Serban Bodea is a Romanian-born architect with expertise in computation and automation for lightweight architecture. He holds a Master’s Degree from TUDelft. Since 2017 he has been pursuing his PhD at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) at the University of Stuttgart and will defend his thesis in autumn 2021. There, Serban studied Fibrous Morphologies, conducting interdisciplinary research on the coreless filament winding of natural and technical fiber reinforced polymers. Within this context, he contributed to automated composite construction, verifying his research through projects such as the award-winning BUGA Fibre Pavilion (2019) and the ITECH LivMatS Pavilion (2021).
Serban joins the BRG in August 2021 as a post-doctoral researcher in the NCCR Digital Fabrication within the “Lightweight flexible formworks” research stream.
