 rcat juliaschelegel_portrait

Dr. Julia D. Schlegel has worked in different countries in architecture, as well as in visualization, and holds a degree as a Diplom Ingenieur from Germany and a PhD from Norway. Being interested in the processes of architectural practice Schlegel conducted an industrial PhD in collaboration with AHO and Snøhetta, the first industrial PhD in the humanities in Norway completed in 2015. Her main research interests concern the organizational and communicational aspects of architectural practice, as well as the changing dynamics of the architectural profession and its position in and connection to society. How we cooperate to design and create architecture and how we communicate and interact with the people we design for is an ongoing topic of her research. The title of her PhD thesis is "The Gap between Design and Vision – Investigating the impact of high-end visualization on architectural practice". She is now director of research at Snøhetta.

MatteoLomaglio portrait

Matteo Lomaglio received his bachelor degree in architecture at Politecnico di Milano and his master degree in architecture at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design in 2017. During his studies he joind the RCAT | ACDL studio where he developed the Project Oslo Convergence, which received the Oslo research award 2017.  He also collaborated in 2016 with Noumena I Barcelona  and IAAC, the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, as well as studying at ETSAB UPC. His diploma work "Encoded Ecologies of The Venetian Lagoon" pursued a new  computational approach to dynamic ecosystems and multiscalar design through the integration of environmental data and robotic technologies. He is now enroled in the master of advanced studies program in Architecture and Digital Fabrication at the ETH Zurich.

acdl eskillandet

Eskil Ravnangar Landet received his Master of Architecture degree at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design in 2016. During his studies, he specialized in parametric design and VR in the context of the Advanced Computational Design Laboratory. Eskil’s master project Sandvika Intervention focused on the question of urban renewal through a key project and was developed in grasshopper. VR played a critical role in the design process. His interest spans from furniture design to area planning. Eskil is currently employed at Norconsult, where he continues to implement both parametric and VR workflows in projects of all scales.

acdl sigurgbjerge

Sigurd Gjesti Berge received his Master of Architecture degree at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design in 2016. He specialized in Advanced Computational Design, parametric architecture and wooden constructions. In his diploma project he explored the possibilities of close interdisciplinary work and parametric design in kinetic architecture by establishing a cantilevered viewing platform on the end of a nature trail in Vågsøy, Sogn og Fjordane. Other projects range from mixed program urban timber constructions to planning and design. He currently works as an architect at Norconsult, where he is involved in work ranging from large multidisciplinary railway projects to small-scale housing projects.

JoakimHoen portrait

Joakim Wiig Hoen is a Norwegian architect educated at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) and the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO) where he received his master’s degree in architecture. Previously he worked at the architectural offices of Helen & Hard, Eriksen Skajaa and Snøhetta in Oslo. Since 2012 he teaches at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design and opened his own practice, Hoen Arkitektur, in 2013. These positions enable him to pursue his interests in the intersection between architecture, design and digital technologies, through both practice and academia. He is now a partner in Void, a computational design studio that works at the intersection between design, architecture, art and technology.
