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.

Belgrade Design Week is a one-off – a unique set-up that is free from the corporate atmosphere that so often pervades other such events. The energy, optimism and warmth of Jovan and his team flows through every event – lectures, workshops, meals & drinks alike!   I’ve never been good at sitting in a dark lecture hall for more than an hour or so at a time but found myself doing three lectures back to back at Belgrade – such was the quality of speakers. Timetabling was crazy at times but at BDW everybody seems happy to ‘go with the flow’ – and has an even better time for doing so. The City of Belgrade should be very proud of this gem!
