Arthur Mamou-Mani, a world-renowned London-based architect was a part of an intriguing session in the PA Talks series with Hamid Hassanzadeh, founder of PA discussing his careers, inspirations, 3D Printing, Eco-Parametric Architecture, and his educational studio at the PAACADEMY.
Arthur Mamou-Mani is a French architect and director of the award-winning architecture practice Mamou-Mani. The practice specializes in a new kind of digitally designed and fabricated architecture. He is also a lecturer at the University of Westminster and has given numerous talks around the world on “Eco-Parametric” architectural practice which includes two TedX conferences in the U.S. and France.
A fellow of the Royal Society for Encouragement of the Arts Manufacture and Commerce, he has won the American Architecture Prize, the RIBAj Rising Star Award. He has been awarded the prestigious Pierre Cardin Prize for Architecture from the Academie des Beaux-Arts in France.
The Architects Journal in 2020 named the architectural practice as one of its 100 ‘Disruptor’ practices that are challenging the norms of traditional architecture practice in their drive to bring about sustainable alternatives. Arthur has also founded the digital-fabrication laboratory FabPub. This allows the public to experiment with large-scale laser cutting and 3D printing equipment in Hackney, London.
He studied at the École Nationale supérieure d’architecture de Paris-Malaquais and in London, in 2003, at the Architectural Association School of Architecture. He then later worked at Zaha Hadid Architects, Ateliers Jean Nouvel, and Proctor and Matthews Architects. He started teaching Diploma Studio 10 in 2011 at the University of Westminster with Toby Burgess.
He built the Burning Man Temple in 2018, Galaxia, consisting of 20 timber truss petals converging as a spiral towards one point in the sky. He is the first non-US architect selected for this piece of art. In 2019, he designed Conifera, a 3D-printed bioplastic installation for COS, during Milan design week, in the 16th-century Palazzo Isimbardi.
