BIM Architect

Paolo Ribichesu

Paolo joined Theatreplan in March 2016, where his initial focus was on creating 3D models for a 16,000-seat arena in Macau. He now also supports the design team on a range of other projects. Born in Italy, Paolo studied architecture at the Politecnico di Torino where he graduated in 2004. He gained extensive experience as an architectural assistant both in Italy and Spain, before moving to the UK. 

With a passion for CAD design and 3D modelling, he has always been interested in the convergence of design and technology. Paolo describes his work as a good combination between his artistic interests and technical ideas.

He has strengthened his knowledge in recent years, through regular continuous professional development, including attending a BIM specialisation course. He became an Autodesk Revit Architecture Certified Professional in April 2017.

Paolo’s architectural background means there are obvious synergies when collaborating with Architects on a project. Although his role is not typically face to face with clients, working through the BIM model he collaborates with people in an interesting way. It’s possible to be on a different continent but able to effectively work with partners and share information. He also likes that Revit, in particular, contains the information about the timescale of a product, so he can give the client information they are able to use to assist them through the lifespan of the building project.

Paolo is currently focusing on work for Dublin Institute of Science and Technology, and for Sydney Opera House, where he was able to undertake a site visit in 2018, as part of his familiarisation with the project.
