Christian Giordano is the most innovative person in the architecture field today. A visionary who is radically changing the industry through tech-first innovation, he has been highlighted as one of Building Design + Construction’s “40 Under 40” Class of 2013.
Driven by a quest for learning with 25+ years of experience, Christian – The “Anti-Architect” – is reimagining the building industry with a progressive approach as president and co-owner of Mancini Duffy, an NYC-based architecture and design firm.
To redefine Mancini as a top design firm, Christian has sparked industry‐wide change drawing inspiration from some of the tech-forward companies Mancini works with—like Peloton, Disney, Verizon, and Soho House — focusing on technology that can propel the world of design forward. He launched a research & development incubator – dubbed the Design Lab – which brings together designers, technologists, and clients to leverage technologies like VR, 3D Printing, Drones, Generative Design, and AI to break barriers limiting design capabilities.
In 2020, Christian completely revolutionized the design process as the inventor of the patent-pending The Toolbelt, a software suite that allows users to explore and manipulate 3D models collaboratively to make decisions together.
In 2021, he launched “The Anti-Architect Podcast” to share his futurist approach to design and architecture.
