Martin Tamke is Associate Professor at the Centre for Information Technology and Architecture (CITA) in Copenhagen. He is pursuing a design led research on the interface and implications of computational design and its materialization. He joined the newly founded research centre CITA in 2006 and shaped its design based research practice. Projects on new design and fabrication tools for wood and composite production led to a series of digitally fabricated demonstrators that explore an architectural practice engaged with bespoke behaviour. He is considered a leading researcher in the emerging field of digital production in building industry with successful engagement in several research and industry based projects. Currently he is involved in the 7th framework project DURAARK, pursuing research into the creation of semantically rich links between Point Clouds and BIM in architectural workflows, the Danish funded 4 year Complex Modelling research project and the Horizon2020 project InnoChain, investigating future digital workflows between the engaged industry and academic partners.

At the Open Lecture Series internationally renowned architects, artists, theoreticians, critics and urbanists from all around the globe give talks to offer fresh perspectives on architecture, design, urban development and critical thought. The lectures are open to everyone interested in the future of our living environment.
