The Architect's Sourcebook, released June 15th, Available Here ->

Stanislas Chaillou is an architect, designer and AI-researcher

...working today at Rayon. His practice, publications, teaching and exhibits tackle the back-and-forth between geometry, artificial intelligence (AI) and culture. Trained both as an architect and an applied-AI researcher at Harvard and EPFL, Stanislas' interests lie in the weaving of design and computation.

His recent work focuses on Semanticism, a theory placing the encounter of Design and AI at the intersection of Semantics and creative Machine Learning.

Stanislas is today the co-founder of Rayon, a Paris-based startup building the next generation of space design tools. Through its collaborative, online platform, Rayon aspires to provide an updated toolset to the "architecture of the 90%".

Previously, Stanislas worked as an Architect & Senior Data Scientist at Spacemaker’s R&D department, and as a Machine Learning Engineer at Helix and Stanislas also taught generative AI at the architecture school IAAC, in Barcelona.
