Alan Eskildsen M.Sc. ITECH | B.Arch.

Alan Eskildsen is computational designer with a Master of Science in Integrative Technologies and Architectural Design Research by the University of Stuttgart, Germany (M.Sc. ITECH). He has a background in architecture (5 year B.Arch) and studies in Landscape Architecture at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia.

He has participated in a varied set of approaches, from architectural projects in the Americas, Europe, and the Middle East, to cutting-edge research in academic institutions, interior design and product design with a high focus on design technology and the implementation of computational processes.

He has fulfilled computational design to middle-management roles in LAVA: Laboratory for Visionary Architecture, Michan Architecture and Unidad de Protocolos. In 2019 he co-founded the Office of Projects and Practice in Architecture, which carries out architectural design projects in Mexico. His latest research projects, Elastool and Curve-Fit, showcase advancements in deployable component structures and the use of natural materials. He has assisted in various research projects at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) and the Cluster of Excellence Computational Design and Construction for Architecture (IntCDC) led by Prof. Achim Menges.

Through his work, Alan seeks to operate at the intersection of the built environment, materially informed design, fabrication technologies, and advanced geometry. He thrives in the implementation of multi-disciplinary approaches and aims for the advancement of innovative computational processes in the AEC industry.
