My name is Zachary Mollica. I am a Canadian architect and maker whose work focuses on the integration of innovative digital methods and tools alongside traditional craft knowledge and natural materials. Currently I work full time as a studio tutor for the Architectural Association’s Design + Make programme – working with our team to design and produce ambitious architectural constructs.
My father and grandfather, both carpenters, involved me in their work from an early age. Before architecture school I studied liberal arts and physics. After graduating I worked for design practices in Amsterdam, Lunenburg, Toronto and Vancouver. In 2014 I arrived in Hooke Park. Embedded within an environment that merges campsite, hi-tech workshop and design studio, the four years since have provided me the opportunity to engage with my surrounds in a wholly new way
Variety of experience is my strongest trait – I like to work on a bit of everything.
