Member @ DesignMorphine
Zlatko has been involved with DesignMorphine for some time now and has assisted at several workshops. He has been a tutor for Grasshopper in a digital fabrication workshop. He was teaching first year students about the principles behind computational design during an UACEG practice. He has substantial experience with digital fabrication (Laser Cutters and 3D printers). He has participated and won multiple competitions. His projects are focused on exploring the computational design methods and the ways of optimizing workflow and workload automation. His interests involve kinetic structures, creating active environments and data analysis. His passion is finding real-life material solutions for ideas and abstract concepts.
Research Associate @ ICD Stuttgart
Long Nguyen is a Research Associate at the Institute for Computational Design, where he joined in October 2014. His academic background is in Computer Science, with an emphasis in 3D Computer Graphics. He holds a Bachelor degree in Computer Science from Cambridge University and a Master degree with Distinction in Computer Graphics and Virtual Environment from University College London (UCL).
Long started to be involved with the architecture and building community in 2011, with primary focuses on BIM (Building Information Modelling) and computational design. He developed a small collection of Revit plugins that expands the conceptual modelling capabilities of the software and organized a number of workshops to train architecture students in computational design and thinking using these plugins. In 2013, Long participated in two Zaha Hadid Architects projects in Morocco and China as a technology consultant, in which he led the development of a tool set that enable the shared modelling workflow between Rhinoceros/Grasshopper and Revit.
Long’s current research at the ICD primarily focuses on evolutionary methods as exploratory design tools. He also has a great passion for teaching programming, algorithms, mathematics and computational design thinking, especially to architecture students and practitioners.

Martin has participated in numerous competitions, gaining various awards. His primary focus in the field of parametric and generative design is structural analysis, form optimization and agent-based design. His inspiration is gained mostly through mathematics and quantum physics, which he started learning intensively in high school. Martin has experience in many workshops and courses as a participant and assistant. He has participated in Generative Morphologies V2.0 Workshop and Visual Machine V1.0 Workshop and was an assistant in Computation Matters V1.0 Workshop, Intelligent Tectonics V1.0 Workshop, and Generative Morphologies V3.0 Workshop. Martin has also worked briefly in studio GRID, expanding his knowledge in parametric design. He has few projects developed through the parametric principles and has been lecturing for DesignMorphine.
