Interview with Arturo Tedeschi: the evolution of computational design

Arturo Tedeschi on the evolution of Computational Design

Arturo Tedeschi is one of the world’s leading experts in computational design, a consultant for companies from architecture to the apparel and automotive industries. I interviewed him 8 years after the publication of his most famous book AAD Algorithms-Aided Design to talk about the present and future of computational design, the computational designer’s role, Training, Virtual Reality, Ecology, 3D printing and Machine Learning applications to architectural design.

Pioneer 10 plaque: The most ambitious project in communication design history

The most ambitious project in the history of communication design

The Pioneer 10 is the first man-made object we sent outside our solar system. It holds the most ambitious visual communication project ever conceived by a human mind: a message to extraterrestrial life. The authors are Carl Sagan, Frank Drake and Linda Salzman, who carried out this incredible project just three weeks to go before launch. In this article, I explain the design problems and the decisions made by the authors to solve them.

Giuseppe Gallo, design series Digital Quarantine published on the Contemporary Atlas of Art by De Agostini

Digital Quarantine featured on the De Agostini Atlas of Contemporary Art

The De Agostini Atlante dell’arte Contemporanea is the oldest artistic Italian contemporary art yearbook. For the 2021 edition, curator Stefania Pieralice has selected some of the best contemporary Italian art and design projects. Among them, to my great delight, my project Digital Quarantine: a design series about the impact of digitalisation on our lives. One topic that, as a designer, I think is urgent to talk about. In this article, you will find more information about the history of Atlante dell’arte and its 2021 edition.
