Paolo Cresci

Sustainable Development Leader in Italy

I am a chartered building engineer with over 20 years’ experience and I am currently leading Sustainable Development at Arup in Milan. 

I have developed a significant international experience in London leading multidisciplinary teams in the delivery of innovative and highly sustainable projects with world-class architects.

My technical expertise and experience cover various sectors including arts and culture, aviation, commercial, hospitality, residential and healthcare.

Design focused, operating across masterplan and building scale, I am passionate about supporting architects and designers through an integrated and creative approach that always privileges the quality of design.

One of my prime interests is the evolution of the relationship between human and nature in the era of technique and, in particular, how data-informed design can help designers to improve the quality of life in our cities and buildings whilst generating positive effects on the natural environment.
