Ingardia Gianni was born in Catania and graduated in Architecture in Palermo. He lives and works in Trapani, where he opened his office in 2001.
Since 2006, he has been exploring energy-saving in architecture and has dedicated himself to experimenting with low-tech technologies. In his most recent projects, he has focused on the optimal integration of bioclimatic principles into architecture. He works to achieve the highest environmental comfort levels through passive systems that harness wind, natural light, and moisture.
His firm has worked on numerous private residential buildings and has to its credit the design of the new Cantina Ottoventi on the slopes of Mount Erice, Trapani.
Ingardia also regularly participates in competitions, some important highlights being the competition for the extension of Serlachius Museum Gösta in Finland and the competition for the extension of the Mareno di Piave campus in Veneto.
