Robert Aish

Prof. Robert Aish has, over the last four decades, played a pivotal role in the development of new computational technologies in architecture. As Director of Software Development at Autodesk, he led the recent development of the ‘DesignScript’, a special end-user programming language for architectural computation. At Bentley Systems his ‘GenerativeComponents’ parametric design application was used in the design of the Velodrome at the 2012 Olympics. He is cofounder of the Smartgeometry group, and through his teaching and publications, he has helped to create a vital bridge between architectural education and practice.
