Meet the Intern
TruexCullins is pleased to welcome Pier Giovanni Spaziani to our firm. Pier began his internship at TruexCullins in June 2012. He is from Foligno, (near Pervgia) Italy, where he earned his master’s degree in sustainable architecture from the Sapienza University of Rome at Valle Giulia. Pier is a registered architect in Italy. He was recommended to TruexCullins by our good friendlandscape architect Keith Wagner.
Pier’s family values architecture. His father is an engineer, his mother is a professor of hospitality management, and his older sister is an architect. Growing up, he spent many hourswith his father discussing building design. Pier is an artistic person who uses architecture to express his creativity. In school, he was drawn to design that deepened a person’s relationship with the natural world around them.
He has been enjoying his internship at TruexCullins. Residential and public buildings are his main interest, especially projects where community and sustainability are a priority. He has been contributing his European perspectiveto discussions about design projects.
Pier lives in Burlington with his wife Freya, whom he met in Rome four years ago. She is an assistant manager at Edgewater Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont.
