Igor Pantić is an architect and computational designer based in London, where he leads his design/research practice.

In his work, Pantić explores the ways in which technology influences how we design, make and perceive our environment. His current interests are focused on generative design methodologies and research into material systems informed by algorithmic logic, exploring the connection between the advanced digital tools and both low-cost and robotic fabrication techniques.

Pantić is a Teaching Fellow at The Bartlett School of Architecture UCL in London, where he is teaching at B-Pro Architectural Design (AD) program. He has lectured and taught computational design workshops and seminars internationally, and has previously co-directed the AA Visiting School in Vienna. His previous work experience includes period of 7 years spent at Zaha Hadid Architects, during which he worked on a large number of high-profile projects. Pantić holds a Master degree from the Architectural Association Design Research Lab (AADRL) in London, and the Faculty of Architecture, University of Belgrade, Serbia.


The Belgrade Design Week was the best design conference I have ever enjoyed – the specific spirit of the city in a kind of in between status, the rough tension which can still be felt ten years after the bombs, the pride and the looking for new orientation especially in the young generation – all this is giving the BDW a special flair far away from the current events of the global design circus. In addition the enthusiastic organizational team trying hardly but unsuccessfully to keep the program along the schedules, the informal exchange between the international speakers, the loss of any discipline, the parties on the river … what ever and how ever the interrelations between these aspects are working – it makes the BDW an unique, likeable, inspiring and productive event, I will never forget.
