Maria Giulia Pagliero

Design Director

Maria Giulia is an architect and a landscape architect with a deep passion for both disciplines. Born in Torino, Italy, Maria Giulia graduated in Architecture in 2009 at Politecnico di Torino, with a thesis on a sustainable, emergency housing based on recycled shipping containers. Soon after her graduation, she started her career as a free-lance architect, collaborating with a group of young Florentine architects, Acme Architetture.

While working as an architect, Giulia started to study landscape architecture, attending a post graduate Masters in Landscape Design at Università di Firenze, Italy. Looking for a deeper understanding of planting design and garden composition, in 2011, Giulia left Italy for a Masters in Garden Design at Greenwich University, London.

Prior to MAKIA, Giulia was a project designer at VIDA Landscape architects and planners (2013-2107), with experience both in Costa Rica and in Florence, Italy
