Born in Turin in 1946, he graduated in Architecture in 1969. In the early 1970’s he collaborated with architects Giordanino, Dolza, and Raineri, and worked as project manager in the technical department of Dega constructions. In 1972 he won, with Adriana Comoglio, the national competition for an elementary school in Alessandria, later realized between 1979 and 1984 (Architecture in the 1980’s in Piedmont, Electa Publishing, 1990). Since 1970 he has worked as an independent professional and is the owner of the Giuseppe Veglia Architecture and Urbanistics studio, where he is engaged in numerous public and private projects, specializing in the architecture of schools and office facilities. Dividing his time between new constructions and restoration and renovation projects of historic buildings, Giuseppe Veglia has focused his research on the adoption of compact shapes and materials that require minimal maintenance throughout time, so as to reduce the buildings’ costs of preservation and upkeep. He was called as inspector and expert witness for the Piedmont Region, the City of Turin, the University of Turin, and a number of institutions, including the inspection, during construction, of the former Bona woolen mill in Carignano, a project of Alberto Sartoris.
