Dr. Alessandro Dell'Endice

Alessandro is a chartered building engineer and architect with a strong interest in structural design, masonry structures and digital fabrication.
In 2013, he completed a Master's Degree in Building Engineering and Architecture at the Politecnico di Bari (Italy), and in 2016 he earned a Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Digital Fabrication at ETH Zurich. In 2018, he started a PhD at BRG, focusing on developing computational tools for the structural assessment and design of unreinforced masonry structures using the Discrete Element Method, investigating the role of geometrical imperfections. In 2021, Alessandro took part as a structural designer of Striatus, an unreinforced masonry 3DCP pedestrian bridge built in Venice in 2021.
After defending his PhD in June 2022, Alessandro currently works at the BRG as a Post-Doctoral Researcher.
