Ashley is Senior Engineer (Computational Design) at the IStructE. He coordinates the development and application of computational methods in structural design. His experience in the delivery of architecturally led structural design encourages him to automate repetitive tasks in the pursuit of creative problem solving – developing expertise incomputational design, software design, electronics and additive manufacturing.
Philippe Block is Professor at the Institute of Technology in Architecture at ETH Zurich, where he co-directs the Block Research Group (BRG). Research at the BRG focuses on computational form finding, optimisation and construction of curved surface structures, specialising in unreinforced masonry vaults and concrete shells. BRG researchers develop innovative structurally informed bespoke prefabrication strategies and novel construction paradigms employing digital fabrication.
Juney is a lecturer and postdoctoral researcher at the Block Research Group of ETH Zurich. He has Master of Architecture and Master of Structural Engineering degrees from MIT, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from UC Berkeley. His research interests include graphic statics, computational geometry, algorithmic design and geometry-based structural form-finding methods and sustainable materials and construction.
