Gene Ting-Chun Kao
Gene is a designer, researcher and programmer who specialises computational design, digital fabrication in architecture and visual computing in computer science.
He is a PhD candidate at the Institute of Technology in Architecture at ETH Zurich, where he is a research assistant in the Block Research Group and NCCR Digital Fabrication, supervised by Prof. Philippe Block and co-supervised by Prof. Stelian Coros.
This research presents a computational framework for Assembly-Aware Design (AAD) to develop discretised shell structures that can be constructed with minimal formwork.
