Igor Pantic is an architect and researcher currently based in London, where he works for Zaha Hadid Architects. In 2011 he graduated with Master in Architecture and Urbanism from Design Research Laboratory (AADRL) at the Architectural Association in London, after previously finishing his studies at the University of Belgrade. His professional experience also includes collaboration with London based experimental design practices Biothing and Kokkugia, as well as studio Mit-Arh from Belgrade.

In addition to this, Igor has been teaching computational classes at the AA School of Architecture (intermediate unit 9) and Bartlett GAD in London (UK), as well as algorithmic design workshops in AA Rovinj visiting school (Croatia) and at the University of Belgrade (Serbia), where he has been an invited lecturer and visiting critic in undergraduate and graduate studios since 2011.

His current interests are focused on exploration of generative design methodologies and research into material and behavioural systems informed by algorithmic logic. During his research conducted at the AADRL he also developed interest in machinic fabrication processes, responsive robotic systems and role of environmental and social feedback in processes of both digital design and fabrication.

I stopped working for others because then I have the responsibility and I feel like an advertising agency. When I work for Yello, I can make a fool out of myself. Whatever I do I go through the process of becoming a child, an idiot, totally unimportant. When I have the responsibility to start with it is disturbing." "I think every human is a God. All our life is about becoming like a child, trying to find out who is really hidden inside yourself, who you really are, who is the divine being inside. Great alpinist climb mountains not to become world famous, but to learn something about themselves, to come closer to that inner-child. If you are exposing yourself to the process of climbing the mountain, it is very important you are prepared to make a fool of yourself, to let yourself fall into the emptiness of vague idea, and to have the courage to be a total idiot. Only then you have a chance to die with the smile on your face.
