The designer and architect Stefano Casciani, at IE University

Stefano Casciani, one of the most influential designers in the world and Deputy Director of Domus design journal, is giving a lecture at IE University. This lecture is the closure of the “INOUT: affecting architecture, expanding possibilities” series that IE University Professor Laura Martínez de Guereñu coordinated.

Stefano Casciani (born 1955 Rome) is a designer, critic, architect, curator, and consultant. He is especially known for his work with the prestigious architecture and design journal, Domus, where he has served as the deputy director since 2007. However, he began his affiliation with this Milan-based publication in 1979, when Alessandro Mendini invited him as a freelance editor. At age 25 he was the Art Director for Zanotta.  He participated in the experimental activities of the Studio Alchimia and  has worked as a communication consultant, art director, and designer for many design companies, among which are Alessi, Bisazza, Bticino, Cassina, Ivalo Lighting, Biennale di Venezia, Triennale di Milano, and City of Rome. He is internationally recognized today as an influential and singular figure in the design world due to his multifaceted career. Visiting Professor in design and architecture schools and universities in Italy and abroad, Casciani has written hundreds of articles and more than twenty books, mainly focusing on the relationships between architecture, design, and art. Casciani has served on numerous juries and received noteworthy awards such as the Compasso d’Oro 2001 for the RAI television program ”Lessons of Design”.

The INOUT lecture series brought to IE University seven international experts that provided their distinct vision on the diversification that is currently taking place in the world of architecture, a discipline in which not only the architect participates but also a group of professionals whose work is essential for the success of any project.
