Today on Obsessed Show, I’m excited to chat with the president and co-owner of NYC tech-first architecture and design firm Mancini Duffy, Christian Giordano and co-owner and design principal, Jessica Mann-Amato. Christian has dubbed himself and his podcast "The Anti-Architect" and I’m excited to dig into that statement alone…and learn more about the 105-year-old firm.
Drawing inspiration from some of the tech-forward companies Mancini works with—like Peloton, Disney, and Soho House—Christian and Jessica focus on technologies that propel the world of design forward. Mancini launched the Design Lab, which brings together designers, technologists, and clients to leverage VR, 3D Printing, Drones, Generative Design, and AI to break barriers limiting traditional design capabilities.
I’m excited to chat with them about how they recalibrated and modernized Mancini, sparking industry-wide change.
Infusing Technology into all Facets of the Design Process
The Creation of their software, The Toolbelt, and its impact on the industry
AND the Future of Workplace Design
So without further ado, please enjoy this conversation with Christian Giordano and Jessica Mann-Amato.
