of building energy demand and increase of indoor comfort are the final goals.

Francesco is currently the Australian representative in the European COST Action on “Adaptive Facades Network” and has been involved as Chief Investigator in several research projects in Australia and overseas. He is currently CI of the ARC-funded Training Centre for Advanced Manufacturing of Prefabricated Housing.
