Mauro Salerno

Interior Architect

My professional goal is to become an architect which will meet the needs of today’s society, environment and economy. Architecture should hold the ideals – the aesthetic values, the moral values – of the place in which the structure is being built and contribute to the daily life of the people surrounding it.

The architect must cover not only the practical needs of the people, but must create meaningful places. Knowledge, memory, perception and interpretation can be significant design-defining instruments. I believe that architects who are responsible for building, in any environment, should take this into consideration. They should preserve the memory of what is important for the people there. This is the starting point that offers a place to pick up and translate into the modern day.

In my studies of architecture, I have gained many experiences with this in mind; I hope to deepen my acquired knowledge from this exciting period, now at my internship at COCC.
