Lavinia Scaletti is an architectural and urban designer living and working in London, with previous professional experience in France and Chile. Between the hours spent working full-time in urban design at Publica, she undertakes independent projects and research, largely as an extension of her previous university work at the Royal College of Art, investigating issues of housing and urban development. Some examples of her work are the proposal for an alternative housing typology for Wembley or the study of possible solutions to prevent the demolition of Wards Corner Market in London. Her master thesis project Zip City: Houseless not Homeless, also presented for the Future Architecture Platform, is an urban programme exploring a new way of living in cities without a house, redefining the concepts of ownership, sharing and home.
