Data driven design/computation in Architecture, Urban, Product Design
Since his Master’s Degree at TU Deft, Netherlands, Matthew’s fascination in architecture focused on researching and experimenting on the convergence between material and the digital through the use of emergent computational tools and digital fabrication methods.
He believes that only through clear dialogue between form, material and production process can a designer achieve a smart solution. With such process the architect is no longer a consumer of technology but is an agent of innovation, pushing the potentials of architecture.
At the moment he is interested in using open data and GIS and simulations in urban design.
Having said that, we have to constantly analyse and redefine how such innovations can be used for the greater good; to protect and uplift the human body and spirit.
