Daniel Cardoso LlachAssociate Professorat Carnegie Mellon University
Daniel Cardoso Llach is an interdisciplinary scholar and researcher bringing together methods from computation, science and technology studies, and history to investigate how digital technologies restructure architectural work, and the notion of design itself. He is associate professor in the School of Architecture at Carnegie Mellon University, where he chairs the Master of Science in Computational Design and codirects the Computational Design Laboratory (CodeLab). His book Builders of the Vision: Software and the Imagination of Design (Routledge 2015) examines the intellectual history of computer-aided design technologies and traces critically their architectural repercussions. He is co-editor of Other Computations: Digital Technologies for Architecture from the Global South — a special issue exploring histories and contemporary expressions of computational design from southern contexts — and of the Design, Technology and Society book series. Supported by grants from the Graham Foundation and the Canadian Social Science and Humanities Research Council he is the lead curator of a series of exhibitions examining the origins of computational design practices, and reimagining their future. His research has been published in journals including Digital Creativity, Architectural Research Quarterly (ARQ), Design Issues, and URBAN OMNIBUS, among others, and in edited collections including The Active Image: Architecture and Engineering in the Age of Modeling (Springer, 2018), and DigitalSTS: A Handbook and a Fieldguide (Princeton 2019).
