Architect, new media design : Ignazio Mottola

An architect who graduated from the Milan Polytechnical Institute in 1987, he rounded off his training in Munich and Rome, where he worked with the Purini Thermes firm. In 1991, he set up in Paris, mainly working with the Catherine Furet and Gilles Bouchez agencies.

In 1994, thanks to his expertise in the field of digital design, he worked for the CD-ROM publisher Montparnasse Multimédia, one of the benchmark digital creation studios in the world at the time. His works, "Musée d'Orsay", "Cosmos", "XXéme siècle" and "Histoire de France", successes with the general public and critics alike, were awarded several prizes in France and abroad.

In 2001, he worked with Realviz, and specialised in 3D visualisation for the Web. In 2004, he was appointed project manager, for the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle (ENSCI / Les Ateliers), of CHIPS, a European research project based on new hybrid digital products and services and on interactive architecture.
At the same time, he designed geolocation services for mobile telephony with the start-up Newtgames.
He currently works with various world-class architects and designers: Jean Nouvel, Christian de Portzamparc, Paco Rabanne and Groupe 6 Architectes have already entrusted him the task of illustrating their projects.

He also works on responsive architecture concepts, particularly on the creation of interactive boutiques for a prestigious fashion designer.
His " la Machine de Lombroso " installation was exhibited during Nuit blanche 2005 in Paris: it is also published on " Rhizome " and " we make money not art ".
A second interactive installation, " Viso ", will be exhibited in the Town Hall of the 4th arrondissement during Nuit blanche 2007.
