Arturo Tedeschi (born 24 April 1979) is an Italian architect, computational designer and writer. He's the founder of the homonymous architecture practice and design consulting which promotes a new kind of algorithmic-based design.[1] His work includes techniques such as Algorithms-Aided Design (AAD), CNC milling, robotic milling, 3D printing,[2] artificial intelligence,[3] virtual reality.[4] Arturo Tedeschi is the author of the books: Architettura Parametrica,[5] Parametric Architecture with Grasshopper[6] and AAD Algorithms-Aided Design,[7] a reference book on algorithmic modelling based on the Grasshopper platform.


Arturo Tedeschi started his career in 2004, combining professional practice in Italy with a personal research on algorithms-aided design, focusing on relationships between architecture and emerging technologies. In 2010 he published Architettura Parametrica,[8] a technical book on computational design translated into English as Parametric Architecture with Grasshopper.[9] In the same year he worked at Zaha Hadid Architects in London. in 2011 he founds the studio arturotedeschi and began working both as a designer and consultant (architecture, furniture, fashion, footwear, automotive). Among his projects: NU:S Installation at Chiostro Del Bramante (Roma, 2012),[10] Parametric Shoes (Roma, 2012) where 3D printing has been applied to fashion design,[11] The CloudBridge (2013),[12][13] Ilabo Shoes with Ross Lovegrove (Milano, 2015),[14] In-Formation with Ross Lovegrove (Koln, 2017), Needle Watch (2017),[15] Transmission at Victoria and Albert Museum with Ross Lovegrove (London, 2017),[16] Fessura wall system (Milano, 2017),[17] Alcantara Corner Lounges for Audi with Lovegrove and Colombo (Milano, 2017),[18] Oyster Chair (Milano, 2018),[19] Iris Concept Car (2020),[20][21] Passerella, a new tram for Milano (2020),[22][23][24][25][26] HorizON suspension lamp for the Venice Glass Week 2020,[27][28] Stage set for Illenium World Tour (2023).[29] In 2014 he published AAD Algorithms-Aided Design.[7] In 2019 he has been appointed Italian Design Ambassador for the Sydney Design festival within the Italian Design Day 2019[30]


Arturo Tedeschi has been an invited lecturer at universities and conferences. He taught and lectured at Politecnico di Milano, Architectural Association School of Architecture in London,[31] Parsons School of Design (New York), ISCTE-IUL Lisbon, University of Sydney, Dubai Institute of Design and Innovation, University of Edinburgh,[32] IUAV Venezia,[33] University of Arkansas Rome Center, Universidad Europea (Madrid).[34]
