Ekin Sila Sahin is a research-oriented architect and designer who is deeply interested in the interplay between material, programming, and robotics. Being inspired by natural and adaptive systems, her current research focuses on the development of computational design methods through which material properties, behaviors, and their multifaceted performance criteria become generative of complex design processes. 

She holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the Istanbul Technical University as well as a Master of Science from the Integrative Technologies and Architectural Design Research (ITECH) program at the University of Stuttgart. During her studies, she worked in renowned architectural offices and has been actively involved in national and international organizations for developing the students of technology and their systems of education.

As a part of the Material Programming Research Group at ICD, Ekin is currently working on a large-scale building demonstrator with a focus on 4D Printing, machine control, and programming.
