GIORGIA CADEDDU (1985, Italy) is a designer with a training in architecture.
She is currently a research fellow at the University of Cagliari for the European project SUPERA (Supporting the promotion of equality in research and academia), where she is responsible for the visual communication.
Her work as a graphic designer concentrates on its use as a tool for social reflection and power to reveal and synthesize elements that act as new possibilities of representation, new symbols that reject and upturn hyerarchy of images.
She has worked on several design projects exploring vernacular architecture and auto-construction for the public space, participating in international workshops such as Osthang Project in Darmstadt, Germany and the International Festival of Art and Construction in Almeria, Spain. In 2012 she co-founded RYGLAB-Reuse Your Garbage Laboratory, a project for the sustainable design for the public space. In 2018 she was co-founder of Foghíles – encounter of experimentation for the rural space- and she was a member of MAKE Collective a team that promoted in 2019 the Art Setal initiative in Guediawaye, Senegal.
She has long worked around notions of transmission of knowledge that is strictly linked to practical know-how and understading of materials, developing an investigation that calls in different partners on site.
