Satoru Sugihara

Satoru Sugihara is a computational designer and a principal at the computational design studio ATLV founded in 2012 engaging in designs of complex and yet rational facades and buildings such as the roof façade of Milano Expo China Pavilion and the façade of Istanbul City Museum. Prior to starting his firm, he worked as a computational designer at Morphosis Architects from 2007 to 2012 working on various projects including the courtyard façade of Emerson College Los Angeles Center and the façade of Cornell University Gates Hall. He also worked at DR_D and Greg Lynn FORM as an architectural designer. He taught computational design seminars at Southern California Institute of Architecture from 2011 to 2017. He also taught workshop at UCLA, AA Visiting School Bilbao, the University of British Columbia, Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Architecture Paris-Malaquais, and National Taiwan University of Science and Technology.
Satoru Sugihara received the M.S. in computer science from Tokyo Institute of Technology in 2001 and the M.Arch. from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2006.
He publishes open source computational design software iGeo for computational design practice and education. He was the recipient of the Best Paper Award at ACADIA conference 2014. He had his solo exhibition “Agent-Based Computational Design” at AA[n+1] gallery in Paris in 2015. He also publishes open-source computational design software iGeo to contribute to the computational design industry and education.
