We form a team where science and art meet technology. We create and research at the intersection of architectural design, lightweight structures & geometry. We design multi-objective sustainability and pass our knowledge to the game changers of tomorrow.
Fereshteh Khojastehmehr is a Ph.D. researcher and University Assistant at the Lightweight Structures Unit, the University of Innsbruck.

Günther H. Filz [Professor]
Günther H. Filz is a Professor of Lightweight Architecture at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Innsbruck, Austria, where he heads the Lightweight Structure unit. He is also a Professor of Structures and Architecture at Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland. His interest has especially been on the profound changes that selforganizing forms and processes - from minimal surfaces to bending active structures - instigate in the way architecture is thought, designed and built. His “fat-free-design” approach results in intelligent, innovative and sustainable lightweight structures.
