Cesare Griffa (Turin 1973) studied architecture at the Polytechnic of Turin and the Architectural Association in London, and practiced collaborating with Zaha Hadid Architects and Arata Isozaki & Partners. He founded his own professional practice in Turin in 2006. He is a Fulbright fellow, Visiting Professor at the Technion Israel Institute of Technology, and has been Visiting Professor of Architectural Design at the Polytechnic of Turin, Visiting Scholar at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, NY), and at MIT Senseable City Lab (Cambridge, MA). He has lectured on the topics of digital and sustainable architecture in Italy and abroad. He is the author of “La Città Digitale” (Meltemi, 2008) and "Smart Creatures" (Edilstampa 2012). His work has been selected in many international competitions and exhibits and widely published. Current research includes the use of parametric 3d modeling software, rapid prototyping tools, physical computing, and bio-chemicals to explore possible applications of micro-algal bio technology for sustainable architecture and design. His project WaterLilly 2.0 is being used as a model for the realization of one of the first micro-algal facades in the world in the Expo 2015 Future Food District.
The studio-work is based on an experimental approach developed through the research activities. It offers architecture, interiors, and smart design services to a wide range of clients, and promotes and organizes workshops, exhibitions and events, involving local and international communities and students groups.
