We are happy to announce the second Perth Computational Design Group event, with two excellent speakers doing some amazing things!
Erica Brett - Woods Bagot (SUPERSPACE)
Erica Brett is Design Researcher with the SUPERSPACE team at Woods Bagot, where she specializes in analysis-driven design of workplace interiors. Her current projects are in developing and utilizing computational tools to evaluate and inform workplace design. Her past experience includes: creating bespoke computer applications for spatial data visualization, parametric model manipulation/fabrication, and browser-based scripting environments, as well as generative design and user-centered design research.
Erica holds an M.Arch from the University of California, Berkeley, and a BS in Architectural Design and a minor in Computer Science from Stanford University.
Charlie Boman - Roland Snooks Studio
Charlie Boman is graduate architect at Roland Snooks Studios and a research assistant and sessional tutor at RMIT.
Studio Roland Snooks explores the complexity of the contemporary social and natural world through the creation of objects, installations, public art and architectural projects. This work draws on an understanding of the underlying processes of formation that give rise to these contemporary conditions. The studio redeploys these processes through algorithmic techniques in the creation of highly detailed and intricate forms.
At RMIT, Charlie is involved in a body of research that explores advanced manufacturing processes. such as innovative ways of 3D printing. Charlie is currently researching cmt welding as a means of metal printing.
