ZUBIN KHABAZI, Architect, Researcher and Writer, is the founding director of Laboratory of Algorithmic Architecture, morphogenesism. He studied Master of Emergent Technologies and Design (EmTech) at Architectural Association (AA) London, after graduation from IAUM with BSc and Master of Architecture (MArch) with Honors. His area of research is computational design and digital fabrication, focused on plastic materials and casting technologies. Beside being an experimental fabricator, he has taught and lectured in universities across UK, France and Iran, as well as AA Visiting Schools in Tehran and Lyon. He published couple of papers and books as well as e-publications of ‘Generative Algorithms’ series, under Rhino-Grasshopper platforms. He is the co-founder of CRAFT as an annual experimental collaborative project, focused on adaptive fabrication scenarios. Investigations of ‘Digital Casting’ in art and architecture via computation and (adaptive-) fabrication are his current fields of research as a PhD researcher at Singapore University of Technology and Design.
