The Architecture Department welcomes designer Roland Snooks for his lecture, Behavioral Tectonics.

Roland Snooks directs the architectural practice Snooks + Harper and the RMIT Architecture | Tectonic Formation Lab where he is an Associate Professor. His design research explores the generation of intricate tectonics through behavioral processes of formation and robotic fabrication. Prior to his current position at RMIT University, Roland taught widely in the US, including at the University of Pennsylvania, Columbia University, SCI-Arc, and the Pratt Institute. He holds a PhD from RMIT University, and a master in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University where he studied on a Fullbright scholarship.

Roland's work has been exhibited widely and acquired by collections including the Centre Pompidou, the National Gallery of Victoria, and the FRAC Collection. His work is the subject of a recent monograph, Behavioral Formation, published by ACTAR, Barcelona.
