Born in Kuwait, Mohammed has established himself as a research oriented architect. His work has been internationally recognized by both professional and academic institutions alike; where his research has been published and presented across several highly reputable peer reviewed journals and conferences.
Mohammed received his Bachelors in Architecture from the American University of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates, and his Masters in Emergent Technologies and Design (with distinction) from the Architectural Association in London. Mohammed practiced in several firms in the UK and Kuwait serving as a consultant and working his way from junior architect to design director in a record time of only two years. Simultaneous to this however, Mohammed tutored in Kuwait University and the Architectural Association, in the former, working with his students on the pioneering design and construction of 1:1 scale pavilions while in the latter developing progressive urban systems through evolutionary processes.
Alongside MSSM Associates, Mohammed is currently a PhD Candidate at the Architectural Association. His research examines the growth and environmental/social adaptation of urban tissues in the Siberian arctic tundra through the application of an algorithmic biological model of evolutionary development. Working closely with the most progressive computational tools, he has extensively researched the biological principles of evolutionary development, especially in the field of genetics, and firmly believes that their application in urban systems is essential for a more sustainable and adaptive future for our children and grandchildren.
Born in Indonesia, Revano has been highly recognized for his entrepreneurial achievements; founding numerous independent and highly successful firms that have provided services for all stages of the design process, from design and construction, down to the minute details of furniture design and fabrication.
Revano received his Bachelor Degree in architecture from Parahyangan University in Indonesia followed by a Master of Architecture in the field of Emergent Technologies and Design at the Architectural Association in London, where his pioneering research throughout his post-graduate studies allowed him to serve as a consultant for Buro Happold in London on the Cairo Expo City project in Egypt (designed by Zaha Hadid Archtects).
Revano’s highly distinguished career has been cemented with an extensive number of national and international awards, three of which; The Best of The Best, The Excellent Design and Favorite Design, - awarded by the Indonesian Architectural Association - were presented to him during his time in academia. However, his most prized possession was for his achievement in winning 1st place in his first International Competition for the development of Bangka Waterfront City in Indonesia.
More importantly however, Revano ensures that he gives back to the architectural community, holding countless conferences and seminars lecturing to students and professionals alike on the progressive practices of architectural design and how their application is meant to serve all aspects of human life, ensuring his research serves more than just the end user.
Born in Cyprus, Pavlos has established himself as a motivated and hard-working professional, whose work has been published and presented both locally and globally across a multitude of different platforms.
Pavlos received his bachelor degree in Architectural Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens in 2007, followed by a Master of Architecture (with distinction) in the field of Emergent Technologies and Design at the Architectural Association in London. Throughout his post graduate studies, his research examined emergent technologies in the fields of evolutionary computation, digital modelling and simulation, fabrication techniques and performance-oriented design. Moreover, his interest was mostly stimulated by the field of Biomimetics; in particular, Natural Systems and their interconnection with architecture. Pavlos believes that if we take examples from within nature itself, we can draw inspiration that allow us to achieve great results in the world of architecture as well.
Pavlos ensured that his research continued beyond his post-graduate studies, where he tackled the field of bioclimatic architecture through developing and implementing avant-garde passive cooling systems in several projects throughout Cyprus. However, his latest research explores the translation and application of biological metabolic systems for the development of urban tissues. Pavlos has presented the findings of his research at distinguished academic institutions, such as the National Technical University of Athens, University College London (UK) and the Architectural Association (UK), as well published in several mainstream journals throughout the world.
Born in Lebanon, Michel has been involved in various projects in Lebanon and the MENA region, resolving complex structural and architectural designs using cutting edge design techniques, and participating in various architectural competitions.
After graduating from the American University of Beirut (A.U.B.) in 2007 with a Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering, his passion for Architecture took him to the Architectural Association (A.A.) in London where he enrolled in the Master in Emergent Technologies and Design (EmTECH). Graduating from the AA with distinction in 2009, he worked as a consultant for Buro Happold where he had to tackle and resolve the structure of Zaha Hadid's Expo City in Cairo. Michel then worked for 2 years in the Building Design Partnership (B.D.P.) as a RIBA Part II Architect, where he had to design and resolve the structure of the Roofs for 3 IKEA Malls in China (Beijing, Wuxi, Wuhan). During his experience in London he worked on different projects in the UK, France, Poland, and Lebanon.
Michel's education gives him the potential to handle both engineering and architectural issues, applying interdisciplinary methods and tools in a domain of synthesis, involving high-tech building components, ranging from building elements to space structures. During his experience he had to handle such structures and the problems that could arise from their adaptability to the environment, from the conception level to the final implementation, through steps involving analysis, design, scripting, testing, tuning, and detailing. Michel's work and research, especially on tensegrity structures, has been recognised and published worldwide.
