I am a principal of emerging architecture studio, Mihaly Slocombe. I’m also a director of ArchiTeam, and teach at both the University of Melbourne and RMIT. I’m a father, rookie yogi, casual skateboarder and enthusiastic chess player.

What’s with the name?

Panfilo is shorthand for Via Panfilo Castaldi, the street where my wife and I lived in Milan for much of 2010 and where the idea for this blog originated.

Thus Panfilo is an idea born out of the curiosity and excitement of travel, and perpetuated beyond my return home to Melbourne. It recognises that while I am passionate about the culture, practice and business of architecture, there is rarely an opportunity to invest myself more critically in the things I see, read and experience. This blog is that opportunity.
