Daniel Bolojan is a Vienna based computational designer, researcher and architect. He received his diploma from University of Applied Arts, Studio Zaha Hadid, were he was also a Research Assistant, teaching Processing, Mel scripting and Grasshopper.

In 2013, he founded his research studio nonstandardstudio, which focuses on generative strategies (e.g. growth processes, multi-agent systems etc.), targeting creation of highly complex autopoietic systems that offer new opportunities for architectural organization, articulation, and signification.

Since 2014 he is a Junior Associate with Coop Himmelbau where he has been practicing on numerous international projects and competitions. He is leading the office push to develop custom computational tools, computational design strategies, virtual reality/augmented reality applications, and robotic fabrication processes.

He is currently a PhD Research Fellow at University of Applied Arts Vienna, under the supervision of Patrik Schumacher, and also an External Lecturer at Innsbruck University.

  1. hey claudio, pls let me know exactly which picture aren’t loading corect…and I will do my best to fix that…even if now I have a lot of work with my finals reviews

  2. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

  3. Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. After all I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!

  4. i think you have a nice page here… today was my first time coming here.. i just happened to find it performing a google search. anyway, great post.. i’ll be bookmarking this page for sure.

  5. hi Daniel, first of all i want to tell you that i love your work, i love the way you explore the softwares, i am doing the same with rhino+grasshopper. i studied industrial modeling, more surface type softwares like alias stuidiotools, icem, i did a bit of solidwors too.
    i am combining Alias and Rhino+grasshopper.
    I was wondering if u have any advice for research (sites, tutorials, techniques, works) for grasshopper.
    do u have a e-mail, its easier to correspond than a blog.
    i hope to hear from you soon
    keep it up!!!

  6. hello paul

    I’m sorry, but this project it’s not a grasshopper study, it’s more 3d modelling and scripting for ribs.
    if u need any help, just let me know


  7. hi would it be possible to see the ghx for

    threshold concept_urban space_ nss::.

    im learning grasshopper and i would love to see how it works. cheers,m keep up the great work
