Burçin Nalinci is a designer and a researcher with an MS. in Architectural Technologies from Sci-Arc and Bachelor of Architecture from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. She currently works as a computational design and fabrication consultant in Los Angeles, California. Her work has been published in ACADIA, Facade Tectonics World Congress, and SMAC News.

She is curious in exploring new methods and tools that extend digital design into physical space for an iterative design process. Her work looks at custom design methods, automation, custom machines and materialization. Each project starts as a fun prototype, and is rationalized as it needs to be scaled!

Can we design new methods that extend the design framework from digital to physical, with the realization of material properties?
