Celestino Soddu was born in S. Maurizio di Brunate, Como (Italy) in 1945.

He obtained his University Master Degree at Rome University “La Sapienza” in 1970.

In the same year he passed the State Examination for Professional Architects and Engineering Register.

 

He is registered architect since 1971. His activity is in the fields of architecture, town design and architectural object design.

His offices are in Pigra (Como), in Serramanna (Cagliari) and in Rome and his professional activity was established in 1971.

He made architecture and town design projects realized in Italy (1972-2007) and Somalia (in 1984-1989).  In the last years, he made visionary architecture projects for Chicago, New York, Washington DC,  Los Angeles, Rome, Tel Aviv, Milan, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing,Tianjin, Delhi.

 

Actual activities

He teaches in Italian Universities since 1971.

He is professor of Architectural Design at Politecnico di Milano University, Faculty of Engineering-Architecture, Italy.  His actual teaching is  “Generative Architectural Design” at the 5th year (Master degree). He teached also “Design Studio Lab” at the Master in Building Engineering (EnglishlLanguage teaching).

In 1997 he founded and, at present, he is the director of the Generative Design Lab at the Department of Architecture and Planning of the Milan Polytechnic University. The topic of this Lab is approaching the most advanced possibilities in the topic of architectural design and of town identity design.

In 2002 he had funds from European Community for establishing mutual cultural and business relations between Europe and China and for enlarging the activity of his Generative Design Lab with other Generative Design Labs in Europe (Kassel and Eindhoven) and in China (Shanghai and Tianjin). The exchange activities in China involve, at present, universities and research centers of Xi’an, Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Changsha, Hong Kong and Macau.

 

Background and advanced researches

Beginning from 1979, his research is about the dynamic evolution of the artificial systems complexity and image, designing sequences of original software to emulate and control architectural, environmental and industrial design processes and to improve the manufacturing industrial processes.

The last versions of these original software programs are used for Architecture Design professional and research activities.

In 1984 and 1985 he made his first series of lectures in USA and Canada for presenting the possibility of computers in Architectural design (Waterloo University. Concordia University. in Montreal, Penn State University.) and, as expert of the Italian Foreign Office, he worked in Somalia teaching and designing architectures.

In 1986 he designed the first original software to control the dynamic evolution of the genius loci of artificial environments and to create Generative Identity Codes for fitting recognizability and environment harmony. 

Beginning from 1992 his researches was about the design of species, the design of the morph genetic codes of architecture and artificial industrial objects and about the management and the innovation of the manufacturing processes.

Every his architectural project, realized like AI/AL generative software, can generate a sequence of different architectures/environments characterized by the same genius loci. With this tool it is possible to evaluate the quality of the incoming architectural events during the increasing complexity of design processes. He used this generative software in designing the evolution of some town environments in front of the need to preserve the identity of particular genius loci.

He designed original software also in the field of representation, (his patent of 360 degree anamorphic technical representation is used in advanced installations) and in the field of 3D creative interpretation of 2D artwork.

In Industrial design, his generative projects are useful devices to manage and control the quality and the complexity of the new industrial products. These projects are able to generate and endless sequence of different 3dmodels of industrial objects, all unique and unrepeatable, but all belonging to the same design concept and to the same functional requests. It is the industrial production of different and unrepeatable objects enhancing the brand recognizability.

He has his Internet site beginning from 1995 (www.generativedesign.com and www.soddu.it ) where it is possible to find his researches and the works of his students. Each student of his courses and of the final degree master thesis update his work weekly using a personal home page in the site. Now in this Internet site it is possible to look at one thousand of home pages of students (Italian and foreign students of his workshops) and one hundred of theses for the final master degree in Politecnico di Milano University made with his supervision.

 

1991-2000. He presented his design researches and projects in International Conferences and in workshops in Italy and also in other countries: Oxford, (UK) 1991, Lausanne (Swiss) 1991, Stockholm (Sweden) 1992, Montreal (Canada) 1992, Zurich (Swiss) 1993, Singapore 1993, Neuchatel (Swiss) 1993, Wien (Austria) 1993, Istanbul (Turkey) 1994, Freiburg (Germany) 1995, Sheffield (UK) 1995, Helsinki (Fin) 1997, Stockholm (Sweden) 1997, Lancaster (UK) 1998, Edinburgh (UK) 1999, Brussels (Belgium) 1999, Kassel (Germany) 2000, Weimar  (Germany) 2000, Schwabish Gmuend  (Germany) 2000 , Las Vegas (US) 2000, Portland (US) 2000, Seattle (US) 2000.

 

Beginning in 1998 he is the chair and organizes, with his Generative Design Lab, the annual International Generative Art Conference (from GA’98 since GA2007, the 10th GA event) at the Milan Polytechnic University with the participation of researchers from UK, Germany, Finland, USA, Israel, Canada, France, Romania, Belgium, Sweden, Netherlands, Japan, Hong Kong, New Zeeland, Australia, Spain, Sweden, Brazil, Peru’, India, Indonesia, Slovenia, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, Latvia, Romania, Switzerland, Poland, Portugal, Lebanon, Corea, Thailand, Mexico,  Peru’, and Italy. The GA conference has its website: http://www.generativeart.com

 

In 2001, as Professorial Research Fellow at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, he improved his generative software to realize, as direct output, an endless sequence of unique and unrepeatable physical objects made by rapid prototyping devices.

 

In 2001 he made lectures in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, San Francisco, Santa Fe, Virginia Tech. State University, New York, Boston, Kassel, Ivrea, Rome, Schwebish Gmuend, Copenhagen and Milan.

In 2001 he presented his last works in a sequence of exhibitions in Rome, Milan, Germany.

In February-March 2002 he presented his generative projects and artworks in the exhibition “Generative Art, Visionary Variations by Celestino Soddu”, at Hong Kong Museum, Visual Art Centre and, in May 2002, at MF Gallery, Los Angeles, US, giving lectures to the local Universities.

In February-April 2003 he presented his generative projects in exhibitions at IDB Cultural Center, Washington DC, at Pacific Design Center, Westweek 2003, Los Angeles, at Pontificia Universitad Catolica del Peru’, Lima.

In March 2004 he presented his architecture projects in Rome, at 1st Faculty of Architecture of University of Rome La Sapienza, in April 2004 at the Italian Embassy in Beijing, in June 2004 he presented his architecture projects of Milan at the International Finance Center of Hong Kong.and, in May 2005 at the Commerce Chambre in Milan.
