Tom Kovac / Reiner Zettl / Matias del Campo

Architects of Design


It was very interesting to hear the participation of these 3 important Architects in The Future of Making panel, discussing the experiences between RMIT University and the Institute of Architecture at the Angewandte working with projects for the Alessi brand.

Tom Kovac, Australian architect of Slovenian origin, founded Kovac Architecture in 1991, earned a master’s degree in architecture in 2001 at RMIT University, where he currently teaches, and he performs a lot of conferences in the United States, Japan and Europe.

Reiner Zettl, art historian and professor at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, has exhibits of his own at the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto; International Design Center, Nagoya; and the Hara Museum, Tokyo. He recently took part in the XII Biennial of Austria with Austrian pavilion at this event.

Matias del Campo graduated with honors from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria. In 2003 he co-founded SPAN Architects in Vienna, along with Sandra Manninger. He currently serves as Associate Professor of Architecture at Taubman College, University of Michigan, where he is studying the robotic manufacturing processes in regards to formal and tectonic architectural trends.

It was fortunate that they had enough time after their presentation to exchange comments regarding their work and their experiences with Mexico.
