Anton Savov

Anton is an architect and scientific assistant at the chairs of Prof. Daniel Hall (Innovative and Industrial Construction) and Prof. Benjamin Dillenburger (Digital Building Technologies), ETH Zürich.

His research explores the use of games and crowdsourcing in architectural design as a means to balance between algorithmically predefined alternatives and open-ended creativity.

Currently, he is working on the 7DayHouse project – a collaborative, fabrication-aware, generative design system. With it, customers and architects create and iterate the design of a fully customized home within one day, maintaining supply-chain continuity for fabrication and delivery within 7 days.

Anton holds a Master of Arts in Advanced Architectural Design from the Städelschule Architecture Class in Frankfurt under the direction of Ben van Berkel and Johan Bettum and a Diploma in Architecture from UACEG, Sofia, Bulgaria.He has held research and teaching positions at the Digital Design Unit (DDU) of the Technical University of Darmstadt and Städelschule Architecture Class.

His industry experience is broad from using computational design techniques to facilitate projects for Bollinger+Grohmann Ingenieure, to realising his own projects and art installations with the experimental practice AWARE.  Lastm he is the founder of a startup which offered floor plan generation, search and analysis for the prefab and industrialized construction of houses.

His work has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale, MAK Center for Art and Architecture in Los Angeles, NODE Frankfurt and others.
