Description

Toni Kotnik (born 1969, Germany) received his Ph.D. degree (Dr. sc. Nat.) in mathematics from the University of Zurich, Switzerland, in 1999. After completion of his second degree in architecture he worked as senior researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich and as studio master at the Architectural Association (AA) in London. Dr. Kotnik was Assistant Professor at the Institute for Experimental Architecture at the University of Innsbruck and Associate Professor at the Singapore University of Technology and Design. He is principal of d’HKL, a Zurich-based office focusing on experimental and research-oriented architectural design, and has been lecturing worldwide including Harvard University, Copenhagen Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Princeton University, The Bartlett School of Architecture, Oslo School of Architecture and Design, Sydney University of Technology, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and MoMA New York. His practice and research work has been published and exhibited internationally, including the Venice Biennale, and is centered on the integration of knowledge from science and engineering into architectural thinking and the design process.
