Ghigo Di Tommaso was trained as an architect in Florence, where he picked up the tools of the trade while engaging directly with the city's heritage and feeding a strong interest in urban history and theory. Professional degree and licensure in hand, he moved to Barcelona to become part of its thriving design community. There he joined the debate on the on-going transformation of the city and committed himself to the creation of beautiful public architecture.
For several years he conducted urban design research at the Escuela Tècnica Superior de Arquitectura de Barcelona (EtsaB), while also working with prominent Catalan architects on numerous award-winning projects from conception to construction completion.
In 2009 he entered the EtsaB doctoral program in architectural design, in 2010-2011 he was visiting scholar at the UC Berkeley College of Environmental Design, and in 2011-2012 adjunct faculty at the Universitat Ramon LLull. In late 2012, he relocated to the Bay Area to become a member of Rebar Art & design Studio. Since 2014, he is devoting his passion for design and his skills to Gehl Studio, while collaborating with the UC Berkeley College of Environmental Design, where he teaches, conducts research, and leads the Disc program.
