[uto], based in Innsbruck, Austria, are architects and specialists in computational design with several years of practice and teaching experience.They graduated with distinction from the University of Innsbruck, advised by Patrik Schumacher, with a degree in Architecture. They lectured, led studios and run workshops worldwide at the AA, the University of Pennsylvania, SCI-ARC - the Southern California Institute of Architecture, Tamkang University in Taipei, and AAG10 Vienna, among others.
They have also been recognized for their development, with [uto], of digital tools, namely PhysX, Geco, Flowlines, MeshPaint and MeshEdit, which seek to improve workflow in a parametric environment. [uto]’s work in this area has been featured in AD Issue: Computation Works: The Building of Algorithmic Thought (02.2013).
Their research focuses, along with the generation and analysis of complex geometries, on the development of
formal strategies, data driven design approaches and generative structures, implementing and evaluating the
physical matter of a design. They have been recognized for their development of digital tools, namely PhysX,
Geco, Flowlines, MeshPaint and MeshEdit, which seek to improve workflow in a parametric environment.
