Cesare Griffa studied architecture in Turin and London. He started his career working for major practices, including Zaha Hadid Architects, and in 2006 he founded his own studio in Turin (Italy).
He is a Fulbright Fellow and teaches in a number of public and private universities and in Italy and abroad. His interests range from architecture to design (from the spoon to the city), his design approach tends to combine innovative technologies and sustainability with a vision always heading towards the future. His work aims to put the finger in that complicated love affair that links Humanity with Planet Earth. In particular he is fascinated by an architecture conceived as a life support system that produces food, air, and energy. Among other things, he has been studying methods for the integration of microalgae as a living material to make architecture.
