After graduating in architecture from Milan's Polytechnic University in 1929, Gardella began his career as an assistant to Gio Ponti, a famous Italian architect and designer. In 1933, he opened his own architecture and design studio in Milan, which quickly became one of the city's most important.

During the 1930s and 1940s, Gardella worked on numerous interior design projects for private residences, stores and offices, as well as on larger architectural projects, such as the Italian Pavilion for the 1937 Universal Exhibition in Paris.

In the 1950s and 1960s, Gardella continued to work on major architectural projects, including the design of Rome's National Museum of Modern Art in 1959 and the transformation of the former Olivetti typewriter factory into an office and retail complex in 1967.

During his career, Gardella was also active in the publishing world, contributing to several architecture and design magazines. He received numerous awards and recognitions for his work, including the prestigious Compasso d'Oro in 1955 and 1957.

Today, Gardella's works are exhibited in numerous museums and galleries around the world and are considered important examples of modern Italian design.
