arbitrariness and then how could one continue? In geometry, one always finds a circular argument that brings things together again, providing direction and flexibility. Thus in this context, for me coding does not only emphasize on this relationship among its parts but also enables the potential for a very high complexity of the whole that can be controlled by the designer.”
David Mrugala is a practicing architect. He was born and educated in Germany at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology where he received his Dipl.Ing. in architecture. For the last eight years he is living and working in Asia, among others in India, Thailand and since 2014 in Korea. He works in a multidisciplinary academic environment with a particular interest in generative processes that not only aim for visual representations but also can be applied in responsive and interactive environments. Additionally, he is pursuing his PhD at the Seoul National University in the area of responsive architecture. His research focus lies on the notion of “quiet architecture” aiming to confront the common misconception of architecture as a hollow shell, regarded mostly for its inefficient barrier, unless it is enhanced by technology.
