Alex has been primarily interested in how emergent organizational systems can be deployed and mis-used for functional purposes. Using computational design workflows, Alex looks to evolutionary intelligence and algorithmic models as the generator of architectural concepts. Using programming languages as an integral part of his design process, Alex works to codify environmental data, urban behavioral data, and any other big datasets and integrate them into architectural systems to create high-performance constructs.
Alex established his own design practice and consultancy firm in 2010, and has worked for firms such as (M)Arch., Marmol + Radziner, Patterns, Coop Himmelb(l)au, Xefirotarch, Jones Partners Architects, and Gensler. Alex holds a Masters of Architecture from the Southern California Institute of Architecture, a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Colorado College, and has also studied architecture and design at the Berlage Institute and Columbia University.
