About Daniel Suárez
Daniel Suárez is an architect and a research fellow at Berlin University of Arts. In his research he investigates processes that focus on translating textile operations from the physical to the digital domain by means of live motion capture systems. The aim is to manipulate such textile digital tectonics in correspondence with the possibilities of design offered by CAD/CAM processes.
Before joining ArcInTexETN Daniel worked as practitioner for more than 12 years. He graduated from Madrid Polytechnic University in 2004 with a MA in Architecture and Urban Planning and also has been trained as CG Architect and Project Management.
