Achim Menges
Professor, Institute for Computational Design and Construction
Stuttgart University, Germany

The first Dean's public lecture for the year, presented by Professor Achim Menges, will focus on the development of integral design processes at the intersection of morphogenetic design computation, biomimetic engineering and robotic fabrication that enables a highly articulated, performative built environment.

Achim Menges is a registered architect in Frankfurt and professor at Stuttgart University, where he founded the Institute for Computational Design. Currently he also is Visiting Professor in Architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. He graduated with honours from the AA School of Architecture where he subsequently taught as Studio Master of the Emergent Technologies and Design Graduate Program and as Unit Master in the AA Diploma School.

His projects and design research work have received various international awards. They have been published and exhibited worldwide, and form part of several renowned museum collections, among others, the permanent collection of the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
