Samuel is a doctoral candidate at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction at the University of Stuttgart. He holds a Bachelor of Design in Architecture, summa cum laude, as well as a Bachelors of Applied Science in Systems Science and Engineering, magna cum laude, from Washington University in St. Louis. He received a Masters in Science in Architecture through the Integrative Technologies and Architectural Design Research (ITECH) program at the University of Stuttgart. During which he was a recipient of both German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Award for Outstanding Achievement and the Deutschlandstipendium. His Master’s thesis together with Ramon Weber was awarded a sonderpreis through the Hochschulpreis Holzbau 2019. Before joining the Institute, Sam worked as an architect in Munich, Germany as well as a designer at a graphic design/ branding firm outside of San Francisco, CA.
Sam’s current research is interested in the creation of bespoke distributed robotic systems for on-site construction. His work explores the notion of the minimal machine required to create complex spatial assemblies and specifically on the co-design of the machines and the structure they can produce.
