Ognjen Graovac

My focus is on generative design in architecture as well as extending our tools and capabilities through collaboration with algorithms and technology. My daily job is based on creating algorithms that can solve various design and engineering problems in architecture through parametric and computational design, as well as different simulation and optimization techniques. 

I am currently a PhD student at the Faculty of Architecture in Belgrade. My research topic is based on 3D Graphic Statics and developing new algorithms for it (a topic that Block Reseacrch Group from ETH is also exploring).

During 2019. I was a Inspireli finalist.
