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. Since 2006, he founded his own studio in Turin.
He is a Fulbright fellow, 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 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-alge bio technology for sustainable architecture and design.
The studio-work is based on an experimental approach developed through the research activities and includes the use of advanced digital design and prototyping technologies (software and hardware), in an open source environment that tends to take in serious account both social and environmental concerns, with some explorations in the fields of electronics and biology. The studio offers architecture and interiors design services to a wide range of clients, and promotes and organizes design and architectural workshops, exhibitions and events, involving local and international communities and students groups in many collaborative projects.
