Gianluca Picardi has been working as a freelance lighting designer in San Juan since 2007, after working in Milan in the Italian design team of the German company ERCO, a leading international specialist in architectural lighting.
He obtained a Bachelor Degree in Florence (Accademia di Belle Arti) and a Master Degree in Lighting Design at the prestigious Accademia di Brera in Milan. The artistic background shaped his preference for an aesthetic approach to lighting design without neglecting the functional and imperative need for energy saving.
He features collaborations with many architectural firms in Puerto Rico and the Americas. Among the many projects, some have won the highest recognitions of the Puerto Rican chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
