Alexandre Dubor (M) is an architect and researcher combining new technologies in an attempt to reinvent how we build and live in our cities. He holds a Master degree of Architecture & Engineering from EAVT & ENPC (France) and Master Degree of Architecture from IAAC (Spain), with a specialisation in robotic fabrication and large scale additive manufacturing (FabBot 3.0). He hold as well a French architectural licence (HMONP) and have worked in various architectural office from competition stage to delivery (Libeskind, Atenastudio, iDonati, AREP, Appareil) while exploring the potential of scripting and coding in a separate practice in the field of web design (Collectif277). Since 2012, he is part of the R+D department in IAAC and work at FabLab Barcelona as a Digital fabrication & robotic expert in various applied research and execution work. He is currently teaching Digital Fabrication in IAAC and external workshop around the world while taking part in international conferences on thematics linked to advanced manufacturing in architecture, art and design.
Sofoklis Giannakopoulos is a Greek Architect. He holds a Bachelor of Arts from London, followed by a Master in Advanced Architecture in the field of “Fabrication Ecologies“ and a Open Fabrication Thesis in additive manufacture with natural materials supervised by Enrico Dini, both obtained at IAAC. He has experienced and worked in traditional carpentry for housing and restoration of sailing boats and motorbikes (restoring mechanical parts and not only). After his bachelor graduation he was worked in Athens in diverse architecture firms , where he was mainly involved in design for housing and creating concepts for public building complexes, participating and wining awards in Greek national architectural competitions. He has been involved to various design classes and lectures, giving drawing classes by mixing digital media and manual ways of drawing. He has experience with many digital fabrication tools as Kuka robots. Currently he is a member of the IAAC Fabrication Research Team, researching the fabrication of a large scale 3d printer while also developing a “new” natural and biodigretable printable material based on soil for big scale additive manufacturing.
