Steffen will talk about his current interests, in particular about the work undertaken at Herzog & de Meuron as Head of the Digital Technologies Department (DT). Working with people specialising in the overlapping fields of CAD, BIM, computer graphics, visual arts, programming and digital fabrication DT strives to make drawing, modeling and building with digital tools an integral part of the workflow. Steffen will elaborate upon the latest digital technologies and traditional craft simultaneously to support, reflect and help to innovate the creative development at Herzog & de Meuron. He also conducts a workshop with the Architectural Aesthetic Practice and Advanced Architectural Design specialisations with Hans-Peter Nünning.
