We spend our days translating the needs of dynamic, continuously changing inhabitants; navigating environmental, social and economic challenges, and taking hold of ever evolving tools to carve spaces out of space.
9AM - 10AM
Ramon Elias Weber is a research assistant at the MIT Media Lab in the Mediated Matter Group. He previously studied at the ITECH Master Studio, University of Stuttgart where he was working for Prof. Achim Menges at the ICD, Prof. Jan Knippers at the ITKE and was a designer at FibR. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from ETH Zurich where he worked for Prof. Dr. Philippe Block in the Block Research Group as a student research assistant. After graduating he worked for Zaha Hadid Architects in London, where he was involved in projects across all scales and design research in the inhouse ZHA|CODE research group.
Ramon will talk about his research projects around digital fabrication and experimental design (...from Zaha Hadid Architects to the Mediated Matter Group). Further showing how we are scaling up generative design methods at MIT and combining them with structural and environmental simulation to analyze
larger questions in the built environment - towards low carbon and more sustainable architecture.
10AM - 11AM:
Paul Clemens Bart
Paul Clemens Bart is a German architect, designer, and educator, based in Brooklyn NYC.
Paul is founding partner of spatial innovation studio URBAN BETA and the architecture office BART//BRATKE.
Founded as an collaborative platform, the studio fosters new models of participatory approaches to co-design in academic and professional frameworks - both virtual and physical - with a focus on the development of adaptable and transformative architecture systems.
His ongoing research and design ambitions are focused on the democratization of emergent technologies and digital methodologies for their application in performance-orientated, mobile and ecological building systems.
He has over 10 years of industry experience in leading design positions at renowned architectural offices such as Zaha Hadid Architects, LAVA Asia Pacific and Berlin, the German Institute for Science and Technology Singapore and currently as Project Leader with BIG NYC.
Paul holds a MSc (Dipl. Ing. Univ. eqv.) in Architecture from Technical University of Munich and a MArch from the Architectural Association’s Design Research Lab in London.
He is actively engaged in the profession's discourse, teaching recurring studios at the UCL Bartlett B-Pro, the Architectural Association London and the MIT SA+P. In 2018, Paul received a visiting professorship at the Universidad Internacional SEK in Quito.
Paul is a recurring guest lecturer and critic at renowned universities such as Cooper Union NYC, University of Innsbruck i.sd, The Bartlett UCL, Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture Paris, TUM and the University of East London. He has been an invited speaker at international congresses such as the DETAIL Congress for Transformation and the Ars Electronica in Linz and jury member for the Katerva Awards and the Design That Educates Awards.
His award-winning projects have been part of international exhibitions such as the Venice Architecture Biennale, the IAA Frankfurt and the Future Fest London. His work has been widely published in the trade press and media, such as WIRED Magazine, the Financial Times and DETAIL Magazine.
Space on Demand - Predictive Planning for Transformative Architecture
Architectural Design targets mainly humans, the lives of whom are dynamic and continuously changing. Consequently, the conventional design methodologies that deal with buildings as static entities do not always represent the proper method to generate user-friendly buildings.
Looking at the Urban Beta methodology that is much more related to product design and start-up culture than classical architecture. Paul will look at ways to invent your own ecosystem in architecture and business and how they intertwine research with practice. This will be a good way to learn more about entrepreneurship and business models. Urban Beta philosophy feel that it is
very important today to rethink the discipline, the way we have to rethink our linear economy today.
