About Oliver David Krieg : Oliver David Krieg is an expert in computational design and digital fabrication in architecture. As Director of Technology at LWPAC in Vancouver, Canada, and doctoral candidate at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, his work aims to enable reciprocities between design, technology and materiality in order to reconceptualize how architecture can be designed, fabricated, and constructed. His projects are characterized by an integrative approach engineering, material science, sustainability, building physics, and manufacturing.
STATEMENT OF ART:
As an architect, designer and PhD researcher I have engaged with both wood and digital technologies for almost ten years. I have always been fascinated by the relationship between the scientific, almost purely mathematical approach of robotic fabrication, and the aesthetics of the material that is directly affected by this process. In my opinion, the tension between the digital and physical - the method and the result - is most prevalent in wood. The richness and visual detail of a wooden surface stands in contrast to the clean manufacturing process, and yet they depend on each other. While I was conducting research about architectural potentials of robotic fabrication at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction at the University of Stuttgart, I couldn't help but notice the aesthetic potentials of this captivating relationship. I founded odk.design to explore these potentials further.
