  • Paolo Zaide is an architect and academic working across the fields of architecture and curating. Paolo’s research interests concern the twenty-first-century metropolis and the complex systems that shape our relationships to space and our built environment. He is a PhD candidate in the School of Architecture at the Royal College of Art, where he focuses on architectural design strategies for floodzone settlements. Central to his practice is a fascination with small-scale/big-impact in critical design practice; his work ranges from designing the material artefact to experiences at an architectural scale.
