About

Mohamed Zaghloul: is a Ph.D researcher at the chair of Computer Aided Architectural Design (CAAD) at ETH Zürich. His research aims to integrate Machine learning algorithms – Self-organizing maps SOM – with the parametric design process in order to compute the non-linearity relations between the physical parameters of building performances and the building geometry. He holds a Msc degree in architecture and works as an assistant lecturer at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Alexandria University ‐ department of Architecture. He is co-founder and associate architect at Encode studio http://www.encodestudio.net. He developed Mantis as a Mathematica add‐on tools for Grasshopper  http://www.grasshopper3d.com/group/mantis
