Bewoner, Researcher
Wie is Paolo?

I live in Amsterdam center in an unsustainable neighborhood full of unsorted waste every morning. I have an old boiler that consumes a lot of gas but the landlord doesn't want to change the heating system. 

Werk en hobbies

I work as a postdoc researcher at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, part of the research group High Density Energy Landscapes, coordinating a research project in partnership with the Municipality of Amsterdam. The research project is exploring the spatial dimension of the energy transition in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Region. Landschapsarchitectuur/high-density-energy-landscapes-2017-heden/metro/



I value the herbs growing in between the bricks and the urban fauna :) love them!

De droom van Paolo

I settled here for research reasons. I knew about the low renewable energy share in Amsterdam, is part of my research to contribute to the advancement of the energy transition, but I surprised myself for how waste is treated, because sorting is not mandatory for citizens, as in many other big cities in Europe.
