Agnese Accotto gained her degree in architecture at the Polytechnic School of Turin (Italy) and at the Ecole Nationale d'Architecture de Grenoble (France).
She worked as an intern in a variety of architectural practices in Turin and Milan. In 2012 Agnese started working for T.A.I.G.A., a landscape and architecture consultancy based in Turin, where she has worked on many landscape projects of different sizes. This includes the architectural and landscape guidelines for the new high speed railway between Turin and Lyon, in which she worked closely with engineers and ecology consultants in a multidisciplinary team. She has also produced Façade Colour Plans for two different city councils in northern Italy. During these projects she was involved in the full range of work stages, from concept to completion.
She also enjoys working at a smaller scale on private renovation projects as a freelance architect and has written applications for both public consultations and European funding.
Agnese is very interested in the social dimension of architecture. During her National Civil Service she developed a landscape education project and she worked for the National Association Libera to refurbish a property confiscated from mafia.
In her spare time she likes hiking in the mountains.
