Jonathan Ravera Chion

 

Born to an Italian father and a Seychelloise mother in a tiny village near Turin, I spent my first 12 years at school and playing in my parent’s Chinese restaurant. Constantly with our clients I developed a natural understanding of needs and courtesy towards them.

In 2003 I successfully concluded my studies at the “Istituto Superiore per Geometri G. Cena” in Ivrea as a Surveyor. Before going on to University I spent 6 months working in London, in order to improve my Language and get acquainted with the anglo-saxon culture.

2004 I enrolled to the Politecnic Institute of Turin address Architecture 

 

2005 First  work experience in the prestigious Studio Rolla in Turin http://www.studiorolla.it to better understand project design in a high level architectural studio.

 

During this period I met and interacted with several architects, but there was one in particular who possessed the art of architecture in his hands Massimo Raschiatore

Background

As soon as the work experience concluded I began work at  MRA Studio for Massimo Raschiatore (part time) and at the same time working on my Master Degree in Architectural Design at the Turin Polytechnic . The combination of work and study permitted me to sink into the project designing world applying my findings to a small renovation project of my own property in Torino, creating a Mini-loft suited for a young professional. Presently being leased.

 

I concluded my studies in March 2011 designing a Multifunctional Interactive Culinary space.The building by day was a Taste University transforming into a restaurant Shop by Night. Situated in Saint-Germain-Des-Pres Paris. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9W0fNmKnjo
