David Stieler is a Research Associate at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) at the University of Stuttgart. His research, which is affiliated to the nation-wide SPP 2187 "Adaptive Modular Construction with Flow Production Methods", is focused on the application of agent-based modelling techniques on material and production systems for pre-fab concrete construction. Through the introduction of learning techniques to multi-agent systems, this research seeks to liquefy the segmented character of current design procedures in the field of prefabricated concrete construction.
David holds a Dipl.-Ing. degree in architecture from the University of Innsbruck, Austria. For his thesis focused on the intersection of robotic embodiment and material agency, he was awarded the Dean's Prize of the Faculty of Architecture. Before joining ICD, David worked as a researcher on the development of market-ready 3d printing solutions for the concrete industry and as a teaching assistant at the University Innsbruck. He gained working experience in several offices across Germany, France & the Netherlands.
