Stefano Andreani is a licensed architectural engineer and educator interested in innovative and transformative design research methods and solutions for the understanding and design of human-centered built environments. Pursuing his research at the intersection of technologically-augmented design, multi-faceted urban systems and processes, and enhanced human experiences, he explores alternative methodologies and develops novel strategies for the study and design of interactive, engaging and responsive spaces, systems, artifacts, and ultimately experiences for a positive impact on society. Andreani is a Lecturer in Architecture and a Research Associate at the Graduate School of Design of Harvard University and the Project Manager of the Harvard Responsive Environments and Artifacts Lab (REAL). Drawing on his research at Harvard, he also practices as Head of INVIVIA Europe at INVIVIA Inc., a global architectural design, user experience and design research studio.
Andreani lectured, published, and exhibited internationally in numerous venues. He received a Master in Design Technology from Harvard GSD, pursuing research within the Material Systems and Processes Group on the informed deployment of computational design and robotic fabrication methods for novel building systems. He also received a Master in Architectural Engineering and a Bachelor in Civil Engineering from the University of Perugia, where he served as a Lecturer in Architectural Technology.
