Mette Ramsgard Thomsen is an architect working with digital technologies. Her research centres on the design of spaces that are defined by physical as well as digital dimensions. Through a focus on intelligent programming and ideas of emergence she explores how computational logics can lead to new spatial concepts. Mette’s work is practice lead and through projects such as Slow Furl, Strange Metabolisms, Vivisection and Sea Unsea she investigates the design and realisation of a behavioural space. Her research focuses on the relationship between crafts and technology framed through Digital Crafting as way of thinking material practice, computation and fabrication as part of architectural culture.
