Professor Carlo Ratti teaches at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he directs the Senseable City Lab, and is a founding partner of the international design office Carlo Ratti Associati.
Ratti’s work has been exhibited worldwide and two of his best known projects have been included by TIME Magazine in the list of the ‘Best Inventions of the Year’.
Esquire Magazine has featured him in the "Best and Brightest" list and also Wired Magazine in the “Smart List." Blueprint Magazine included him among the "25 People who will Change the World of Design," and Fast Company named him as one of the "50 Most Influential Designers in America."
Ratti thinks and speaks at a fast pace, probably due to the diversity of worlds he’s constantly in.
It was a pleasure to speak to Carlo and listen to his ideas and intentions for the Porto Design Biennale 2021.
