Can we learn how to design and build better buildings by putting ourselves in extreme environments? Computational Designer, Jonathan Irawan shares his latest involvement in NASA’s Centennial Challenge to design a 3D Printed Habitat on Mars. He advocates design thinking and new means of multidisciplinary, cross collaboration to envision new ways of design and construction beyond standard earthly conventions.
Jonathan Irawan is a Computational Designer at HASSELL Studio. He applies a Research and Data Driven approach in Design to bridge the gap between Academia and Industry in the implementation of design technology. Having previously worked in delivering multidisciplinary projects within Asia, Australia and the UK, he incorporates a wider perspective in the formulation of design solutions. Innovation is in the forefront of his mission, constantly experimenting and prototyping advanced tools and workflows to augment the design process beyond standard conventions.
