Gilles Retsin Architecture is a London based architecture and design practice investigating new architectural models that engage with the potential of increased computational power and fabrication to generate buildings and objects with a previously unseen structure, detail and materiality. The studio is interested in the impact of computation on the core principles of architecture – the bones rather than the skin. Gilles Retsin graduated from the Architectural Association in London, prior to founding his own practice, he worked in Switzerland as a project architect with Christian Kerez, and in London with Kokkugia. He also co- founded SoftKill Design, a collective design studio investigating generative design methodologies for additive manufacturing and 3D-printing. Alongside his practice, Gilles is a lecturer at UCL the Bartlett school of Architecture. He is program director of the M.Arch Architectural Design (AD) course, and co-founder of the UCL Design Computation Lab.
