Biography[edit]

He is a lecturer at the University of Westminster[2] in London and owns a digital fabrication laboratory called the FabPub.

He studied at the École nationale supérieure d'architecture de Paris-Malaquais[8] and in London, in 2003, at the Architectural Association School of Architecture. He then worked at Zaha Hadid Architects, Ateliers Jean Nouvel and Proctor and Matthews Architects[9] for three years. In 2011, he started teaching Diploma Studio 10 at the university of Westminster with Toby Burgess. To allow their students to share their ideas, they both created the online platform WeWantToLearn.net[10] receiving 600,000 views since its creation.[11][12] Arthur also founded his practice Mamou-Mani ltd in 2011. The projects include the Magic Garden for Karen Millen[13][14][15] and the 3D Pop-Up Studio for the Xintiandi shopping mall in Shanghai, one of the first component-based, fully 3D Printed pavilion (with Andrei Jipa and Stephany Xu)[16][17] Another pop-up project is "The Fitting Room" designed in collaboration with James K. Cheung of ARUP Associates[18] a large origami tree made of 500 laser-cut polypropylene folded pieces.[19] In March 2016, he participates with Maggie Aderin-Pocock, Toby Burgess, Linda Aitken and Els Leclerq, to a Samsung report that explores such questions as "How will we live; how will we work; how will we relax?".[20]
