Among others she works at West 8 Urban Design & Landscape Architecture, MVRDV and Kcap before opening her own studio: LOOP Landscape & Architecture Design in 2010. In 2007 at IUAV of Venice she defends a PHD titled “City Wrinkles. Art as a Device for Urban Change” on the dynamics of unplanned transformation of contemporary cities. The project is presented in several European Universities, such as DAMS of Bologna and EAA (Estonian Academy of Art) of Tallinn. In 2010 she starts teaching landscape architecture at TU Delft and at the Academie van Bouwkunst of Amsterdam.
Within her studio Silvia works in all fields of landscape architecture, public space design, and small-scale architecture, with a special focus on the relationships between space, scale and users. The attention and research for the detail, the materiality and elements finds it origins in the believe that the beauty of a space is the result of the care for the big scale as well as for the smallest detail. The studio believes in a new and contemporary way of working: starting from specific expertise developing and working in network with other structures of professionals.
In 2015 the office was moved to Italy where it continues its professional activity, cooperating with other offices at international level, such as Board, IND Rotterdam, Kcap, West8, Urban Matters Madrid, LOLA landscape Architecture.
