Marco Vanucci is a London-based architect and researcher.
In 2007 he founded OPENSYSTEMS, an architectural research and design studio that explores the emergent interdisciplinary interaction between architecture, engineering, biology and computation.
His understanding of architecture as a problem of engineering material organization focuses his research on the development of an integral and coherent design approach at the intersection of architecture, engineering and computation in the endeavor to develop generative and performative systems.
After his graduation from the Architectural Association in 2004, he was employed by Zaha Hadid where he worked, among other projects, on the new London Aquatic Centre for the Olympics 2012. Marco is currently working at AKT where he found the opportunity to develop his interest for non–linear system organization and all that there is in between architecture and engineering.
Marco has had his work featured in several exhibitions across Europe and North America; he has also participated to numerous conferences and symposia among which Acadia 2008 in Minneapolis. He has been invited as guest critic at the Architectural Association and at Columbia University and delivered several design workshops in Europe.
He currently continues to pursue his personal research, which can be accessed through the blog openSystems.
