Profile

Robin is a structural engineer and designer working on the architecture of structural patterns. His doctoral and postdoctoral research journey through Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, ETH Zurich, University of Cambridge, and Princeton University led him to develop holistic digital design & construction processes, including grammatical generative design, constrained form optimization, automated robotic construction, and augmented craft, with applications focusing on spanning structures, like gridshells, shells, vaults, and floors. As an assistant professor at TU Delft, Robin is exploring topologically reconfigurable modular structures, where benefits lie in circular and automated construction, by creating and leveraging suitable design strategies, exploration algorithms, and construction technologies.

I am currently looking for a PhD student on the topic of design and construction of topologically reconfigurable modular structural systems! See job advert here.
