Master of Advanced Studies ETH in Architecture and Digital Fabrication
Mathias Bernhard is an architect with profound specialization in computational design, digital fabrication, and information technology. In particular, he is interested in how artefacts can be encoded, made machine-readable, and digitally operational. His research focuses on how the increasingly ubiquitous availability of data and computational power influences the design process and how different methods of artificial intelligence, machine learning or evolutionary strategies can be employed in the development of our built environment.
Mathias Bernhard studied architecture at EPF Lausanne and ETH Zurich, specialized in computational design and digital fabrication with an MAS in CAAD and finished his doctoral thesis at the intersection of architecture and computer graphics in 2019. In 2015, he joined the DBT group and in 2016 the MAS dfab team of tutors
