Moritz Dörstelmann (Building, the Future)

is a Research Associate and Doctoral Candidate at the Institute for Computational Design at Stuttgart University since 2011. He studied architecture at the RWTH Aachen University and the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, where he graduated with distinction from the master class of Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher. Dörstelmann´s research focuses on integrated computational design and fabrication strategies for novel fiber composite building systems. In interdisciplinary cooperation with experts in aerospace- and structural engineering, biology and textile technology he realized a series of fibrous lightweight structures which are material efficient, and explore a novel architectural design repertoire. His research achieves simultaneous advancement of building culture and technology. Moritz Dörstelmann´s projects are internationally published and exhibited. He lectures and gives workshops at international institutions, including the Harvard GSD.
