Christopher Robeller was a Research Associate at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) at the University of Stuttgart from 2008 - 2010. In 2011 he become a Doctoral Candidate at the IBOIS group at EPFL directed by Ives Weinand and in 2017 Junior Professor for Digital Timber Construction at University of Kaiserslautern.
At the ICD, Christopher was researching the design-integration of techniques and technologies in computational manufacturing. The main focus of his work was the exploration of robotic machining on the basis of wood as a smart material.
Christopher earned his Professional Diploma in Architecture (RIBA Part 2) with Distinction from London Metropolitan University. He has been the recipient of the Bentley Smart Geometry Scholarship and has worked professionally in Germany with Messerschmid Stuttgart and in the United Kingdom with Urban Future Organization as a specialist consultant in parametric design.
Christopher has lectured and presented his work in the UK, US, Germany and China and has run parametric design workshops as a visiting lecturer for Diploma Unit 16 at the Architectural Association, London Metropolitan University, the University of Nebraska and the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts. His work on parametric modulations involving high-rise structures and natural ventilation received honorable mention in the Architectural Association's Environmental Tectonic Competition and is published in the book Environmental Tectonics.
