MILOŠ DIMČIĆ (DE/RS)

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.

The Belgrade Design Week was the best design conference I have ever enjoyed – the specific spirit of the city in a kind of in between status, the rough tension which can still be felt ten years after the bombs, the pride and the looking for new orientation especially in the young generation – all this is giving the BDW a special flair far away from the current events of the global design circus. In addition the enthusiastic organizational team trying hardly but unsuccessfully to keep the program along the schedules, the informal exchange between the international speakers, the loss of any discipline, the parties on the river … what ever and how ever the interrelations between these aspects are working – it makes the BDW an unique, likeable, inspiring and productive event, I will never forget.
