Anni Dai is a doctoral researcher at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) at the University of Stuttgart. She holds MArch (Sehr Gut) from Studio Greg Lynn at Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien and BEng (Hons) Architecture degree from Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), which was a double-degree program of both XJTLU, China and the University of Liverpool, UK. Previously Anni worked at Farrells Shanghai and Hong Kong offices for 2 years.
Anni’s master thesis investigates space reconfiguration by co-creation of architects and agent-simulation based machine learning. Her works usually focus on agent-based mobility-informed architectural design with a particular playfulness of space and color. She is currently working on model-based multi-objective optimization algorithm development and the optimization results visualization.
