Alejandro García Gadea is an Architect interested in computational building strategies that couple algorithm-driven design and digital fabrication as a new approach to Architecture. 
 
Alejandro is currently employed as a Part III ARB Registered Architect at Zaha Hadid Architects (London), working on computational workflows from design to construction on several ongoing projects. He is also collaborating as an expert in computational design and digital fabrication on several computational workshops at Architectural Association and Design Morphine. He has previously worked in several architectural offices in the United Kingdom and Spain such as HKS Architects (London), Grimshaw Architects (London), Robert Stuart-Smith Design Ltd (London), b720 Arquitectos (Barcelona), Eneseis (Alicante); and has co-funded the ‘Reclaiming Heritage’ NGO (Berlin) for emergent design proposals to reconstruct houses after natural disasters in Chile and Haiti. Moreover, he worked as a researcher and consultant in digital fabrication at the FabLab of Alicante (Spain) and as a student assistant at the Architectural Association Digital Prototyping Lab.
 
Alejandro completed his Post-professional Masters in Architecture and Urbanism (AADRL) , with his research focused on bottom-up building strategies involving aerial robotics for 3d printing. He studied Architecture at the University of Alicante (Spain) with exchanges at the Technishe Universität Berlin (Germany) and California State University Long Beach (United States).  This international background, both as a student and as a tutor, gave Alejandro a wider knowledge on design methodologies in Architecture.  He is very interested in improving architecture´s performance and impact in society through the use of computer programming and tailored technical solutions.
