Jacopo Grilli



I am an urban designer based in Amsterdam,
but my head is scattered wherever there is a sense of city and humanity.
I believe that cities are the mirrors of our society. Working on the future by designing them mean a great responsibility to me.
Imagination, first of all, is the tool that guides the best solution for an improvement and modification to achieve a better lifestyle of our fundamental human environment: The City
