Diego Zoppi - National Counselor for the Design Competition in the city of Genoa, Consiglio Nazionale Architetti, Pianificatori, Paesaggisti e Conservatori

Diego Zoppi, (born in 1960), obtained his degree in Architecture with honors from Genoa. His thesis was adopted as a guideline by the Municipal Administration to reduce the port impact on the west of the city (area 3 km long). Detailed studies and projects were then commissioned to him for the progressive implementation of the proposal (today completed).

He deals with Planning, Urban Design, Restoration and architecture in Italy. He has worked on numerous city frameworks, the project for the National Rowing Center, selected for the 2006 Venice Architecture Biennale, squares, waterfronts and landscape of public spaces in Italy, the Middle East and the Far East.

With the associated firm of which he is a founder (AR&P Architecture) and other colleagues, he has successfully participated in various national competitions (redevelopment of the Genoa-Voltri area at sea, industrial area reconversion in Genoa-Cornigliano, new access system for the Historic Center of the Republic of San Marino), as well as international competitions (numerous new towns in Shanghai, restoration of the citadel of Nanjing - China, new tourist center in the historic city of Jiu Ji Jiao - China) and projects (swimming stadium in Hanoi - Vietnam, waterfront of Ho Chi Minh City, redevelopment of the center of Ryadh - Saudi Arabia, innovation center solar park in Dubai). Several of his projects have featured in specialised Magazines (Casabella, Domus ...). 

Zoppi was also a member of the Board for the Provincial Council of Architects of Genoa of which he was President. Since 2016, he has been a member of the Italian National Council of Architects, Landscapers, Planners, and Conservatories, within which he coordinates the Department for Urban Planning Research & Development. He is currently working on national bills to facilitate the urban regeneration of Italian suburbs and for greater competitiveness of Italian cities through the widespread use of Design Competitions in two grades. He advocates bottom-up decision-making paths and greater coherence between different legislation, which in Italy is defined by multiple institutions, not always connected to each other.

Diego Zoppi is currently adjunct Professor in Urban Planning at the University of Genoa.

Diego Zoppi will be participating in the third panel of the ACE-UIA International Conference on Design Competitions, 25 October 2019, UNESCO headquarters, Paris.
