Over the last few years, the global adoption of digital technologies have transformed the way designers are able to approach projects to incorporate sustainable practises and data-based decision making, creating extraordinary works of architectural art.
There is no denying the unique way individual techniques can meld together to create something conceptually and physically extraordinary and our Teulo Talks event line up features 4 exceptional individuals paving the way at the intersection of design, technology and fabrication.
Stephanie Chaltiel is a French architect and interior designer working with innovative techniques and natural materials offering unique designs for each project. She began her career in Mexico and French Guyana building by hand with local dwellers houses. After working for Bernard Tschumi in New York, OMA and Zaha Hadid she started her own practice. Her award winning projects and constructions or processes of construction tend to provoke contradictory opinions within the public, but with the support of the MuDD team, passionately investigate the social impact of new aesthetics and forms of architectural envelopes.
Oliver Thomas is a highly-regarded Architect, Computational Designer and Building Information Modelling specialist, who has helped to implement digital processes on some of the UK’s biggest and most high-profile projects. Olly harnesses his technical know-how and passionate enthusiasm about digitised construction and BIM – the process of creating and managing digital information about a built asset – to drive improved performance across all stages of the built-asset lifecycle.
He is deeply committed to workshopping cutting-edge ideas outside of formal practice, which he is exploring through global architecture collective, PIXEL.

Perry Kulper is an author, architect and Associate Professor of Architecture at the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. Prior to his arrival at the University, he was a Sci-Arc faculty member for 17 years as well as in visiting positions at the University of Pennsylvania and Arizona State University. Subsequent to his studies at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo (Bs Arch) and Columbia University (M Arch) he worked in the offices of Eisenman Robertson Architects, Robert A.M. Stern Architects and Venturi, Rauch and Scott Brown before moving to Los Angeles.
Perry’s approach to design questions the roles of representation while rethinking design methods typically implemented in the production of architecture. His work pushes the boundaries of the architecture realm towards a broader spectrum establishing a new cultural vision.
Michael Pryor is a multi-faceted designer and author currently utilising his expertise as a computational designer at Nike NXT | Innovation and as Design Director for DesignMorphine, one of the leading platforms for global design and software education. He has been involved in various major built or in construction works in the US, China, Dubai and Lebanon, and has been involved in various major built or in construction architectural works in the US, China, Dubai, and Lebanon and has worked at Trahan Architects, SOMA Architects, OLI Architecture, and [AY] Architecture on a range of architectural design projects ranging from museums, housing, restaurants, furniture, products, exhibits and prototypes. He was granted The New York Society of Architects Matthew W. Del Gaudio award for excellence in total design upon graduation from the New York Institute of Technology.
Design, technology and fabrication are powerful components of the architectural industry and are disrupting not only the profession, but also the design and build process itself. Such unexpected innovation is creating a more robust sense of intention in each and every project and process.
Collaboration partner is XLAM NZ and Australia.
