Francesco Pierazzi trained in his hometown of Florence and graduated under Professor Alberto Breschi with a thesis in Museum Design and Museography. He apprenticed in Germany with Gerhard Aeckerle und Partners, working on the Parkhotel and Conference Center project in Pforzheim, before returning to Italy to practice architecture.
During his time in Italy he worked on various projects, from retail outlets to mixed used schemes and domestic projects. He taught Urban Design and Museography at the Faculty of Architecture in Florence, and Interior Design at the Art School Florence.
Francesco Pierazzi relocated to London to join the well established practice Charles Barclay Architects in 2002. He worked on high end domestic projects throughout London and played a significant role in many design international competitions - including the RIBA award winning Kielder Observatory in Northumberland. He also worked at Brady Mallalieu Architects and Charles Tashima Architecture.
He established FrancescoPierazziArchitects in London in 2009, with early commissions including a variety of domestic projects both in London and abroad.
