David Correa is a doctoral candidate at the  Institute for Computational Design and Construction at the University of  Stuttgart. He completed a Masters degree in Architecture (M.Arch.) at the University of Calgary and a Bachelors in Architectural Science (B.Arch. Sci) from Ryerson University in Toronto. In 2012 he was awarded the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Student Medal for academic excellence.

Prior to joining the ICD in August 2012, he worked professionally as a designer in both architecture and commercial digital media. His research focuses on the physiological relation of information intensive technologies with architectural theory, practice and material production.
