Tom Svilans is an architectural designer and researcher based in Copenhagen, Denmark. His research focuses on the role of emerging technologies in revealing new modes of material practice and the performative nature of manufacturing. Tom is currently completing a PhD research project at CITA (Centre for IT and Architecture) in Copenhagen, as part of the EU-funded InnoChain training network. The project explores large-scale free-form timber construction in close collaboration with the digital research unit Dsearch at White Arkitekter (SE) and the free-forms department of timber contractor Blumer Lehmann (CH).
