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.
Today on Obsessed Show I'm chatting with Pinar Guvenc Managing Partner of SOUR studio, which stands for Social + Urban.
She and her company have helped companies like Twitter, Google, P&G, Lego, Mercedes-Benz, the UN and many others solve problems through the power of workshops.
SOUR is the recently rebranded name of the former Eray/Carbajo, an international award-winning architecture and design firm.
We talk to lots of graphic designers and creative directors in the commercial design and ad world, so I'm excited to chat with someone on the architectural side today.
So without further ado, please enjoy this conversation with Pinar Guvenc.
