Moritz Fleischmann was a research associate at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) from 2009 - 2010. He moved on to become professor at the University of Applied Sciences, Düsseldorf.
Moritz studied architecture at the RWTH Aachen (Germany) and the ETH Zuerich (Switzerland) and received his Dipl.-Ing. degree in 2006. He worked for Ingenhoven Architects before he joined the Emergent Technologies & Design program at the Architectural Association in London as a DAAD scholarship holder. He received his Master's Degree (MArch.) in February 2009 and joined the ICD to pursue his research as a doctoral candidate.
His interest in architectural material systems and design processes related to biology and computation have led him to lectures and conferences around the globe.
Moritz, along with Sean Ahlquist, formed morse in 2008, a design group aimed at linking research, innovation and professional practice through new design strategies. Their work has been exhibited internationally, and have written articles on their research for Architectural Design (AD) and the International Journal for Architectural Computing. Sean and Moritz have also established the Architectural Research Network (ARN) as a resource for gathering innovative research topics related to and around the field of architecture.
