Vlad studied architecture in Iasi, Lisbon and in London at the The Bartlett, UCL, where he was awarded a MSc. in Adaptive Architecture & Computation and a Certificate in Advanced Architectural Research. Vlad’s ongoing research focuses on the integration of computation, science and technology in the architectural design process – involving generative computational methods, digital fabrication techniques and interactive design.
After taking part in the Constructing Realities Exhibition at the ARUP Phase2 Gallery, London in summer 2010, Vlad has recently exhibited his project ‘Minimal Complexity’, the winner of the Tex-Fab’s REPEAT : Digital Fabrication Competition, in Houston in February 2011. He has also presented his paper entitled ‘Minimal Surfaces as Self-Organising Systems’ at the ACADIA Conference at the Cooper Union in New York in October 2010 and has been part of the FABRICATE Conference and Publication in London, April 2011.
Vlad has been with Surface since 2009 where he has been intrinsic to the development of a range of projects and is currently working on UEL Reception Pavilion and Myplace. Alongside his professional work he teaches within the Embodied & Embedded Technologies and Morphogenetic Programming modules of the MSc. AAC at the Bartlett, UCL.
