Computational Design, Digital Fabrication, Traditional Craft, Circular Material Resources
Dominik is an architectural and computational designer with a special interest in digital fabrication, traditional craft, and material culture. He has taught as a teaching assistant at the Chair of Computer Science in Architecture at Bauhaus University Weimar and at Munich University of Applied Sciences. Dominik worked for architecture offices in Germany and Denmark, focusing on computational design, circular design, and sustainability. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Munich University of Applied Sciences and a Master of Science in Architecture from Bauhaus University Weimar. In his thesis, he developed an integrated workflow for the design and robotic fabrication of free-form timber structures using waste wood. Since October 2022, Dominik is a doctoral student in the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Digital Fabrication at ETH Zurich, Department of Architecture, and is co-supervised by Prof. Dr. Silke Langenberg (Construction Heritage and Preservation) and Prof. Dr. Benjamin Dillenburger (Digital Building Technologies). Dominik’s research focuses on developing algorithmic design tools and digital fabrication processes to repurpose stone waste with irregular geometries for architectural finishes.
