Gennaro Senatore is an EngD researcher at the University College London and design consultant at Expedition Engineering specialized in computational methods. He has applied the knowledge gained from his academic training to developing cutting-edge software for interactive real time physics (PushMePullMe) and innovative design concepts/methodology for the built environment such as adaptive building structures for whole life energy savings. Gennaro is actively researching in the domain of adaptive building structures, computational physics and multi-objective optimization.
Ollie Palmer is a designer and artist. He a collaborator with Open_H2O and Protei (open source projects developing oceanic technologies). He has travelled around the world, hitchhiked across Iceland, taught I.T. in the depths of the Amazon and sometimes plays with ants. He is a tutor in the Interactive Architecture Workshop at the Bartlett School of Architecture UCL and is a Getty Images contributing photographer.
Daniel Piker is the creator and developer of Kangaroo, a physics engine for Grasshopper3D. He currently works with the Smart Geometry Group (SMG) at Foster and Partners. He has worked at Arup’s Advanced Geometry Unit (AGU), the Norman Foster/Jean Nouvel collaboration, MUF architecture/art and TonkinLiu architects.
Arthur Mamou-Mani is a U.K. registered Architect, a unit master of Diploma Studio 10 at the University of Westminster and a Grasshopper 3D tutor for Simply Rhino ltd. He has worked for Atelier Jean Nouvel, Zaha Hadid Architects and Proctor and Matthews Architects. He has taught parametric design tools as well as environmental and structural simulation at London Metropolitan University and has led digital design workshops at the FILE Sao Paulo, Tel Aviv University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm as well as in diploma and intermediate school at the Architectural Association School of Architecture. He graduated from the AA in 2008.
