DCL TALKS: Manuel Jimenez Garcia + Gilles Retsin

Join us on Wednesday April 6th in the Digital Craft Lab for a talk hosted by Manuel Jimenez Garcia and Gilles Retsin, visiting from The Bartlett.

Manuel Jimenez Garcia is Course Master of Research Cluster 4 at the MArch Graduate Architectural Design (GAD) and Unit Master of MArch Unit 19 at The Bartlett School of Architecture. He is also curator of the Bartlett Computational Plexus and Programme Director at the Architectural Association’s Visiting School in Madrid. He is the co-founder of madMdesign, an architecture practice based in London.   

Gilles Retsin is a London based architect and designer investigating new architectural models which engage with the potential of increased computational power and fabrication to getnerate buildings and objects with a previously unseen structure, detail and materiality. His work is interested in the impact of computation on the core principles of architecture — the bones rather than the skin. He co-founded SoftKill Design, a collective design studio investigating generative design methodologies for additive manufacturing and 3D-printing. Alongside his practice, Gilles directs research sluster 4 at UCL/the Bartlett school of Architecture, and senior lecturer at the University of East-London.
