Filippo and Marc, both coordinating one of UNStudio’s Knowledge Platforms, will talk about their approach on new technologies, materials and fabrication techniques. Through a series of examples out of projects, research-consortia and collaborations with the building industry, a series of new technologies are highlighted (such as flexible moulds, building integrated Photovoltaics and new material technologies such as bio-composites and translucent concrete). Marc is an associate architect at UNStudio, Amsterdam. Parallel to running projects, he leads the Smart Parameter Platform, the office’s knowledge platform for design computing, digital fabrication and Building Information Modeling. In addition, he is an educator in the field of computational design. Filippo also works at UNStudio and is an experienced professional with a varied education background that includes engineering, architecture and art.
