Ernesto Pastore is an Italian-Salvadorian architect and computational designer.
His main interests involve experimenting with novel digital design methods and exploring new materials and fabrication processes, often merging traditional techniques with emerging technologies.
His work is greatly inspired by the growth processes and efficiencies found in nature which results in highly sculptural, yet functional designs.
In addition to his artistic work, his multidisciplinary practice focuses on implementing holistic designs that maximize material and energy use and integrate human habitats and products as much as possible with the environment.
He works on commissions to private clients and provides services to companies seeking solutions that involve a computational approach to design.
Winner of various awards, Ernesto’s work has been featured at renowned international exhibitions in cities such as New York, London and Milan and has been published by leading design websites and magazines.
