about us

This pavilion has been designed and produced by Michele Leidi, Min-Chieh Chen and Dominik Zausinger with the help of Jeannette Kuo and the supervision of Tom Pawlofsky.

This work is the final project of the Master Advanced Study group at the Department of Computer Aided Architectural Design (CAAD) at the ETH Zurich in Switzerland. The CAAD Department is specialized in the application of information technologies in the field of architecture and in computer-controlled fabrication.

is a Swiss engineer EPFL (MSc) and architect ETHZ (MAS),
he worked for several years as an engineer and has been research assistant at EPFL-LSRO, at EPFL+ECAL Lab. His current works are at the crossroads between technology, design and sustainable architecture. 

Dominik Zausinger
is a German architect Dipl.Ing. (FH) Trier and ETHZ (MAS),
He worked for different architecture offices across Europe and Japan. His special interest is focused on the implementation of evolutionary processes into urban and architectural design.

Min-Chieh Chen
is a Taiwanese Master of Architecture at Tamkang University and architect ETHZ (MAS),
he works and researches about digital fabrication and simulation of design process in architectural field since 2003. Now his focus are hunting the possibilities to combine physical computing and programming in computer aided architectural design.

Tom Pawlofsky
is a German graduated Product Designer. After his carpenter-apprenticeship in Berchtesgaden he studied in Karlsruhe and Zurich. At the CAAD lab his teachings and his research are focused on the tension between design, computer science, craftsmanship and cnc-production.
