David completed his Masters in Architecture in 2010 at the University of Melbourne. Currently working on Australian Research Council supported projects in Digital Fabrication Technologies focusing on the realisation of parametric design systems and automated fabrication assemblies. Academic career also includes tutoring design and the use of parametric and other digital design tools at the University of Melbourne and RMIT. Currently running the FPS masters thesis studio investigating the use of digital and parametric design, analysis, feedback systems and mass customisation approaches utilizing flexible fabrication methods.
As an architect, artist and researcher, Stanislav Roudavski studies and designs technologically sustained places. Currently a Lecturer in Digital Architectural Design at the University of Melbourne, he holds degrees of MArch/MFA from the Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg (Russia), MSc CABD from the University of Strathclyde (UK) and PhD from the University of Cambridge (UK). Before arriving to Melbourne in 2009, Stanislav worked on research projects at the University of Cambridge and practiced in several European countries. His current interests include generative designing of complex architectural geometries, bioinspiration, virtual and augmented environments, place and performance studies, spatial narrative, practice-based research methodologies and participatory, distributed creativity.
Gwyllim Jahn studied at the University of Western Australia before completing his Masters of Architecture at RMIT in 2010. He tutors and conducts electives, workshops and studios at RMIT, Melbourne and Monash universities and currently works at LAB Architecture studio. Experiments and student work can be found via the leda atomicus.
Jas Johnston is the Digital Fabrication Facility Coordinator at the Faculty of Architecture Building and Planning, University of Melbourne. He also tutors, assists with design studios and facilitates workshops focused upon digital design techniques through the Experimental Design Lab and digital fabrication techniques through the FabLab. Jas is particularly interested in new forms of digital art and their interaction and enhancement of architecture.
