Architect and design thinker, Alisa Andrasek is working on the convergence of design, computer science and exponential technologies to address architecture in a context of planetary challenges. An award-winning design leader with over two decades of experience in working across disciplines and geographies (NY/London/Melbourne) - bridging between design, technology and ecology, she is bringing complexity science, AI and robotics to the forefront of architecture, cities and construction. The founder of Biothing, an award-winning design laboratory; a partner of Bloom Games; and co-founder of AI Build, Andrasek is a Professor of Design Innovation at RMIT, prior to which she directed an award-winning program in advanced architectural design at UCL in London and Wonderlab research. Recently, she founded AIARCH developing an AI-driven metaverse platform at the intersection of the physical and digital, targeting integrative solutions for the built environment as an ecology of complex systems and AI-enhanced human design. Her work has been featured in over 70 publications, and 50 exhibitions worldwide, with recent City X at the Venice Biennale, Coder Le Monde at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and the design for the Croatian National Pavilion in Venice, featuring one of the world’s largest robotically printed structures.
