Tobias Schwinn

Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD), University of Stuttgart

Tobias Schwinn is a lecturer (Akademischer Rat) at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. In research and teaching, he is focusing on behavior-based approaches for integrating robotic fabrication and computational design processes in the context of segmented shell structures. He is one of the founding members and currently leader of ICD’s „Agent-based Modeling and Simulation“ research group, where he supports colleagues in their diverse research areas, such as design of adaptive buildings, fabrication-oriented design of modular concrete structures, and distributed robotics. As Head of Research and Research Infrastructure, he is in charge of the robotic fabrication equipment at the institute’s Robolab and the Computational Construction Laboratory in Wangen.
Prior to joining the ICD in 2011, Tobias worked as a Senior Designer for Skidmore, Owings and Merrill LLP in New York and London applying computational design approaches such as parametric design and scripting to automation, complex geometry, and sustainability at all design stages.

Tobias studied architecture at the Bauhaus-University in Weimar, Germany and at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia as part of the US-EU Joint Consortium for Higher Education. He received his diploma-engineering degree in 2005.

He has been invited studio critic at Columbia GSAPP, Harvard GSD, Pratt Institute, AA London and has taught various workshops on computational design and digital fabrication, among others at University of Sydney as part of the Robotics in Architecture Conference in 2016, at Monash University in Melbourne (MADA) in 2014, at the University of Porto (FAUP) in 2013, at TU Vienna as part of the Robotics in Architecture Conference in 2012, at the Middle Eastern Technical University in Ankara (METU) in 2011, the University of East London (UEL), or the master course at the Dessau Institute of Architecture (DIA).
