Richard Mui

Post-M.Arch/Structural Designer

Blackwell Structural Engineers

Richard Mui is a structural designer at Blackwell Structural Engineers who is interested in how structural analysis can be used to inform decision making in architectural design. His Master’s thesis, PTAF: Polygon Tessellation to Approximate Frame, was undertaken in close collaboration with the Living Architecture Systems Group. In the thesis, information from the Amatria test bed was combined with structural approximation to create a technique for parametric structural modeling to be used in conceptual architectural design. He hopes to promote interdisciplinary work both in industry and academia.
