Stefano Boeri, born in 1956, studied architecture at Politecnico in Milan where he graduated in 1980. In 1989 he received his PhD from the Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia (IUAV), in Venice.
He is an architect based in Milan, with his studio Boeri Studio (Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca, Giovanni La Varra, 1998- 2008) and Stefano Boeri Architetti (since 2008). From 2014 he also leads an office in Shanghai, in partnership with Yibo Xu. Studio is committed to the research and practice of contemporary architecture and urbanism nationally and internationally.
Stefano has predominantly focused on the design of buildings and open spaces for European urban areas requiring regeneration or redevelopment. He has thus undertaken and carried out a series of projects regarding the transformation and re-use of several waterfronts (Marseille, Doha, Genoa, Naples, Trieste, Thessaloniki, Mytilene, La Maddalena, etc.) and urban interventions (Milan, Rome, Moscow, Beijing, Sao Paulo, Qingdao, Marseille, Astana, Venice, Bolsen, etc.).
