Bio & Resume

A Paris native, Stanislas received his undergraduate degree in Architecture at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne, and his Master in Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Focusing his practice around Architecture and Artificial Intelligence, he believes in the necessary integration of both disciplines to change our built environment.

Stanislas works today as an Architect & Data Scientist at Spacemaker’s R&D department. He is in charge of developing AI research projects, to assist and enhance architectural conception.

He recently curated the exhibit “AI & Architecture” at the Arsenal Pavilion in Paris. Stanislas also published in a variety of reviews and platforms, among which are ARCH+, the Harvard Real Estate Review , the Veolia FACTS Reports, Towards Data Science, Archdaily, Archinect, and others.

Stanislas has lectured widely, at Harvard, the MIT Media Lab, the Sorbonne University, ETHZ, EPFL, l’Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées and others. He has given public conferences at the Moniteur Innovation Day, the DKT Conference, the DigitalFUTURES World Conference, and at the Pavillon de l’Arsenal in Paris.

Stanislas was awarded two American Architecture Prizes (2017) and the Architecture Masterprize (2018). He also received the 2018 ZGF scholarship for his past architectural work. He is a Fulbright scholar, an Arthur Sachs Fellow and Jean Gaillard Fellow at Harvard University.
