Christian Friedrich (1974) joined DEMO as an innovative software developer with a strong contribution to DEMO's research projects. Originally from Germany, he studied architecture in Groningen and at TU Delft. Christian is passionate about working on smart interactions for the built environment and has accumulated more than a decade of experience in architectural design methods. He covered the topics parametric architecture, interactive environments, serious gaming, computational geometry and robotic architecture. His current PhD thesis research at TU Delft addresses architecture on the interface of these topics. As an SBA registered architect, he brought this expertise into architecture practice for some years. At DEMO, Christian now works on European research projects (including STREAMER) and on the ongoing development of the RE Suite.
