Nataly Gattegno is a founding design partner of Future Cities Lab, an interdisciplinary design and research collaborative that has developed a range of award-winning projects exploring the intersections of design with advanced fabrication technologies, responsive building systems and urban space. Future Cities Lab is at the forefront of exploring how advanced technologies, social media and the internet of things will profoundly affect how we live, work, communicate and play in the future. Their approach to design and making, which has been described as “high performance craft”, is also deeply experiential, interactive and materially rich.

Nataly is currently an Associate Professor of Architecture and Chair of the Graduate program in Architecture at the CCA (California College of the Arts) in San Francisco. She has previously taught at UC Berkeley, the University of Michigan and the University of Virginia.

Nataly received a MA from Cambridge University, St. John’s College, UK. and a M.Arch from Princeton University.
