is a young Italian architect and aspiring entrepreneur. He works as an
architect and would like to start his own architectural practise one day. He
wanted to learn how to manage not only the design aspects but also the
marketing and management aspects of a small business in the field of
architecture. For this reason, he decided to participate in the programme as a
young entrepreneur to acquire the necessary knowledge to achieve his goals,
working with an experienced entrepreneur in his field. Alejandro Lezcano
Maestre is an experienced entrepreneur from Spain who has been running his
business for 6 years. He is the CEO and founder of the architecture and design
studio Cronotopos. Alejandro learned about the programme and decided to
participate with the aim of discovering new tools and potentials, but also to
grow and improve his business.
During the time of the exchange, Davide had the
opportunity to closely follow various projects. In the beginning, he and
Alejandro started to get involved with international architectural
competitions, which allowed them to experiment in the field of architecture.
They managed to realise new construction, restoration or renovation projects on
site, learning the practical and real aspects of planning and managing a
project. Alejandro says that Davide brought his knowledge of the latest
architectural and modelling programmes, which were useful for managing the
project and the workflow. He also brought a different way of thinking that
allowed a studio that had already started to improve further.
According to Davide, the programme has given
him more knowledge on how to start his own architectural practice and helped
him gain clarity on the key requirements for running his own business in the
future. He has also made some important networking contacts that could lead to valuable
collaborations later on. Alejandro has also benefited from the programme and discovered
new tools and opportunities he had never heard of. He has also started to
expand his business in different sectors and abroad.
