MILOŠ DIMČIĆ (DE/RS)

Related Projects: Belgrade Design Week Festival 2014

Miloš Dimčić was born in Pancevo, Serbia, in 1982. After graduating from the Faculty of Architecture in Belgrade in 2006, he moved to Germany where he obtained his PhD at the Stuttgart University in 2011.

While working at the Knippers Helbig office in Stuttgart (2007-2009) he single-handedly wrote the software used to generate the entire structure and façade of the new terminal of the Bao’an airport in Shenzhen, China. Designed by M. Fuksas, with 300.000 m2 of free from surface and more than 450.000 structural members, this is probably the largest and most complex parametrically generated structure and façade in the world. He also worked on the structural design of other large scale projects like EXPO Axis in Shanghai and Institute of Peace in Washington (designed by Moshe Safdie).

In 2011 he founded Programming Architecture and has been working in the field of parametric design and static optimization of complex buildings ever since. Among many interesting and diverse projects, he wrote the software used to analyze (and search for errors) the entire façade of the new KAPSARC research center in Riyadh, designed by Zaha Hadid.

In 2013 he was a guest assistant professor at the TU Graz Faculty of Architecture.
He considers himself one of the pioneers in the new growing field of automation in architecture and structural engineering. By combining software for design and static analysis he is trying to speed up the process of structural design, enhance methods of static optimization and improve energy efficiency of buildings.
When he takes a break from C++, he usually plays piano, composes and tries to come up with ideas to pursuit one of his lifelong dreams – to be a film director.

Belgrade Design week unlike so may other city design events has a wonderfully essential vibe about it. Nothing pretentious in the air but big bags of energy and enthusiasm. It feels like the Serbs haven't already decided what design is and so are open and ready to riff off the ideas that come in to sharp focus over these precious days. The city itself has a gritty charm about it which complements the event perfectly.
