Stig Anton Nielsen

PhD student

Stig Anton Nielsen is Architect, PhD student, and researcher. His project attempts to combine notions from philosophy, artificial intelligence, robotics as well as material and non-material computation, in order to manage and modify the build environment. In 2008 he received his Master of Architecture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Copenhagen, with the project, ‘Metro Mechanics’. The project received national and international attention.
In the years 2008-2012 he worked both at the at the successful and progressive architecture office COBE, as well as the internationally renowned research Center for IT and Architecture (CITA). At CITA he explored computation, large scale CNC fabrication, rapid prototyping and robotic assembly.
He been teaching at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and Chalmers University of Technology, and hosted several international workshops on physical computation. In 2012 he started his PhD research project at Chalmers University of Technology, Dept. of Architecture, where he collaborates with researchers from Computer Science, in both teaching, experimentation and publication. In addition to his PhD, Stig is consulting F&P Personal Robotics, and he was recently Guest Researcher at the Chair for Computer Aided Architectural Design (CAAD) at ITA, ETH.
