Stefano has been in charge of the Park Associati’s 3D visualisation department since 2018, when he joined the practice following his studies in Product and Industrial Design at the European Institute of Design and the State of Art Academy in Turin.

Thanks to Stefano’s contribution, Park Associati’s project visualisation style results in the creation of innovative and original solutions.
Michele began his collaboration with Park Associati in 2017. He arrives in the studio with an already considerable wealth of experience.

From 2019 Michele coordinates Park Plus, the team of research and innovation which he has helped to conceive and that constitutes an increasingly important resource for the project development in studio.
