PhD Student

Alessandra Bruno is currently a FNRS PhD researcher at the Faculty of Architecture La Cambre-Horta (ULB). She was born in Pinerolo (Turin, Italy) in 1993 and moved to Brussels in 2015. Since then, she has actively participated in various temporary occupation projects, both institutional and non-institutional. In 2018, she successfully obtained her Master's degree, with her thesis centered on the process of institutionalizing temporary occupations in Brussels. Her research specifically digged into the case of "Marie Moskou", a temporary project facilitated by the NGO Toestand.

In 2019, Alessandra began her PhD studies under the guidance of Ludivine Damay (Sasha) and Wouter Van Acker (Hortence). Her research centers around the concept of learning-by-doing education in architecture schools. Specifically, she is exploring the impact of construction activities on the learning process, emphasizing the integration of design and construction. Her research investigates the pedagogical approaches, theoretical aspects, and commitments associated with these practices.

Apart from her research project, Alessandra Bruno actively participates in discussions and initiatives that advocate for a more inclusive and accessible use of public spaces, as well as the right to housing.
