Program Chair, MS.Arch Urban Design

I'm involved in research and projects that stem from a background in digital processes, parametric modeling, BIM, and digital fabrication. This technological background is coupled with a belief that it is our responsibility, as architects, to be concerned with the entire built and natural environment. The interest is in whether technology, in the form of computational design and fabrication processes, can lead to sustainable and ecologically responsive systems with the aid of biomimetics; leading to new architectural and urban paradigms for sustainable environments, especially in arid regions.
