Frans Magnusson

Frans Magnusson is an architect and doctoral student connected to Chalmers and the strong research environment Architecture in the Making. The intention of Frans research is to augment the early stages of the architectural design process with computational design knowledge, aiming to bring clients and users into a close relation with form generation and evaluation. This introduces efficiency as a tangible concept during the formation of a building as opposed to after-the-fact optimizations. Frans is a frequent lecturer and tutor in computational design and digital fabrication.
