I’m a researcher interested in two main themes: how technology influences architecture, and how architecture influences people.
I originally studied architecture in New Zealand and later did a PhD in computational design at RMIT University in Australia. I now live in New York and work as a researcher for Hassell. Previously I was the Director of Research at WeWork, and before that, I was a senior researcher at CASE and spent seven years moonlighting as part of the design team completing Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Família. I have written for a number of publications, including Architect Magazine, AD, and ArchDaily. My research has been featured in magazines such as Wired, Fast Company, and The Harvard Business Review.
These are three articles I’ve written recently:
- Can Algorithms Design Buildings?
- How Coworking Spaces Affect Employees Professional Identities
Harvard Business Review
- What ‘The Future of The Professions’ Reveals About The Future of Architecture
